In a crowded social-media driven marketplace, Toby Lightman's pure and soulful voice connects with listeners emotionally and cuts through the noise. In the 15 years since signing with a major label, Toby has developed and mastered her own sophisticated and unique urban pop sound.
Darling to the normally harsh critics, Lightman received high praise from magazines like Rolling Stone, People, Billboard and others, which led to appearances on Letterman, Carson Daly, Conan, CBS Morning Show and more. Prince happened to be watching the night Toby appeared on Conan and was so impressed with her performance he invited her to open for him.
Additionally, Toby has enjoyed tremendous success licensing her music for placement in film and TV, with credits including commercials for Microsoft and KMART, as well as her songs placed on episodes of Desperate Housewives, One Tree Hill, Vampire Diaries, 90210, The Fosters , and many more.
Toby is currently producing her new recordings entirely on her own, playing all of the instruments and mixing the tracks as well. Her new album, her first full-length original album since 2015 is to be released in early 2021 with a new single “Ebb and Flow” released in December 2020.
Toby Lightman’s story is still being told, and she will be touring in support of new, deeply personal music in the months and years to come.
