Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Toby has immersed himself in all genres of American

Music of the last 50 years. His interest in African Rhythms & World Music, coupled with his keen ear for

highly intuitive arrangements, has been the hallmark of his writing and performance styles, and he has

garnered a strong following of listeners on Long Island and beyond. A graduate of the prestigious Rubin

Academy of Music in Jerusalem Israel, he continues to search for material that stays as close to his

musical roots as possible while at the same time reaching for new and exciting musical universes.
