Teri Tobin / Bio

Born on Valentine’s Day, this Arizona-born soulstress, songwriter and producer had sounds of soul music flowing through her veins at an early age. While voice training in those days started at her grandmother’s church, her professional singing career began as a child when she was chosen to sing background vocals for the legendary Jeffrey Osborne, and for the Rock Band Yes. The former beauty pageant winner decided long ago that music was her true passion and has set her sights on her dream ever since. While studying classical voice at Howard University, Tobin gained stage experiences performing with the school’s Chorale in which during President Clinton’s Inaugural Gala on the National Mall, performing background for Diana Ross, Whitley Phipps, and shared the stage with Patti LaBelle, Luther Vandross, Shai and many others. Having performed demos and background vocals for artists such as Joe, Chico DeBarge, Coolio, Chante Moore, Korea-based Uptown, Coco Lee and Mica Paris, has prepared Tobin for her moment to shine as a solo artist. Although most of her influences are male singers like Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and Donny Hathaway, Tobin is reminiscent of the sultry sounds and richness of R&B or Jazz singers of yesterday. “I feel like this is what I was put on this earth to do," says Tobin. In 2011, Tobin independently released the critically acclaimed debut LP, Love Infinity as well as her first Christmas EP, Christmas Child. Now she returns with her follow up second full-length studio LP entitled So Good To Me (Summer 2012), packed with hit songs such as the recently released lead title track “So Good to Me” featuring Morris Alan produced by Ahmed Sirour, and the second single “Love Me” produced by award-winning Tall Black Guy Productions. Tobin's music can be heard on terrestrial and internet stations worldwide, DirecTV (Sonic Tap – Silky Soul), and on select airlines in-flight. Her international hit-single "Free" (Love Infinity) remained at the #1-spot for continuous weeks on various charts in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. Tobin, SoulTracks 2011 Readers' Choice Awards and Independent Music Awards Nominee, is currently touring select cities in the U.S. with her "Love&Sōl LIVE" concert series which kicked-off at the legendary Roxy Theatre in December 2011. Her international hit-single "Free" (Love Infinity) remained at the #1-spot for continuous weeks on various charts in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. Tobin punctuates each line with heart and soul, speaking to every generation with each melodic phrase. Prepare to be touched by her honesty as she expresses her unwavering admiration of her first true love…….music.
