Toby Robinson is a Melbourne folk / indie pop singer/songwriter. A native of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, with a childhood steeped in the music of the finger picking greats of folk, Toby learned guitar at his father’s knee. From busking as a kid at Eumundi markets to playing in bands with his brother throughout his teens, music is the constant in his life.
Toby was a founding member of The Promises, whose highly regarded self titled debut ep was played regularly on Triple J, PBS, RRR, and ABC radio nationwide. Toby has toured and appeared in festivals across Australia, co‐writing and playing alongside the likes of Jen Cloher, Missy Higgins and Jordie Lane and supporting acts including Neko Case, Archie Roach, Mark Seymour, Eddie Reader and Toni Childs.
