Toby Lightman - Bird on a Wire Review

by Ashleigh Hill


I saw Toby Lightman in concert seconds after I knew she existed. Minutes into the engagement (I'd say performance, but she was far too welcoming to be putting on any type of show) I was mentally mapping out the quickest route to her merchandise table near the top of the venue. Lightman is the music.

The recent fruits of this type of obvious labor, Bird on a Wire, takes the enjoyment of her live shows, stuffs it into a studio and fine tunes to near perfection. There is absolutely nothing critical to say about this singer/songwriter's folk-R&B fusion or style. Well, maybe she could have stretched Bird on a Wire to include 16 tracks instead of just 13. Maybe 20. 32?

Fans of the KT Tunstall or Anna Nalick persuasion will attach themselves to Lightman's resonating vocals and instrumental integrity. They may consider building a small shrine. For those with different tastes, at least give the Etta James-esque "My Sweet Song", the electric guitar-driven "Alone" or the addictive "Don't Let Go" a try.

Seriously. Everyone should have bought Bird on a Wire five minutes ago.
