My Name is Toby I play the bass and sing a few songs.
A good karaoke night on Friday at the pub also a good jam session on Sunday’s. The music scene in Byron is really good at the moment too with bands like Mini Skirt doing gigo’s at the pub.
In 2014 Benny and Jon had been playing for about a year as a 2 piece around here and then I joined the band with another mate. Benny and I were living together for a few years before we started playing together….. I kind of just got up with them when they were playing at the Northern.
I write song really fast and on impulse, I just make a melody and try to kind of freestyle a verse. I don’t usually spend more than 20 minutes on a song. Benny goes back to his and works on them for years sometimes, thats probably why I like his more lol.
I don’t know…… I like good melodies and stories.
I first got a drum kit and learnt how to play that so I could start a band straight away. The first song we made up was called The Goon Room Song, the goon room is the room where we jammed. Very creative haha.
We recorded it at the grove studios at the start of the year.
Up in the clouds. When Ben showed me that song I don’t think I felt the same feeling about a song since I heard him play LSD for the first time.
The most rewarding thing is being able to put something on and its makes so many people happy. The most taxing thing is being drained mentally from feeling such crazy emotions all within a hour.
Gardening, Skateboarding, Surfing and reading.
We don’t know yet. We have the laneway tour and hopefully a few more tours?
The Bahn Mi joint in Byron that is near the RSL.
