In this episode, I have interviewed Toby Robinson, an Australian musician, and songwriter. Although he now is touring and doing something he totally loves, the road has been very long and it took him many years until he realised he had to one day walk away from his job and start doing what he was meant to do. Following his life path. In this episode, Toby tells us how it was to grow up in Kyneton, country Victoria with his brothers. To experience the Ash Wednesday Bushfires and be woken up one hot summer night by his mum to see everything around them being on fire. Moving to Queensland where the rain is warm, the loss of his mother, drugs and alcohol challenges, traveling to Europe to learn the banjo and meeting Carmen the flamenco dancer, to talking about his latest self-titled album Toby Robinson. Make sure you listen to the end, where Toby will play his newly released single Hold Me Close (recorded in my kitchen) 

In this episode, Toby talks about.

  • Growing up as a kid in the countryside of Victoria. Experience the tragic event Ash Wednesday Bushfires in Victoria 1983.
  • Learning to play the guitar by his dad.
  • Sneaking out as a child catching the train to Brisbane to listen to bands.
  • Moving to Ireland and totally falling in love with the Irish music.
  • How he finally broke free from alcohol and drug abuse.
  • How meditation and yoga helped him recover.
