Produced by Andy Fraser, the album "Spirit In Me" receives critical acclaim on U.S. Promotional tour.
After receiving praise by reaching #2 on Clear Channel iHeart Radio's IN DEMAND - Discover and Uncover" top 20, (as an Artist To Watch in the Adult category), the video for the song "Brighten Up My Day" is currently reaching over 12 million households in the US.
Pop blues singer/ guitarist TOBI recently wrapped up a US summer radio tour with Rock Icon Andy Fraser to promote his debut album "Spirit In Me" while at the same time speaking on behalf of the celebrity musician driven non profit website "Artists Support Japan". While on the road they were invited to perform at Clear Channel's iHeart Radio in New York, as well as various interview appearances through out the U.S.
Although excited about the possibilities, Tobi remains humble. "I can say I have definitely had a look into what I hope will be a long successful career in music. I have also learned what has to be done to push myself, and how hard I will have to work to get there." Tobi has everything needed to be one of tomorrows major performers, with his song-writing abilities, that freedom with lyrics seen only rarely with other greats like John Mayer, or Dylan, plus his explosive virtuoso guitar playing, in the tradition of Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Hendrix, makes him a winner although still only 16 years old" Fraser further states.

Born as Tobias Earnshaw, and known simply as TOBI, he has been around the performing arts literally his whole life, joining his mother in her dance studio on a weekly basis until he was old enough to join himself. Before he could even walk, he observed an R&B street dancing class, which he has now mastered. As a student at his mother's "Susi Earnshaw Theatre School" in London he continued his training in all theories of the performing arts. Tobi was soon dancing in such venues as the London Palladium, Sadler's Wells; Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End; and the Golders Green Hippodrome and the London 02, and later found himself winning awards for his singing talents, being a regional finalist in 2009 and 2010 at London's Festival4Stars for his age group. As a child actor, his talent was quickly noticed, and soon he was being booked on a number of shows in London, which included The Quick Trick Magic Show for CITV, and later demonstrated a video game for Trbl TV Monkey TV alongside So Solid Crew.
Tobi soon discovered his passion for the guitar, which he took to as if he was born with it in his hands. Listening to such artists as Gary Moore, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn and John Mayer, he found it natural to create songs similar to his inspirations. Having received his first guitar for his 12th birthday, he formed a band with three friends calling themselves 'Wired', however members didn't practice enough for Tobi's liking, so he decided to join an older band known as 'The Warren', who rehearsed every Thursday evening at The Royal British Legion and performed gigs to raise money for local charities.
Tobi has played gigs in various London venues including: The Half Moon in Putney, The Relentless Garage in Islington and The Camden Underworld. Tobi also performs at local events including Get Loud in Libraries, Open Air Festivals; Barnet Hospital and Barnet Police Station Open Day, and is a regular performer on the Get Familyar Showcases; a youth lead organization using arts and entertainment to socially and economically unify and strengthen the next generation where performers take part in dance, music and spoken word. Tobi is one of a handful of new young acts that supported Westlife at the Battersea Evolution in aid of the Outward Bound Trust in November 2011.
