This is Toby Wainwright Johns` finest hour to date! A mini album brimming with all of the intensity and emotion expected from Toby. This record also incorporates new, challenging dynamics and explores territories that have been left unopened previously.. A true Pandoras box that will delve into the furthest reaches of the psyche.. Light and dark, Tragedy and comedy and beyond! Melodies that weave in and out of the consciousness, embedding themselves deep within your soul! This is definitely not new age. This is age old and primitive. Strange yet familiar... The theatre, the circus, within your own mind.. Incomparable!

Toby`s studio work is a triumph of his song-writing ability, and showcases his creative passion and uniqueness. As a live performer he is able to convey strong messages and raw emotion to the audience through the sheer beauty and disturbing nature of his music.
Comparisons have been made with artists and genres as wide ranging as Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, Gypsy music, Classical, Folk, Tango and many more. However Toby`s true originality shines through and comparisons are short lived. His music is from the heart and therefore must be heard to be fully appreciated. For what it is… Outside of pigeon holes and free of restraint!
