A songwriter, performer and arranger of great skill and musicality, Toni Randle is one of Australasia's most highly regarded contemporary vocalists.

Prior to her recent move to Auckland she taught both jazz and contemporary voice, and lyric writing at The Christchurch Polytechnic and also taught, conducted and arranged for three choral ensembles at St Margaret’s College. During her time as a professional artist, Toni has also been privileged to play and study with some of New Zealand and Australia’s most prominent Jazz and Contemporary artists, such as, Judy Bailey, Mike Nock, Stu Buchanan, Doug Caldwell, Gerard Masters, Brett Hirst, James Muller, Dave Goodman, Paul MacNamara, Sean Wayland, Frank De Sario, Ben Hauptman, Shelley Rosenberg and Bob Sedergreen to name but a few.
