Acoustic Alchemy


 Please note, this is a BYO picnic and refreshment event

. It has been a massive six years since Toby Beard launched her last full length studio album. With just short of 450 shows, Toby also managed 15 tours of Europe, 5 mini-tours of Utah (USA), 3 tours of Canada plus shows in Darwin, Broome, Tasmania, Sydney, Byron, Brisbane etc.

She opened for the likes of The Waifs, Black Sorrow, Wallis Bird and Mick Thomas. The last six years have also been a huge journey on a personal level for Toby with many emotional highs and lows.

2021 is a new year and who knows where it will take us all. But one thing is for sure, Toby’s new album ‘What Happens To The Heart’ will help you get through it.

The ten track album covers themes of death, grief and loss.

Toby’s songwriting has become more vulnerable than it ever has before. ‘Pray For Me’ is about the Australian plebiscite which personally affected Toby and her (then, illegal) wife Amy. ‘On The Road’ would resonate with musicians worldwide who had tours ripped away from them due to Covid restrictions and travel bans. Toby sings openly about how much she misses touring with her Dutch band and the highs and lows of being on the road in such close proximity to her band mates. ‘Caroline’ and ‘Coming Home’ are bound to make you move and smile, whereas tracks like ‘Quicksand’ And ‘Let Me Cry’ will have you weeping in the first verse. ‘What Happens To The Heart’ was recorded and engineered at Rada Studios in Perth with Matt Gio. Both Matt and Toby agree that this is, by far, their best work together.

Toby’s album launches are known to be big. Big band, big songs, big energy, big crowds.

This upcoming launch will be no exception. Toby has chosen one of Perth’s best venues for the launch!

To make the night even better – you can bring your own picnic rug, low chairs, picnics and refreshments! In support is the The Little Lord Street Band. Dynamic, danceable, rocky and sometimes just a little emotional – the Perth-based band has already staked their place in the hearts of WA music lovers!


Experience the magic: Picnic at sunset and amazing acoustic talent under the stars!
