In October 2013 Tobi´s new project Waterbird entered the Top 10 Itunes-Rockcharts with their track “Gotta Go”, known from the Tom Tailor TV-Spots.
In 2017 Tobi released his first solo album as “Robin and the Modest“:
With ‘Eftychia’ Robin and the Modest presents us with a truly exquisite instrumental rock album. Don’t be scared, it’s the good kind of instrumental. The kind from the 70ies, when music was able to take the time to tell a story. And by that, the debut from Robin and the Modest sneaks its complex and masterly way into our ear and subsequently into our hearts. Sounds grossly exaggerated? It should be. Albums like it are rare theses days. First-class craftsmanship and an aim for the sophisticated recipient. Typically North German without the babble. Truly the sound for every situation in life. With it, we can orchestrate our own history each and every day. Namely our own soundtrack, which we listen to in the car, when other people just go to work. It takes us away for a little time-out from our desk or keeps us in a good mood while jogging to somewhere over the rainbow. Committing Carl M. ‘Grabi’ Grabinger as a drummer, who already has been fine-tuning the groove of the Henrik Fleischlader Trio, is further proof, how comprehensive the musical selection of the project is. The Russian orchestra musician Maria Grigoriyeva played the string part in the title track and ballad ‘Little Bird’. Various other musicians hopped on board too during the writing process. ‘Eftychia’ is an overflowing cornucopia of musical gems, with which Tobi Vogel, the man behind Robin and the Modest builds an effective wall against the paralysing boredom from the consensus laboratories of the major labels.
