Toby Mobbs Music
Toby Mobbs is a librarian by day and pop-folk singer-songwriter by night. Mobbs has sought to carve a unique music style both live and in the studio by incorporating thick, dynamic, and rhythmic guitar, warm vocals, and introspective lyrical storytelling. When not in his hometown of Albury NSW, you will find him traveling around Australia finding new towns and audiences to connect with, providing insight into the stories behind the music, and promoting his latest studio releases.
While Toby has been labelled one of the hardest working independent touring musicians in the country, his studio recordings shine a different light to his stripped back performances on stage. These recordings break far away from the solo artist typecast, showcasing a unique interpretation of the many musical genres that inspire his writing.
In 2022 Mobbs toured every Australian capital city for his ‘Placid In The Rough’ National Tour travelling 14,500km in his car over 28 days. This tour promoted his debut album by the same name with tracks taking out the #1 spot on the Atomic music charts for an unprecedented 15 consecutive weeks, #1 spot for Rock and #2 overall on the Triple J Unearthed charts, and #3 on AMRAP's national weekly regional charts.
