Toby Marks has done it all. The man started off with a cassette and a lot of love for music, getting his start as a guitarist performing Beatles cover songs in locations around the world. The trip he has taken since then is impressive to say the least. Often lumped into the unfortunate category of "ethnic music," Banco de Gaia is a much more involved project, incorporating vocals, traditional instruments, but also a solid foundation in the world of electronic dance music. Breaks, techno, ambient, emotional soundscapes... whatever the style may be, Toby can do it with ease, and is one of my personal favorite artists. Highly recommended.
