And there are none more thrilled than Toby. This support comes off the back of his stunning July release Love’s Shadow, of which The Go-Betweens’ 16 Lovers Lane was a touchstone whilst recording the album.
Toby said “I have had intense love affairs with several of his albums – solo and with the Go-Betweens. Right now, I can’t stop listening to Danger In The Past. There have been others. There will be more”.
Forster is returning to the gig circuit with Martin after a 2 year hiatus. The solo show will be sure to present a delicious cross-section of his acclaimed catalogue: old, recent, borrowed, and new.
“Solo Robert is a great thing. A couple of years ago I saw him do a solo set of ‘Sydney songs’ at the Wharf Theatre. Amazing. These shows will be something. I am lucky to be a part of it.”
Obviously this is a big deal for Toby. Here is his once in a lifetime opportunity to tour Love’s Shadow with the man who helped shape the album and been a musical inspiration for years.

“Love’s Shadow is a proudly Australian album, void of nationalistic pride but revelling in the landscape and its people. It’s also a very strong introduction to Toby Martin as a solo artist” Time Off
