Ever wonder why so many Australians become movie stars? One sit down with the boisterous, hunky, tall drink of water Toby Rand and you can see why-he absolutely oozes the kind of working class, tough guy charisma the Aussies are famous for.
He's also one major vocal talent. Born in 1977 in Melbourne, the youngest of four children, Toby ditched his University studies once he realized school wasn't his bag and singing was. He became lead singer for the rock group Juke Kartel and has enjoyed the success of writing music that's been used on surf videos and promotional CDs. His bands also opened for Nickelback and the Taste of Chaos Tour. Currently he's playing in an acoustic trio while he moonlights for a carpet company, which is quite fitting since Toby is wall-to-wall rock and roll charisma.
