Top Tones

When you play music on the street, every listener is worth their weight in gold. But it all changes when the performer has a major global hit – then listeners vie for concert tickets! Toni Watson, known as Tones and I, quickly discovered both perspectives. In early 2018, she quit her retail job and moved into a van in the Australian Byron Bay tourist resort. Her music gained so much attention, she soon found a manager and signed a record deal. In 2019, she released singles Johnny Run Away and Dance Monkey. The former was a rapid hit with local radio hosts, while the latter – musing on audience impatience with artists in the era of streaming – took the global Spotify playlist (!) by storm. This year, the trusty van may not be enough: as well as touring her native continent, Toni performs in North America and Europe. On 23 March, she visits Studio as part of the tour promoting her debut EP The Kids Are Coming, accompanied by the promising Melbourne musician Billy Davis. (Bartosz Suchecki, “Karnet”)
