Toby Barrett is having a pretty good year. Not only did the Year 13 Music student come top in New Zealand in his AS Music exam, his combo won 'Best Combo' at the National Youth Jazz Competition last month, and his band (the ironically-named 'Toby and the Rest') are in the process of releasing their first album!
Toby's success caught the attention of Radio New Zealand's Concert programme, and Toby was invited into their Auckland studio in the holidays to record an interview with Mike Tipping for RNZ's 'Upbeat' programme. The interview was aired yesterday, and featured a couple of tracks from Toby & the Rest's new album.
