Melbourne singer-songwriter Toby Robinson grew up on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. His childhood was steeped in the fingerpicking greats of folk, as he learned guitar at his father’s knee. From busking as a kid at Eumundi markets to playing in bands with his brother throughout his teens, music has always been home to Robinson. After years supporting and touring with other artists, Toby felt compelled to create something of his own.
Toby’s debut self-titled release was created over two years, in collaboration with his great friends and bandmates, Rob Kidd and Craig Hadlow, and Producer Nick Huggins.
“This album is my most courageous act as an artist,” says Toby. “Nick and I began the process by recording a single guitar in a shed in a small town outside Melbourne. Understanding the vision of this project, each artist who has worked on the record has invested in it emotionally and artistically, thus adding their own special touch to it. I’m so proud of and pleased with the end result”
With diverse influences ranging from Ry Cooder, John Renbourne, and The Shins to Nick Drake and The Cure, Toby’s album celebrates the story of his own musical roots, whilst forging ahead to create his own heartening sound, blending folk, alt-country, and indie pop.
The official album launch at Bella Union on Friday 5 June features support from Leah Senior (soon to release her own album). A generation in the making, this night promises to be a memorable, intimate evening of beautiful songs and stories.
