2017 has been yet again, another huge year for Perth singer/songwriter Toby Beard. Highlights have been performing at L-fest (UK), Bierfest (Germany), Blues at Bridgetown Festival and Fremantle Folk Festival, playing to a sold out crowd at her home town CD launch (Fly By Night Club, Fremantle), performing over 40 shows in Europe, plus shows in Utah (USA) and Canada.
Other highlights are having new local band members join the team – Jarrad Van Dort on guitar and Alex Barker on drums – they have added to a new sound and a new vibe to Toby’s already huge catalogue of original songs.
For Toby’s new six track EP she worked with Eskimo Joe’s Joel Quatermain. “Working with Joel Quartermain is always amazing. He is such a creative soul and belongs in the studio”. Eskimo Joe’s Quartermain recorded and produced half the album, and played drums/bass/keys/electric guitar. The other half is recorded by Rada Studio’s Matt Gio – also playing drums and bass on the tracks. “Matt and I seemed to gel instantly and I am stoked with the end product.”
Toby will finish off 2017 by performing at her favourite Perth venue, The Ellington Jazz Bar. “Playing at the Ellington does remind me of playing in Europe – which I adore. It’s a crowd that is there purely for the music. They are a supportive crowd who’s main focus is the music and the musicians. This creates such a beautiful atmosphere and there’s a real energy bouncing around the room between audience members and band members”.
