Tobin Mueller is a composer, playwright, and interpretive pianist living in Connecticut, just outside New York City (his former home). His musical compositions range from Impressionist Jazz to modal New Age to Broadway musicals to Progressive Rock to Neo-classical ballet/symphonies. More recently, he has recorded several solo piano albums, jazz ensemble sessions, and collaborations with musicians from around the world. He moves from genre to genre with ease, drawing from varied influences and eras. His music has a restless, eclectic style that synthesizes and originates.
Six of Tobin's musical dramas have seen Manhattan stages. Several songs from his off-broadway play "Creature" have found their way into recordings offered through CDBaby, including jazz renditions from his award-winning Rain Bather. His science fiction musical "Dreamless" formed the basis of his experimental progressive rock concept album, "Audiocracy: Revolution's Son." Songs from his off-broadway "Robin Hood" and "Runners In A Dream" have been included in some of his vocal/pop albums (see below). Tobin has also written several books, poetry collections, video games, blogs and has had some success in photography.
In 1994, Tobin was inducted into the United Nations' Global 500 Roll of Honor for his work with youth worldwide in the environmental movement. He has written a series of youth musicals for his touring troupe, CenterStage Productions, most notably: To Save The Planet.
