From age 16, Toby has travelled the world earning a reputation as a stylistically diverse musician. Growing up with the sounds of Steely Dan on stereo, and a passion for klezmer music, and a hunger to learn about Latin-American, South-American and African percussion, his knowledge base is vast.
Toby has performed, and presented drums and percussion clinics in Australasia, North and South America, and the Caribbean Islands. He travelled throughout the United States and the Caribbean Islands as a member of the internationally acclaimed dance company ‘Burn The Floor,’ was the percussionist for the Australian production of ‘Dirty Dancing,’ and has made appearances at several festivals including The Wangaratta Jazz Festival, The Melbourne Jazz Festival, and The Sydney Festival. Additionally, as an endorsee, he has represented companies both nationally and internationally at events including NAMM and The Australian Ultimate Drummers Weekend.

In addition to his performing career, Toby runs a tracking studio specifically for rhythm-section recordings, and has recorded for countless artists.
Currently, Toby is hard at work improving his craft and expanding his global reach. He is determined to consistently challenge himself as an artist, and create alongside the most inspiring musicians in the world.
Music is not one genre, one song, one instrument, and in no way a one way street for Sean DecLease. An ARIA charting Singer/Songwriter, self-taught Musician and Producer – music oozes from DecLease in all forms, resulting in diversity and to what one might call his destiny.
Growing up in a household of musicians and surrounded by all kinds of beats and sounds, DecLease could DJ as a young kid, sing as a teenager, record and produce as a young adult and has been an avid collector of vinyl well since forever.
One thing that cannot be denied from his array of talents is his voice. A blend of fresh funk and clean falsetto Declase has been most likened to Justin Timberlake, Prince and Jay Kay of Jamiroquai.
Known throughout Melbourne as “The Party Starter” Sean’s on stage energy is both infectious as it is amazing to watch – a veteran performer since the age of 15.
