“Meet the new king of heartbreaking melody. When LA-based Tobias first uploaded his demo track ‘Just A Dream’ in August 2013, we hailed it as coming from the same school as Harry Nilsson, John Lennon and Elton John. Tender, heartfelt and true, it’s safe to say that his forthcoming debut album, ‘Goon’ will become one of the year’s most acclaimed.” – NME – 50 Brand New Artists Set To Storm 2015.
His debut album ‘Goon’ was recorded over the last two years and features production from Chet “JR” White (formerly of Girls), Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, and Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Sky Ferreira).
