      Bio

      Theres a music biz truism that says an artist has her whole life to write her first album and six months to write her second. What that statement fails to take into account are maturation and inspirationtwo elements present in abundance throughout Bird on a Wire, on Atlantic Records, the surprising second album from New York-based writer/artist Toby Lightman. With 13 songs running the gamut from the Rufus-style funk-pop of Round and Round and the shimmering old-school R&B of Slipping to the moving lullaby Better and the modern-day torch song Weight of the World, the album documents an uncommonly gifted young artist in the act of becoming fully herself.

      Lightman couldn’t wait to bring these revelations to bear on her own writing, but she knew herself well enough not to force the issue. “I let it happen naturally,” she says, “because when you think too much about it, you tend to become too purposeful in the message. Going back to my first record, I’ve wanted to be truthful in my writing. I don’t write party songs; every song I write comes out of a real experience.”

      Little Things got its share of acclaim and established Lightman as a newcomer worth watching. But few realized the breadth and depth of her talent. That will likely change when people experience Bird on a Wire. Lightman titled the album after a 1969 LP of the same name by her late uncle, who encouraged her and offered sage advice after she’d decided to make music her career, at a time when everyone else was waiting for her to come to her senses. Fortunately for the rest of us, she never did.
