"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"

My favourite shape is a circle, which is lucky as I look at those shapes most days for hours on end – when I’m sat behind a drum kit. Some of circles that I hit from time to time are a shiny golden colour. These wonderfully unique hand made slices of magic when hit sound absolutely amazing! They elevate my sound when playing live or in a studio recording session.
