Toby Driver

Toby Driver is best known as the frontman and mastermind of the prolific avant-garde goth band, Kayo Dot (ex-maudlin of the Well). In the past two decades, he has masterfully explored the limitlessness of music, from weird metal to beautiful post-rock, from austere ballads to tripped-out 70s fusion and beyond. Throughout his many projects: Vaura (with Kevin Hufnagel from Gorguts), maudlin of the Well, Stern (with Chuck Stern from Time of Orchids), The Tanks (with Ches Smith and Brandon Seabrook), Clefter (with Gyan Riley and Timba Harris from Secret Chiefs 3), Tartar Lamb, Bloodmist (with Jeremiah Cymerman and Mario Diaz de Leon), his solo works, and most of all Kayo Dot, Driver’s adventurousness shines brightly. Whereas most musicians attach an identity to themselves in terms of scene or style, Driver’s music is the sound of the abandonment of identity, and the refusal to answer the question „Who are you?” Paradoxically, perhaps Driver’s defining characteristic as a composer and musician is this fearlessness of looking onto the unknown.
