My name is Paul Toshner (Baby Tosh)
Dads nickname was Tosh…
In terms of my journey in my song pool selections I gravitated through no coincidence to the
Jewish songwriters, including many who wrote for Sinatra. I can almost tell when a song was written by a Yid. I don’t play Jewish music per say but perform live looping piano vocal
interpretations and sing alongs of the many 1970’s & 1980's NY ones, see lists on my web site.
What I feel are my most important accomplishments however as an artist are perhaps not what you want to hear. But perhaps they are. I have developed over the years systems for running every bespoke show to accommodate a necessary variety in style and content. It pools from a set of sources dependent on the situation and affords a balance of the artistic, as well as entertainment. My equipment also has been refined to provide for a deeply intimate un compromised platform for as best an experience for all. Taken totally for granted but sorely missed if missing.
I have had residencies and performed all over the world. My choice to come to America was because all the US tourists really knew my repertoire and had a deeper warmer appreciation than anyone else. Many stories to hi-light.
The best thing anyone ever said was “I think I’ve listened to that song a hundred times but thats the first time I’ve ever actually heard it”.
I write songs too that are BH’ received and sung along with, see on the web site.
I love a sweet and juicy grand piano and am always surprised how it has a wizardry to it. I love my RC300 live looping pedal, and some honky tonk and boogy playing.
But in the end to feel useful, to offer something that people long for, that is simply marvelous BH’
Your humbled servant and entertainer
Thank you for listening
