Many would argue great music is an expression of honest emotion and spirit, in a universal language that has no boundaries. Clearly, this is the force moving through the stunningly innovative singer/songwriter Toby TomTom. Toby’s distinctive style of music is driven by the lyrical honesty and simplicity of folk combined with the grit and grind of Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, and Rock.
Toby TomTom, is an Artist Songwriter/producer and visual artist from Akron, Ohio now based out of Long Island, New York. He is driven by the lyrical honesty and simplicity of folk music. His song lyrics and melodies are written in his dreams, chorded out on acoustic guitar and, converted into sonic events pulling on his roots in Hip-Hop/R&B, Funk, Jazz, Classical & EDM (Electronic Dance Music) music!
