Toby Barelli

Toby Barelli

King Size Slim is Toby Barelli - an explosive roots and blues guitarist moulding traditional standards and soring own compositions with explosive musicianship and a unique vocal attack.

Following the release of his new live album, King Size Slim is now touring with a new band as well as continuing his work as a solo performer.

Fat Roots Boogie - A fat boogie style and sound delivered live and direct. This music, percussive and dynamic in its nature, melodic and soulful in its heart, shouts loud and kisses sweet. A potent combination of guitars, percussion and vocal performed with passion and belief.

So where's that all from?

With one of the busiest gig diaries on any music circuit, Brighton based Toby Barelli, has built a reputation as an extremely powerful performer, immensely engaging, entertaining audiences and challenging their perceptions of modern roots and blues.

Toby was performing regularly with local bands at the age of 14, sitting in with anyone who would let him, style or genre didn't matter, he just wanted to play.

His tenacity paid off and shortly after leaving school Toby got his first professional work. Later Toby was invited to join the Two Tone legends "The Selecter". This led to four years of worldwide touring with many Ska and Reggae heroes, some influences of which can still be heard in Toby's music today.

Performing around 150 solo shows a year, and in the wake of his debut solo album, Toby has become a "must see" act on the alternative blues circuit as well as at established venues and festivals around the country.
