Toby Jepson: Announces Solo Acoustic/Spoken Word Tour

Returning to the stage as an acoustic artist throughout this May and June, Toby Jepson is set to bring stories of a ‘lifer’ in the music business to a venue near you, along with a retrospective run through the songs that have made him an enduring character of the UK rock scene for over 35 years.

Applauded for his lockdown ‘Digital Busker’ Facebook shows, broadcast live and free from his kitchen throughout the pandemic, Toby will be bringing his legendary energy and along with partner in crime Dave Kemp in what promises to be a night not to be missed!

Born in Lincoln, raised in Yorkshire, Toby started his professional career in the rock band ‘Little Angels,’ formed in Scarborough in 1986. The band released three acclaimed albums on Polydor Records; the last one, ‘JAM,’ became a number one album in the UK album charts in 1993. The band enjoyed 10 top 40 hit singles in the UK, as well as chart success all over the world, and embarked on extensive touring as a headline act as well as opening for artists such as Bon Jovi, Van Halen, Marillion, Gun n Roses, Bryan Adams, and ZZ Top. The band bowed out in style at a sell-out concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 1994.

Since 1995, Toby has toured as a solo artist as well as a singer for hire with bands Fastway, GUN, and Dio’s Disciples. His most recent musical adventure has been the rock band ‘Wayward Sons,’ who have released three critically acclaimed records through Frontiers Music and have toured with UFO, Steel Panther, Saxon, Living Colour, as well as headlining tours of their own. In 2022, the band opened the main stage at Download Festival and is set to play festivals in 2024.

Aside from being a successful writer/performer, Toby is a record producer, runs an independent film company, is a screenwriter, and a radio presenter on Planet Rock Radio.
