Loves Shadow CD

Toby Martin


Love's Shadow is the debut solo album from Toby Martin. Over the course of 10 years and four albums in rock band Youth Group, the singer and songwriter sometimes experimented with what might be termed 'character' songs: the interior thoughts of impressionistically-sketched protagonists. Toby's first solo outing provided an opportunity to foreground this aspect of his writing. Love’s Shadow was co-produced and engineered by Toby's long-time friend, Youth Group collaborator and musical genie Tim Kevin, who also did many of the string arrangements that lift the songs. Sparse use of drums, piano, acoustic guitar and double bass flesh out the stories and the result is melancholy, sometimes sinister, sometimes darkly humorous, but never depressing.
