FEATURED ACT
Toby Connor

Saturday 20th May 2017 at Aces & Eights »

Currently resident in Barcelona Toby Connor is preparing to record his third studio album ‘Zapoi’...

Connor has a chequered past including cult Manchester band 'The Paris Riots' who released a handful of singles and E.P's on independent record label 'Queen Street Records' as well as a session in L.A. with producer Johnny K.

Live Festival dates followed at Glastonbury, Hop Farmas well as three years running at Benicassim in Spain...

After the band split in 2011, Toby moved to London, where he wrote and recorded his well received debut solo album 'The Truth Of The Matter is' recorded live at Soup studios in east London. More airplay and touring followerd including two Glastonbury performances, Lubstock and even a sold out tour support for Status Quo.

Toby left London and backing band 'Volts' a year after releasing his debut album ‘The Truth Of The Matter Is’.

For 3 months he travelled through Europe performing in the street and small venues/bars, developing his sound getting lost in the most simple grass roots style of performing.

Arriving in Pais Vasco, Toby started performing in venues around Vizcaya, his soulful voice and brutally honest songs quickly attracting attention from the Bilbao music scene and radio.

Toby wrote all 12 songs that Created ‘Solo.Bas.Que.Con’ in Bermeo and recorded live in one day at ‘Gaua studios’ Mungia with Jon Asier Zebeizu and Esteban Sanchez.

‘Solo.Bas.Que.Con’ was presented at ‘Hika Ateneo’ Bilbao Friday March 13 and is now available on CD/Vinyl/Itunes/Spotify etc

We are particularly honoured and excited to host this intimate and exclusive live show here at Aces & Eights.
