Bio

Originally from Milwaukee Wisconsin, Columbus Toy is an Atlanta Georgia based singer/performer and songwriter/vocal arranger. Columbus’ style and sound represent the warm classic feel associated with a true R&B singer. “I was about 9 years old when I first started singing in front of family members on a weekly basis”, says Columbus. Once in middle school he began making “oldie tapes,” which had a big influence on his love of music. During high school Columbus joined the school choir, which further enhanced his ability to perform in front of an audience. After completing high school, he went on to major in music at Tougaloo College in Mississippi.

Columbus has sang with several groups over the years, but could find no one with the same drive and dedication that he has. Influenced by R&B greats such as Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Fred Hammond, and Stevie Wonder, Columbus has found himself working and writing as a solo artist.

The stage has been home for Columbus, opening for acts like “Rough Ends,” “Candy” of the group “Xscape,” and “3LW.” Columbus has performed at the Rialto Theater, in Atlanta, and sang background for up-and-coming gospel artist Terri Davis at the 2003 Stellar Awards luncheon in Atlanta.

Columbus is currently working on his debut solo project with Kool Kat Records in Atlanta Georgia, and has released a single that will be on the project called “Love You Better.” He is hopeful that his album will give the industry and fans a glimpse of his creative talents.
