Toli Morilla is one of the most influential singer-songwriters and performers of contemporary Asturian music. His “folk&roll” music is a melting pot of worldwide genres. He sings in both Asturian and Spanish, often using texts written by the poets of his homeland.
His new album "Ten Bob Dylan songs in the asturian language" was released in 2009. It wons the Best 2009 Asturian SingerSong Writer Cover Album Award.
Toli has been involved in music for many years and has worked on many artistic projects.
His first solo album, “Nunca des la espalda” (Keep your back against the wall/Never let an opportunity pass you by) was released in 1998 and soon established him as one of Asturias’ finest singer songwriters.
In 1999, Toli not only co-wrote but also arranged the hugely successful album “Tierra de nadie” (No Man's Land) by the world famous piper “HEVIA”. He also worked on Hevia's second CD “Al otro lado” (On the Other Side) in 2001.
In 2003 Toli released his second solo album, “Entre el barro y las preguntas” (Between Mud and Questions) which included two Spanish language covers of Bob Dylan songs, personally approved by Dylan himself.
“Nueche D’Insomniu” (Night of Insomnia) was recorded in an ultra intimate studio environment and released in 2004. This extraordinary album has undoubtedly drawn the most critical acclaim and shows Toli's innate sense of theatricality and performance. He has developed a collection of outstanding songs, using ancient texts and poems performed in the Asturian language. A live theatre performance of “Nueche d’insomniu” was also released as a CD-Book.
An exciting development of his many styles and influences, “Entropia” 2007, his fifth album, is destined to be his most successful album yet. It wons the Best 2007 Asturian Song Award for "Azul y gris"
