Hi my name is Toby Lee and I’m a Year 6 pupil at Crackley Hall School in Kenilworth UK.
Like most boys my age I like to play with cars, jump in water and get really muddy!
But my real passion is the guitar and let’s just say, I play it a lot.
I had a busy year as a ten-year-old: Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show, Sessions for the BBC, featured on an Under the Apple Tree Session for Bob Harris, appeared on TFI Friday twice, flew to Memphis and played at BB King’s Blues Club. I have made 8 tuition videos for Epiphone – teaching children how to play the Blues. I’m an official artist for Gibson and for Hamstead Amps and I even have a Onesie clothing line!! I made a tribute video for the late BB King and it has been viewed 50 million times!!!
It was my dream to make an album while I was still 10. So after I had been a guest on stage with British Blues star Laurence Jones, I told him and he offered to produce it! We created an awesome studio band with top names and even Whitesnake legend Bernie Marsden agreed to guest on one track!
We all met up at Christmas at Woodworm Studios in Oxfordshire and for six long days we created my first EP. I wrote 2 songs with the help of Laurence and the other 3 tracks are blues covers. It was just incredible and I am so pleased with the result.
I hope you like it too!
Obviously I had to call it TEN! And it’s available on iTunes, Amazon, on CD and very shortly on limited edition 12” Gatefold Vinyl!
