"Toby was great to work with because he totally understands & masters both the playing & programming sides of making rhythm tracks. His playing has a great natural feel, & he is tireless in pursuing the best sounds for a song, whether played or programmed."
Jim Abbiss (Adele, Bjork, Artic Monkeys)

"Toby has no ego, genuine enthusiasm, and serious talent...my favorite three qualities of any musician. He makes any song you're working on a breeze and he can swing like an MF."
Sam Farrar (Maroon 5, Phantom Planet, Newton Faulkner)

"Toby Couling has an infectious cheerfulness that artists, bands and musicians are drawn towards. Luckily for us, it just so happens he’s an exceptional drummer too"
(Drummer Magazine)

"Toby Couling is fast becoming a mainstay of the studio and touring world"
Ian Croft (Editor of iDrum Magazine)

"Toby is a really fun and expressive performer"
Kevin Spacey (Actor)

Day 4



Another fine day of crisp weather and light  inviting skies has just passed.

We are all getting on very well and are having a blast. Dan and I went for a great walk up a big hill (just near the studio) to a Ciarn where there is an ancient Buriel site.  It is so great to be up so high with a 360 degree view of the Irish landscape. we are situated almost in the centre of Ireland and  feels it when you can see for miles in every direction.

We are just coming to the end of another track,, It has been so interesting and creative. Trains have a great groove….(you will know what I am talking about where you hear the album)…ha!

Congratulations to the England Cricket Team. what a series!

I will try and do another BLOB tomorrow.

Here is a little photo of a guy I met in Namn.
