Toria’s words are silk javelins.
Frank explorations of self, outpourings of a joyfully pained mind.
She means it. Cos she’s lived it. I love that girl” Mike Garry
“THE LYRICAL MACHINE GUN. PUNK IN ITS PUREST FORM” MATT ABBOTT
Toria Garbutt’s unique blend of pure punk heritage and unapologetic spoken word confessions make her one of the most vital and visceral voices in the country.
Hailing from a former mining town in West Yorkshire, Toria Garbutt burst onto the scene through in summer 2014. In 2015 she featured on the ‘Ossett Observer Presents: The People’s Republic of Poetry’ tour, and also appeared at that summer’s Latitude Festival.
2016 saw the career of Toria Garbutt go from strength to strength, with the release of début album ‘Hot Plastic Moon’ via Nymphs & Thugs in May.
Toria Garbutt graced the stage at last summer’s Festival No.6, and as of early 2017, she is one of the regular tour supports for Dr John Cooper Clarke. 2017 also included at Glastonbury and Port Eliot, and 2018 has seen the release of début collection ‘The Universe and Me’ via Wrecking Ball Press.
