In The Spotlight

Toine – “I Can’t Take It Back”

Based in The Hague, this self-made Dutch artist is both a singer and songwriter as a virtuoso blues/jazz guitarist. Although music always had a pull on him, it was hearing “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix which fueled his passion. Since he’s played in several bands, including his dad’s band Big Dutch. He entered the TV show “The Best Singer-Songwriter” and supported Robben Ford and Matt Schofield.

Driven by a fierce, funkalicious rhythm, his debut single instantly introduces him as an aural force to be reckoned with. Enhancing the infectious beat, it’s the incandescent synths that take the melody from a mellow layer to an invigorating electronic brass solo. And with added funky guitars and sleek vocals singing the genuine lyrics about a complex relationship, this tune is mesmerizing and fresh.
