Over the past few months, many of you have emailed me asking me to re-post tracks from my previously collections since they are no longer available. Well, I heard you! So to start off the New Year right, I’ve posted all my past collections at once. However, they will only be available for a couple of weeks. Check them out on the T Killa’s Workshop page or click here. Happy New Year Everyone!!!
I hope you all have a fabulous holiday and look forward to next year, lucky 2013! I have a feeling it’s gonna be a good one!
FOR YOUR HOLIDAY LISTENING PLEASURE, I HAVE REPOSTED THE SNOW DAY EP!

Hey everyone! Due to illness, Toby will have to reschedule tomorrow’s StageIt concert. You will all get refunds. Stay tuned for more information!
I am so excited to announce my first online show through Stage It! For those of you who don’t know, Stage It is an online venue that allows musicians to stream LIVE, super intimate concerts often from their homes, or in my case, my NYC apartment. It’s a great platform for me to finally play for so many of you who I haven’t seen in a while. I have missed you all so much and am so looking forward to playing for you again!
Aside from playing for all of you amazing people, the inspiration for this show is the victims of Hurricane Sandy. As a New Yorker, I want to do my part for my amazing city and home for the past 13 years. Living uptown, I was out of harm’s way, but so many of my native New Yorkers lost so much. Let’s help them out by giving what you can! It all helps!
Coming to this show is as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Simply click on the link below and click to purchase a ticket. Set up an account and purchase credits, or what Stage It calls “Notes” (10 Notes = $1.00) (Purchase additional notes if you wanna give me a tip for being AWESOME! or to spend attending other shows in the future!)
2. Then come 8pm on Nov. 18, grab a drink from the fridge, log into your stage it account.
3. Enjoy the show!
I will be there performing LIVE from my living room. Welcome to my home!

Hello fellow people. I wanted to just send out a note to say that I hope you are all safe and unharmed from Sandy’s wrath. I know a lot of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn friends who are still without power and my heart goes out to them. Along with all who live on Staten Island, New Jersey and every other area that have been devastated by this storm. Love to you all!!
A Handy List of Things you can do without power:
Read a book
Write a book
Knit a sweater
Play Gin rummy
Bake (If you have a gas stove)
Tic tac Toe
Hey kids! You guessed it.. I got hitched! Tied the knot. Took the plunge. Jumped the broom. Hooked up the ball and chain. I can’t think of any others.. It was a magical weekend and I’ll post pics as soon as I can organize the mass amounts of photos taken by friends and fam… So by early next year..
In the meantime, it’s onward and upward. Gotta get this new album off the ground. Folks, I’m gonna be real.. This is my best album yet. I’m so excited about it, I could pee myself. There will be no hurdles in my way, I’m making it my ‘thirdlife’ goal to get as many peeps to hear it as I can. So let’s make a pact.. Let’s do this together.. Koombaya. I’ve got some ideas that I’m gonna throw at you over the next few weeks and I hope you’re down to go down this road together. I have the greatest fans and I know with your help, we can take over the world. So as a married lady, I say, Let’s get back to basics! Let good music prevail!
I have two shows coming up (with more to come I hope!) and I’d love to see you there. I’ve worked hard at putting together a kickass band and I think you’ll be very happy with the outcome. So come on down to the Price is Right! This is the showcase showdown! (it’s late…)
The new album is done, tomorrow the T Killa collection is coming down and on Saturday, I will become a Mrs!!
I am excited to announce that after a year and a half of blissful engagement and arduous wedding planning, I will be married. I hope you all have a great weekend, I know I will! I will try and post pictures for you guys to see at a later date. Wish me luck and dance a little jig for sun!!
Toby Lightman (Milano!)

A couple of years ago, I did a cover of “Nobody Does it Better” by Marvin Hamlish.. I am saddened by his recent passing and wanted you all to hear my version of his amazing song. Truly a great writer.. I don’t know any little girl who doesn’t know “5,6,7,8!”
Take a listen here:
This song will also be part of my newest T Killa Collection WISH IT WAS ME. I asked you all for your opinions a while back on what songs to cover and this is what I came up with. So in the midst of working on my new record, (which is finally finished by the way!!!!, we are working on how and when to release it), I pulled this collection together.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with T Killa’s Workshop, this is a project that I started 3 years ago. I started writing and recording quite a bit of music for film and tv usages.. These songs are not on any of my albums, so this was a way for you all, my peeps, to hear these little side projects. Whether the song got placed or not, they are posted in collections for your listening and downloading pleasure. I also write a little blurb about each song, so you can know who I wrote it and/or recorded it with, and a little about what film or tv show I did it for. Hence T Killa’s Workshop. Just picture a little wizard crafting songs out of cookie dough in a treehouse…wait that’s Keebler.. I digress..
So you know what this means, Collection Volume 5, Hays for Days is coming down! Labor Day, I will be pulling it off my site in preparation for the new one. So get it while you can!!!
