After eleven years performing and teaching voice in Australia, Toni Randle returned home to New Zealand in December 2010. In her time away she completed her Masters of Music Performance in Jazz Voice (Dist.) at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and studied improvisation with esteemed, world-renowned pianist, Judy Bailey.
In recent years Toni has concentrated on writing her own music, which is a cross of contemporary, folk and pop. This lead her to co-found the band, “Eyreton Hall” with her husband and drummer, Andrew Keegan. In 2014 she won the MLT songwriting award for her song ‘Parachute’ off her 2014 album ‘Featherstitch’. Then in 2015 she was nominated for a silver scroll for “Just in case Allelujah”. Toni has performed extensively in some of Australasia’s premiere music venues such as The Wine Cellar, The Basement, Bennet’s Lane, The Northcote Social Club, The Wesley Anne, Manchester Lane and The Paris Cat.
Toni currently works at the University of Auckland teaching vocals to students in the contemporary song writing BMus course.
Before moving to Auckland mid 2012, Toni taught both the contemporary and jazz vocal streams in the degree course at the Christchurch Polytechnic and also taught at St Margarets Secondary College taking three choral ensembles.
