Not sure why Toby is not huge! You like Joss Stone or Joan Osbourne for their sweet smoky bluesy voice, then you will love Toby Lightman. I've loved her for a few years now, she's a great songwriter and singer!

This Sound Is Where Toby Belongs! AWESOME!

Levon Slowly Dies,

I saw Toby Lightman open for Rob Thomas several years ago and was electrified. In listening to her studio efforts since, however -- while impressed with her artistry, soulfulness, and pitch perfection -- I was never able to recapture that feeling -- UNTIL NOW! This album is fantastic! This is how these great songs were meant to be performed -- acoustically. The arrangements are fantastic, and Toby shines. This album should serve a memo to Big Music that the best way to showcase an amazing artist is to give the producers the day off and let the artists be themselves. Toby's style has a little bit of everything -- pop, soul, blues, country (?) -- and I would recommend this album to anyone who's never heard her before, or who has heard her previous work and is interested in hearing the best album to come from Toby Lightman yet!

About Toby Lightman

Toby Lightman studied violin growing up in New Jersey, but it wasn't until college that she began to seriously consider a career in music. She studied radio and television at the University of Wisconsin, learning guitar in her spare time and singing with cover bands. After school Lightman moved to New York, where a fortuitous meeting with Wyclef Jean led to him producing her demo. The tape caught the attention of producer Peter Zizzo, who helped the young songwriter develop a light, marketable mix of subtle drum programs with plenty of acoustic guitar and Lightman's own expressive vocals. A round of 2003 label showcases led to a deal with Lava/Atlantic, and by late that year, the single "Devils and Angels" was making noise at Hot AC radio formats. Early 2004 found Lightman on the road, hitting radio stations and small clubs (including opening slots for Howie Day) in preparation for the March release of Little Things. A year later, Lightman released two singles, Connect Set and Real Love. In 2006, he released Bird on a Wire, an album far more noticeably mature than her 2004 LP. The gospel- and jazz-imbued Let Go arrived in 2008, followed by the all acoustic Know Where I'm From in 2010, and the Holding a Heart EP in 2013. ~ Johnny Loftus
