Overview

Local Perth talent TOBY, is to release her much anticipated 6th full length album 'Nobody Told Me' on Saturday February 21, in the serene settings of the Fremantle Arts Centre. In line with her previous launches, Toby is set to hit the stage with an ever impressive 10 piece band. The evening is sure to be a show stopper, with Toby bringing her flair for unique and theatrical onstage performances, together with her definitive power vocals and rocking guitar work.

'I'm so excited to be playing in this stunning venue and to be back on stage with a big band, rocking out with a few of WA's best. I like to make my launches a real treat, almost as a thank you for my fans, so I'm in the midst of planning a bunch of surprises for the audience.'

'Nobody Told Me', was recorded at Bear Creek Studio in Seattle with acclaimed producer Ryan Hadlock (Lumineers, Vance Joy, Brandi Carlile) and engineer Jerry Streeter. Toby worked with an array of notable musicians on the album from bands including The Shins, Cold War Kids, The Lumineers and Vance Joy. The album is the result of a few life affirming years for the artist and the songs are simply Toby's take on life on the road, travel, dreams, love in all it's forms, independence and everything in between. The sound of the album reflects the rawness and honesty of Toby as a person and a songwriter and marks a real shift for the artist.

This album release is once again preceded by years of worldwide touring, playing everything from sold out headline shows to impressive festival slots and supports, from barnyard gigs to canal boats and intimate bodegas for a lucky few. Her reputation as a must-see, emotionally charged live performance, intertwined with tracks guaranteed to get you moving, precedes her wherever she plays.

Following her WA launch, Toby is jetting off to release the album in Europe, Canada, USA and across the rest of Australia
