We’ve been hard at work on a new album. There. So you’ve been asking about it and we’ve been coy about it. And there’s a reason we’ve been keeping things on the down-low, and that’s simply because we don’t want to talk about something until it’s well underway and inevitable. That changes today because, well, it is now WELL underway and inevitable. Along with everyone else on the planet, our plans for 2020 and 2021 were a bit… steamrolled. We are now back on track and for the last few months have resumed working in the studio after a year apart from one another, both remotely and in-person, on what will be our next album. This is simply a proof of life post, with some photos to prove that all of the SM gentlemen are alive and being kept busy in the studio. Hydration and food rations are being provided when absolutely necessary. We won’t have anything to share with your earballs for a bit, but we’re on course to release this behemoth of a record sometime in 2022. We will sporadically provide updates now and then, but we want all of you faithful and kind (and PATIENT) Streetlight fans to know we are hard at work and hope to exceed your expectations with a new batch of jams soon.
ONE FINAL SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 2021, TOH KAY ACCOMPANIED BY AN ORCHESTRA IN LOS ANGELES.

"Sometimes, I play shows entirely alone. And that’s all fine and dandy, it makes for a nice relaxed, loose show. I get to travel alone and wander to unique places on planet earth I wouldn’t have visited otherwise. I get to sip on something fermented and play more or less what I want, as if I was home, enjoying my guitar and a hang with friends. Oftentimes, I play with the two fine gentlemen that make up the other two thirds of my little acoustic trio. This is even better, musically and as a concert experience, in my opinion. This has become the standard for Toh Kay performances in recent times, and it’s a perfect balance of laid back and organized, multifaceted music. Occasionally, the trio is joined by a guest musician or a small ensemble of, for example, strings, and these shows are even more special and unique and complicated and rewarding, both for us up on the stage and, hopefully and presumably, for you guys, on the other side of the stage’s edge. Today, it is with almost uncontainable joy and excitement that I get to announce a new flavor of the Toh Kay Family of Organized Noises: Toh Kay With A (Frigging) Orchestra. On October 15th 2021, the Toh Kay trio will be joined on the Ace Theatre stage by a 20 piece chamber orchestra, for a concert that takes the songs we play regularly, along with some curve balls, to crazy new places. This will likely be a one time thing, unless there’s a winning lottery ticket or a wealthy benefactor in my future, so please come on out and experience it with us. Thanks for reading, for supporting all my crazy projects, and most importantly, for listening all these years. See you all at the shows!"
