In the summer of 2018 Toni Watson takes a two-week vacation from the shop she works in in Melbourne. She buys a second-hand van and drives to the popular Australian coastal resort of Byron Bay with just her plastic keyboard and her songs. Where she makes a big impact as a busker. Legend has it that the police have to attend to control the massive crowd. It doesn't go unnoticed. Toni gets a recording contract. In the space of a few months her second single ‘Dance monkey’ (2019) lifts her - as Tones and I - from the streets to the stratosphere. It's Australia's longest number 1 on record since the charts began in 1974. The story won't end there. Infectious singles like ‘‘Never seen the rain’ and ‘The kids are coming’ show that Watson has every right to aim high.
