“The whole project oozes spirituality, if not outright womanly sensuality…” -BILLBOARD

“Lightman’s dusky vocals and earthy, groovy vibe invite comparisons to Joan Osborne and Sheryl Crow” -USA TODAY

“no small talent… Toby Lightman continues to shine a light on her knack for making rich, soulful pop” -PEOPLE

From releasing her first two records, Little Things (2004) and Bird on a Wire (2006) on Atlantic Records, to releasing four independent records on her own T Killa Records, Toby Lightman is self-producing her fifth album titled “Spaces”. Inspired by her idol Prince, who’s known for playing all instruments on his productions, Lightman is playing each instrument as well as producing and mixing this album in it’s entirety.

Toby has performed on various National TV shows such as Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, NBC's Today Show, and CBS' Second Cup. She has toured with renowned artists such as Rob Thomas, Jewel, James Blunt, Gavin DeGraw, Train, Marc Cohn, Lilith Fair 2010 and on one memorable evening, Prince.

Since becoming an independent artist, it has seemed as though her career has really blossomed through much success with film and TV placements including "Everyday" on Fox's BONES, "Holding a Heart” on WB's ONE TREE HILL, VAMPIRE DIARIES, 90210 as well as the feature film WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER?, "Let Go" as the HSN commercial theme song, "Snow Day" as the KMart commercial theme song, "Addicted" which aired in the commercial for ABC's DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES series finale as well as the trailer for the movie PLAYING FOR KEEPS, and most recently, Toby’s song “We Are” was featured in the re-launch demo for the new Microsoft BING software! There are just too many other placements to mention in this tiny blip. Excited about what lies ahead, Toby is now busier than ever finalizing her newest record, which is due for release later in 2018. First single “Spaces” will be released Feb 1, 2018.
