Cleveland born, Tobi D'Amore has been playing music since he was a little guy. He moved to New York City and submerged himself in the unparalleled art scene. In 2006 Tobi found the local music scene to be what he had been looking for all along. Playing with multiple bands (Bass, Guitar, Vocals, Trumpet) he began taking a more serious interest in writing his own music. By 2008 he was playing solo shows around Brooklyn and the Lower East Side. 

After the recording of his first album where he played nearly all of the parts in every track, Tobi began the search for a full-time band and founded the Bone Chimes in 2010.

Having played some of the most iconic venues in NYC (Gramercy Theatre, Irving Plaza, Rough Trade, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Arlene's Grocery, Pianos) TBC saw fair success in the big city.

In 2015 Tobi decided to hit the road on his first solo tour, The High Line Tour, across the U.S. Armed with tenacity and his new RV (The Bill Murray Time Machine) Tobi logged 10,000 miles and 22 shows. With the minor success of this tour he began planning his next adventure.

In September of 2017 Tobi decided it was time to get out on the road full time and packed everything he felt like he would need into Bill and moved out of NYC. Now, nearly 2 years later, Tobi has logged 60,000 miles, 43 states, 100's of performances and many new friends. 

Playing his own music as well as classic covers by some of music's greats Tobi is available for booking NOW!

"Incorporating aspects of orchestral indie rock, as well as a more minimal pop aesthetic, the band balances between stark, gorgeous arrangements and something of a far more dense nature."
