2015 marks another incredible year for Perth’s own Toby Beard. After launching her latest album, ‘Nobody Told Me‘ to a sold out crowd in her home town at The Freo Arts Centre, she once again headed off in March on a five week tour of Europe with her wife and 3 month old baby in tow. Come June, she began another epic 7 week tour with dates in Germany (to her biggest festival crowds yet), The Netherlands, Switzerland, Canada and Salt Lake City USA. Throw in a three week East Coast tour, a quick September Euro tour and her first gigs in the Northern Territory and 2015’s a wrap.
Toby‘s latest effort ‘In Your Skin‘ explores exciting new territory, working closely with producer Joel Quartermaine (Eskimo Joe). She plans to launch this single in Perth later in the year. In the meantime she’ll be rocking out at her old stomping grounds, Settlers Tavern in Margaret River on Friday 26th then straight to The Indi Bar on Saturday 27th February after many months hiatus. Toby and the band will also be returning to Nannup Music Festival in March. She will be playing an intimate style show at The Ellington, Perth on Tuesday 29th March. From there 2016 is another jam packed year with a short tour to The Netherlands and Belgium in March and back to Europe in April, once again with her wife and child along for the ride. July and August see her returning to previously played festivals, Skagen Fest in Denmark, Womens Red Rock Fest in Utah and Sunshine Music Fest in BC, Canada with a host of dates to be announced along the way. Toby will be spending her limited downtime recording some exciting new singles. Watch this space.
