TolbertToz

From the world of 24 track reel to reel recordings, huge studios, leather and lace, CBGB’s and the Village Voice being a musician’s bible; it is a sheer juxtaposition that Joy Tolbert and Tim Toz met through the internet.

Finding each other by chance on Soundcloud and embracing the digitally streaming music that they individually made and uploaded, the pair soon realized that they could make music together even though they were 150 miles apart.

Joy heard one of Tim’s instrumental songs and wanted to put a melody and words to it. “Tim was okay with the idea, but I could tell that he wasn’t sure what might come out of this” says Joy.

When she sent the tune back to him with her ideas, Tim was happily surprised. Life Rolls By was the first song of many songs that they have collaborated on. For the first 6 months, the team had never met although they had written about 12 songs together.

“Working at a distance has its advantages and disadvantages”, says Joy. “Tim worked out the arrangements playing all the instruments and I recorded scratch vocals on my iPhone to work out the parts.” "Seems simple enough", Tim says, "but there's a good amount of volley back and forth to get to the final versions.”

The team knew that ultimately they would need to come together to record the real vocals. "I kept thinking I would just get some remote recording rig to take up to Joy's place. But the reality was I had a rig I could take now. So that's what we did.” said Tim.

The process seems to work well for the Joy and Tim. They keep churning out great songs. Although at the beginning, they yearned for a more organic approach to writing, the team soon realized that this crazy way that they are producing music is working just fine.

And so they continue as TolbertToz

Niko Gamet   

Self-taught musician, Niko Gamet, a songwriter, composer, singer, arrived in the business late in his life (he was 23 years old) and his passion for melodies, which started 15 years back, continues to bewitch him.
The snap came from a conversation with famous Krishou Monthieux (FFF drummer) who encouraged him to go his own way.
Soon, creative bulimia seized him, in the energy of Rock Music. He shut himself up in a free spirit shack for nearly 2 years, alongside 2 groups of the Rhône Alpes region, then created a power trio (Mok) for which he played drums. They were signed by Hacienda Studio Label which produced 2 albums (Mauvais Présage and l'Envers du Décor), with more than 200 concerts as a result.
At the same time he asserts himself as a studio musician, alongside many artists (Nicolas Nourrit, Elisel, Sorel). This experience nourished by happiness and... hops!! allowed him to play with famous artists (Nada Surf, Richie Haven, John Butler Trio, Luke, Deportivo, Mei Tei Show, Blankass, Dyonysos...) in many prestigious venues (Francofolies, Olympia, Ancien Théâtre de Vienne, and Fourvière).
Further to this frenetic period, Niko Gamet decided to immerse himself in a more personal project. With his acolyte arranger Edouard Coquard, he prepared his new album, Le Signe du Coeur. Fed by English Pop Music and American Folk songs, this album is in direct resonance with his first emotions, when listening to the Beatles, Beach Boys, James Taylor, Tom Waits and the likes...
The album was received favourably with numerous Playlists in various media, some very important and, over all, many concerts in 2014 and 2015 (over 60 of them, in particular at Les 3 Baudets, Transbordeur, Radiant), proving that this personal experience would extend further on, alongside the Collective Ginger Moon, for which he co-writes, and the birth of this unreleased album (written in the language of Shakespeare), entitled "Leaving Tomorrow" (available end of February in Germany and early Spring in France).
Today, Niko Gamet composes and acts as arranger for other artists (Joris, Monsieur Timide, Ginger Moon), still plays with Rock groups !! ( Lord Ruby ) and prepares a "concept" album in English and French, which is due mid 2017.
