Premiere: Toby Johnson releases new music video for track California

Toby Johnson’s single ‘California’ has already garnered much airplay with thanks to its inclusion in Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ and Apple Music’s ‘New Music Daily’ and it looks like he is about to further his success with today’s new music video release. 

While the title would have you believe this would be a video full of palm trees, sun and large stretches of golden beaches – the video subverts expectations and sees Toby cruising around Essex in a Ford Calypso. While Essex might not be the west coast we all imagine, the video makes it clear that sometimes you need only take a step back to realise that paradise can be all around us. 

In his own words, Toby says “The initial idea for the ‘California; video stemmed from the production team getting hold of a car rig for the camera. We met in Harlow just outside of Essex where we picked up an old Ford Calypso from a friend, strapped a ten grand camera to the bonnets, and then spent the day driving around the countryside avoiding tractors. The video is inspired by adventure and singing at the top of your lungs like nobody is watching.”

We’re proud to premiere Toby Johnson’s new music video for California.
