                                                                              Ashley Tobias (T O B I)  born on an Army base in Arizona and raised in New Jersey,                                                                                       found her home in Astoria, Queens. She earned her BFA from Montclair State                                                                                               University and made her off-Broadway debut in Freckleface The Musical, based on the                                                                                 New York Times bestselling book by Julianne Moore. She toured internationally in the                                                                                 cast of Green Day's American Idiot, and has shared the stage with Green Day, The                                                                                         Hives, Danzig, Die Antwoord, Flogging Molly, and Linkin Park. She has provided live                                                                                       backup vocals for Rachel Platten, Andy Grammer, Gogol Bordello, Kelly Rowland and                                                                                   Her vocals can also be heard on Fox Search Light's Soundtrack to Patti Cake$.

 

T O B I currently tours with Gogol Bordello as a singer, dancer, and percussionist. She appears as a guest vocalist on "Did It All", the first track off Gogol's 2017 album Seekers and Finders. When she isn't traveling the world, she enjoys partnering with Concerts in Motion to bring music to nursing homes, soup kitchens, and hospitals.

 

T O B I eagerly anticipates the upcoming release of her debut EP Puzzle Piece, through which she shares her inspiring story of self-discovery: becoming her most authentic self, and developing her personal motto - "Be true to you".

 

In 2013, T O B I took her motto a step further and founded Be True to You: a musical, interactive anti-bullying and social emotional program that empowers kids and teens to "Take the Sting - Out of Bullying" through education and original pop/rock songs. Be True to You has performed for over 30,000 children in the Tri-State Area, received accolades from parents and teachers alike and is now signed with TheaterworksUSA, Young Audiences for Learning in CT, NJ and PA, and also works alongside Bergen Pac in NJ . 

 

For her advocacy work, T O B I was the honored recipient of Meaningful World's and United Nation's International Youth Peace Award in 2016 and in October 2019, TOBI released her program's Self-Titled DEBUT Children's Album, now available on all Streaming Platforms. 

 

Currently, due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, TOBI has recreated her once LIVE 50 minute Children's Musical, and has now quickly and successfully adapted a VIRTUAL Zoom Interactive LIVE Theater Show for kids-grades  K-6. 

 

In hopes of reaching children all across the world and spreading her program's empowering messages of hope, self-love, acceptance and discovering how to be one's truest self, she and mascot BTTY the BEE have turned to Youtube to continue to spread the " buzzzzzzzz"... Don’t forget to check their channel @beetruetoyou for fun, free & exciting content for kids and families. #musicmondays, Wild Card Wednesday's and Puppet Story-time Friday's.

 

As of April 25th 2021, TOBI received her certification in Children’s Yoga through Yo Re Mi’s 30 day Yoga Training program, in accordance with Yoga Alliance.
