With 11 million albums sold and 5 Grammy Awards to his credit,
TobyMac refuses to settle on past accomplishments, as he
delivers a diverse album built on honest struggle. He remains
passionate about his desire to write songs at the intersection
where life and spirituality collide. He calls his new album,
"Eye On It", which he calls a complete labor of love.
From his early days in influential group dcTalk to his very first solo album, "Momentum", Toby has worked hard to inspire his audience with words of conviction, hope, empowerment and the redemption found in his faith in God. He furthers that vision on the thrilling "Eye On It", produced by Toby, Christopher Stevens, David Garcia and Jamie Moore.
"What is it like to live a life of faith? It doesn't look perfect, I can promise you that," Toby admits. "We're all struggling. We're struggling to mend relationships, to love people well, and to love God. But the gift of walking this life of faith is that you can make it right each day. YOu can turn and start over, determined, with your eye on it."
The follow-up to 2010's "Tonight" (which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200), "Eye On It" is an elevating collection of 12 tracks, all of them written or co-written by Toby - and many of them deeply personal.
The album's first single, "Me Without You" looks at the importance of God in one's life. Toby wrote the song from the perspective of who he might be without his faith, instead of who he is because of it. The result is an inspired bit of songwriting. "I'd be a mess." he says with a self-depreciating laugh. "I'd be insecure, self indulgent and probably doing all the wronmg things."
"Made For Me" chronicles the love-at-first-sight courtship of Toby and his wife Amanda, driven by a passionate but poopy vocal and a jangly beat. "I stand in awe that I have this amazing woman as my wife."
