Discovery: Toby Johnson

Toby Johnson is a British singer-songwriter, with Isla being his latest folk tune to be released.

By Jane Howkins

It’s a pretty folk track, being more along the lines of the new folk movement than the traditional style of the genre. This may put some off, but we really hope that it doesn’t, as Johnson is extremely talented, and has a fantastic ear for melody. Isla is a fairly simple song (it’s just Johnson and his acoustic guitar), but a track this good doesn’t need to be complicated, and we really enjoyed it.
