Toni Watson, known professionally as Tones and I, is an Australian singer-songwriter. Originally from Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I journeyed to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street, so Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for the year.
Tones is having a massive breakout year in 2019 that started with her debut single ‘Johnny Run Away’ releasing on March 1, followed by what’s become a huge global hit - 'Dance Monkey'. The track has reached #1 on official singles charts in 11 countries, amassed hundreds of millions of streams and Tones now holds the record for the longest consecutive #1 for an Australian artist on the ARIA single chart.
Recently Tones broke records for the biggest crowd of an opening act at Splendour In the Grass festival with 20,000 punters coming to watch her midday set. Headline shows are selling out around the world with sold out tours in EU/UK and Australia.
