Toby is the quintessential musical journeyman.
He produces, he mixes, he manages, he teaches and he plays just about everything. He's toured in the U.K, The U.S, Europe and Japan but for the last thirty years, he has been, most fundamentally, a singer-songwriter and a recording artist.
So, what’s the Toby May story to date?
A teenage drummer, then drummer/singer, he recorded first album and pressed first CDs in 1996, before moving to the USA where he learnt the full sweep of skills required of an indie artist: performer, songwriter, studio artist, manager, booking agent.
On his return in the early 2000's his band CATCHA signed to London based Lotus Records to produce and tour and album with John McKenzie (bass) and Blair Cunningham (drums).
In 2009, his band put together an acoustic album mixed by Laurence Manchester, mastered by Fred Kevorkian in NYC.
Toby May became a solo artist in 2012 when he collaborated with Caribbean superstars Kassav’ on several recordings and live shows. Then, he put all of his indie skills together and created his recording studio/production house: Unagi Sound.
“We design sounds to tell stories” became the mantra of his audio/visual work which he successfully delivered for corporate clients such as: WHO, Lombard Odier, United Nations, FIBA, Lenz & Staehelin (education, podcast, press conference, promotional video, audio signature, voice over, sound design) but also the work with artists (songwriting, lyrical content, arrangements, production).
