Australian artist considers Canada second home

Australian singer-songwriter Toby has always loved Canada. As she explains, “ “Each time I perform in Canada, the fan base slowly builds. I would be very very happy to play there a whole lot more.” Described on stage as raw, feisty, and energetic, Toby’s music simple, yet lyrical prose. Whether its on guitar or piano, Toby explores and variety of speeds and styles with a touch of her Australian Roots.

Toby plays at Café Deux Soleil in Vancouver on July 20th, and several more dates across Canada over the course of the next month and a half. Included are stops in Duncan, Creston, and Enderby, BC; as well as cities like Ottawa. Admission is free and donations are encouraged and expected.

Sleeptalk is her fourth full-length album. She has played with such luminaries as Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, and the Indigo Girls. When she’s not touring Canada and Europe, she makes her home in Perth, Australia.
