Although Exeter based singer-songwriter Tobias ben Jacob has been a musician for a number of years, first with The Roots Union and then as a duo with Lukas Drinkwater, 'A Polyphonic Life' is his debut solo album. Tobias always had the reputation as a wonderful singer-songwriter and this super new album is going to further enhance his growing reputation. It features songs from his two EP's released with Lukas, as well as new material written especially for the album.

To bring the album to life Tobias has recruited an amazing team of musicians to join him including co-producer John Elliott (The Little Unsaid), duo partner Lukas Drinkwater, Phillip Henry (Edgelarks), Emily Barker, Tim Heymerdinger, Alastair Caplin, Jess McAllister and Andy Watts.
