Australian folktronic artist Tobias and 2016 Toyota Star Maker winner Karin Pageare excited to announce they have teamed upand will be taking their music out on the road for an East Coast tour, kicking off in April. A mutual love and respect for Australian music and their audiences has motivated these two celebrated artists to join forces and meet the Australian live audiences head on.
As fortuitous as meetings go, Tobias and Karin met at the 2017 Tamworth Country Music Festival, where they were not only sharing a stage, but also discovered they were both holding a Top 5 position on the AMRAP charts for their latest singles. “I met Tobias at The Tamworth Country Music Festival in January. I first discovered his music when we were both sitting in the Top 5 of the AMRAP charts. I instantly loved his style and thought our music would work well together on the road”, says Karin.
Tobias and Karin Page will be kicking off their tour in Karin’s adopted home state of NSW on 28th April and will be making their way through a host of venues including small halls and house concerts, ending the tour in Tobias’ home state of QLD. “One thing I love about performing music in Australia is connecting with the communities I travel to. I think both my music and Karin’s will really resonate with audiences we will be performing for. It’s also really exciting to team up with a like-minded artist such as Karin Page for these tour dates I believe the stronger the music community is around you, the better the experience is, benefitting the connection to audiences and performance as a whole”, says Tobias.
Both Tobias and Karin have enjoyed much success having various singles receiving national airplay on Australian radio, along with performing at festivals throughout Australia, and sharing the stage with some of the country’s biggest names.

Hey Folks, here is my latest single ‘City Walk’ taken from my second album ‘Alive’. I wrote this while on tour last year visiting my old home town of Brisbane. Riding the City Cat late at night with friends, a lot of memories came back about living in West End.
Sitting on the front steps of an old run down Queenslander share-house, drinking some cheap wine and watching the night unfold on the street through a haze of debauchery.
The Cure, The Go-Betweens and The Smiths always frequenting the record player. In retrospect its a romantic view of artistic poverty, the reality however is never pretty.
I wanted the song to capture this feeling and I think it has. All thanks to a stella performance on drums by Craig Hadlow, Keys by Rob Kidd, Tearnu Graham on Bass and Nick Huggins (of ‘A pocket full of stones studio’) production, who always meets an idea with such creativity.
Hope you like it
