To quote BBC6 Music's Tom Robinson, Toby Corton is a 'charismatic queer cockney creative' currently based in East London.

His music has been described by Earmilk as “British soul, held together by a modern indie pop overtone” and it's looking as though it could be an exciting year for his music.

Toby has been making music since 2017 and his love of the creative process has led him to taking photos of the likes of Rupaul's Drag Race UK Queens Bimini and Black Peppa, as well as London Trans Pride Founder Lucia Blayke. Toby also directs videos and creative for other artists, “For me it’s about creating 360 worlds that combine the sonic with the visual,” explains Toby. “I’ve worked to get an understanding of the creative process as a 360 thing, and how all the elements interact. From modelling, to directing, to photography and fashion design, for me, music is the place where all of those things collide and come together.”

A refreshing mix of retro and modern influences, Toby describes his sound as “a modern British take on Neo-Soul built on a foundation of frank queer storytelling. Musically, I’d say I draw inspiration from the artists that are/were storytellers, the ones that create worlds with their music. When you listen they take you to a place, a time or a feeling. Whether it be, Bowie, Roisin Murphy, Grace Jones or Amy Winehouse - they mostly tend to be formidable women, which (shock-horror) I as a queer person have an affinity with.”

Toby’s previous supporters include the likes of Dazed, Wonderland, NOTION, The Great Escape Festival, Clash Magazine, Earmilk and GX Magazine, as well as BBC 6Music’, BBC Introducing London and Essex. Toby has already
racked up over 500,000 views for his COLORS show (with total artist streams across all platforms now at over 1.5million) and he has also previously performed in Trafalgar Sq. at Pride in London after winning the Emerging Artist competition in 2017. The talented singer-songwriter has developed from acoustic performances to now working with a full live band, playing to sold out audiences for headline shows at Servant Jazz Quarters, The Windmill (Brixton) and The Roundhouse, for Roundhouse Rising Present as part the music group, StateIsFlow. Toby Corton is also a founding member of Sounds Queer; an innovative live music showcase spanning genre, expression and identity. The events and partnerships with the like of Sofar Sounds and Brick Lane Jazz Festival champion diverse voices and sounds from the LGBTQIA+ community, whilst providing a safe space for audiences within it. 2023 will see Toby Corton continue to come into his own with more exciting new music, watch this queer space...
