Toby Roberts is one of the new breed of singer/songwriters emerging to give an audience raised on a diet of sugar-pop and R&B, a taste of genuine musical passion and lyrical depth. His music is acoustic guitar based, but covers a wide range of styles from pop, folk and ballad, through to funk.
The heartbreaking melodies and rich harmonies of Toby's music unify these styles and complement the intelligence and emotion of his lyrics. Toby's songs often tell a tale and always feature strong imagery. He explores the darker side of classic pop song issues such as love, loss and addiction, providing a welcome new perspective to themes which have long dominated the musical landscape.
Toby's band, The Siege of Troy, provides an experienced platform of drums, bass and backing vocals, leaving Toby plenty of room to put his heart and soul into his voice and his guitar. The band is currently working on Toby's first album, which is scheduled for release later this year.
