Hi, I’m Isaac Toast.

I’m just getting started with this new music project and would love you to be a part of it.

It’s all a work-in-progress / cocktail of styles from Rocksteady to Retro Rock to Electronic Pop-  a portmanteau like “Barrel of A Guns of Brixton” or “The Tide is High Plains Drifter”.

Want to Join me
to be a part of this thing?

– Isaac Toast

BIO

I grew up in Berkeley, California in the seventies where I began writing and recording songs in kindergarten, goofing around with Radio Shack cassette decks. I got more serious about songwriting in the eighties, starting bands with high school friends and recording demos on 4-track tape recorders.  

After graduation, my band mates in a new wave band called the Love Drops and I moved into a warehouse in West Oakland where we practiced, recorded, and threw parties that would get busted by the cops.  With the band’s eventual breakup, I went on to form a hip hop act with Ryan Greene called Positive Free Radicals, playing and recording around the Bay Area with various musicians and groups backing us as frontmen. 

Eventually going solo, I began recording and performing under the name Cousin Isaac, using looping phrase samplers to perform live remixes of myself beatboxing, playing guitar and keys, and singing– often with the help of  DJ friends and random rappers from the audience. 

Over the next couple of decades, I bounced around between California, Hawaii, Japan and Laos, performing and recording out of a wheely bag.  It was on a trip to South Korea, where I played a show to a mostly empty room, that I was first called Isaac Toast by my host, actor Jessica Rau, in reference to the Korean sandwich chain. 

I took on the new Isaac Toast name during the Covid crisis where I realized that music was most important to me and that I needed a fresh start after a ten year hiatus from music,   Now I pretty much stay put in California with my noisy ass cats that I brought back from Laos, putting them to work in my music and social media posts.

Horse’s Mouth Single Update

Here is the final version (hopefully) of the music video for Horse’s Mouth. I have finally released the single for streaming everywhere except Spotify and Apple Music where it will drop August 5th –  Pre-Save it!

Horse's Mouth Video Preview Isaac Toast

New Version of Horse’s Mouth Music Video

Here is a new version of the music video for Horse’s Mouth. Still a work in progress, this one is in color and  a bit better synced up, though it is still petty rough. I am trying to go for that old-school lo-fi Xerox’d flier look- like when we used to go to Kinko’s and…...

New Horse’s Mouth Music Video Rough Cut

I’m starting to get excited about releasing all this new music I have been working on. And I’ve mentioned how I’ve gotten a bit hung up on getting the feel of the bass right on Horse’s Mouth which is to be my first single. I think it is to the point where I am almost…...

Horse's Mouth by Isaac Toast on SoundCloud

New Version of Horse’s Mouth

Here is a new version of Horse’s Mouth. I think this is pretty close to done. I am debating whether to send it off to be mixed and mastered elsewhere. More ears are better, but I am also on a pretty tight budget. The question is whether this sounds good enough or not. What do…...

Isaac Toast recording The Genius Said So

The Genius Said So

I’ve had this song in my head for years and never recorded it or even played it out loud until now. This is a rough draft of the work in progress. It’s about a guy who’s cult leader, or perhaps the voice in his head or perhaps even his God tells him to go and…...

I Hired Dropout Media for Marketing

I’ve  been listening to a bunch of podcasts to learn how to market my music while say, doing the dishes. Pretty much all of them say that running Facebook ads to send people to your website’s email list (and to some extent your Spotify as well) are the way to go.  I experimented with ads a…...

Video preview of Isaac Toast holding bass discussing why he is taking so long to release Horse's Mouth

Why haven’t I released my first single yet?

So… I have been hearing the baseline to Horse’s Mouth in my head for years.  And now I am  working on recording it the way I hear it in my head.  But, I haven’t played bass in years. I mean, I was never an actual bass player. Same with guitar. And piano. And drums. That…...

I Just Can’t Take it No More

Here’s another work in progress track I’ve had in my head for years and am only now recording. The lyrics sound like a cry for help but, like a lot of my songs, they really just sounded good to me. I added the last verse recently, which turned the song into being about giving up…...

Elbow Room

This is the track that got me back into doing music again after a years-long hiatus. I started recording it at the beginning of the Pandemic using Logic, to which I was new. So, it took me a while to get the hang of Logic and get back into the swing of making and writing…...

Off TV Cold Turkey

Hello, my name is Isaac Toast and I am a TV addict. Ever since I decided to make a last ditch effort to make music again, I’ve decided to completely give up TV. I’ve done this in the past a few times. When we lived in Japan we had no TV and thus I was…...

Got my new bass

My new Ibanez TMB35 Talman 5-String short neck bass arrived today.  I read the reviews so wasn’t expecting much, but wanted to try it for myself and there were very few 5 string short neck basses in my price range. Mainly, I wanted to replace the bass line in my new song “Horse’s Mouth” which…...
