Artist Q&A

Q&A with Toby Lightman


What was the first concert you attended?Madonna on her Like a Virgin tour... I think I was 13 HA, not appropriate

Where and when was the first show you played?  I don't have a picture, thank god, but my first show was probably at the Borders book store in my hometown of Cherry Hill NJ, next was a bagel shop and we always joked that the next stop was the frozen food section of the supermarket.

If you could open for any artist in the next year, who would it be? Hozier.. I feel like he's the male me and we need to do a duet

What 3 artists have you listened to obsessively in the last month? Hozier, Tove Lo and Phantogram

What did you want to be when you were growing up? A judge.. I wanted to call the shots

What is your most embarrassing moment? Not telling:)

What is your favorite phrase? Oh boy

Cat person, dog person, or both?  Grew up with a cat that I LOVED and was terrified of dogs, now I love dogs and am TERRIFIED of cats

What would most people be surprised to learn about you? I'm pretty kick ass at pool, so much that my old manager bought me my own cue..
