“Few performers in Australia can match Toni Swain...She is that good, she makes it look easy.” -
Bones Mackinnon, 3SERfm.

Fabulous rhythm and blues singer songwriter Toni Swain brings her trio to Little Creatures. Originally from Perth, Toni listened to her Dad’s trad jazz band as a young child, and danced and sang along to the vinyl collection at home—Joni, Ella, Stevie, Etta, Michael, Donny, rock n roll, country, pop, soul; an eclectic mix that influenced her song writing from the beginning. Toni wrote her first tune aged 11, then proceeded to record it using 2 cassette decks, laying down drums, piano, vocals and guitar. At 13 she was busking in Hay Street Mall, confident enough in her songs to sing them loudly to the world. A life time of live shows across the country, touring and recording followed, Toni has produced 3 albums and 3 EP’s to date. The latest album “Deepest Water” (2016) skyrocketed to number 2 on the Blues & Roots Charts on release.

Rhythms Magazine describes Toni’s music as “a glorious fusion of blues, R&B, soul and jazz…it defies categorization”. There is a sophistication in her original compositions, always delivered with style and panache, and that incredible voice! Toni is renowned for her intense, moving, live performances.

Toni brings the trio to Little Creatures, with Roy Payne on guitar (Don Walker band, Satellite V) and the Mike Rix on double bass, fine musicians handpicked from Sydney and Melbourne’s best jazz and blues players. Expect a bit of swing, r&b, a touch of jazz, blues, and a whole lotta soul.
