““Local singer, songwriter and guitarist Toby prides herself on giving a killer live performance but to date, she had yet to capture that rollicking passion, exuberance and sheer joy on album. Like her last album, this one does stand on its own, particularly songs such as Karma, All I Need and Tu Es Belle. What’s most obvious is how comfortable Toby seems laying open her emotions. It’s brave and sexy as she mines a mix of folk, pop, roots and reggae.” ”

    “What sets Toby apart from other performers mining a similar vein is her infectious energy, a kind of worldly appreciation of life that makes even her most melancholy songs thrum with a kind of joyousness. It’s a key reason why her live performances are so acclaimed, and it’s translated well here. Toby has crafted a well-rounded release that encapsulates her sound while still being acoustically diverse. Opening track Again is rife with country twang, and closing number Good Old Days is a weird. off-kilter polka, somewhat reminiscent of an upbeat Tom Waits tune. In between, the album runs the gamut of moods and emotions, and although Toby is renowned as a singer/songwriter, the standout track is actually a cover: the stripped back, elegiac paean to lost love, Rather Go Blind. All up Sleeptalk is a fitting framework for Toby’s powerful vocals and emotionally raw song writing, and will find it ticks all the right boxes. (X-press Magazine January 2011) “Blessed not only with a pair of powerful pipes but also a wicked sense of sonic humour, popular local roots chanteuse Toby made her much anticipated return to the WA circuit on Friday night, inviting old and new fans alike to trek down to the Fly By Night in Fremantle to celebrate the launch of her fourth LP Sleeptalk.
