Toby Pipes

With more than two decades of experience in the music industry, Toby Pipes brings a wealth of technical expertise and musical sensibility to every recording session.

He’s a master at making musicians feel comfortable in the studio and can coax the best performances from players and vocalists. He’s also skilled at optimizing arrangements and consulting on song structures.

Despite his Platinum-certified success as a writer, guitar player and vocalist with international hit-makers Deep Blue Something, Toby is personable, professional and engaging and is happy to work with developing artists as well as established acts.
