Joshua Toala (pka Tee-Wyla), has composed numerous works for television, and commercials, many of which have been found on prime time programs for networks such as NBC,CBS, ABC, ESPN, VH1, BET, MTV, Radio 1 programming, and other major cable networks. Since 2002, Joshua has regularly accepted commissions for and scored music for independent film, and production companies, landing him frequent submissions for sitcoms, and database work with creative services for Viacom. While he has never formally studied music composition, he credits his curiosity and for all music and his love for God as being pivotal to his success as a composer and music producer. His most notable works include music appearing throughout the NBA Finals, The 2016 Olympics, UEFA CUP, World Cup, and several BET Award shows.
In addition to his successful licensing career, Joshua spends his time working as a hip-hop producer / instrumentalist under the name Tee-Wyla, releasing several instrumental projects, and is always finding ways to collaborate with other artists in every genre. His musical style varies from acoustic music, to classical string arrangements, interactive-sound installations, and literally everything in between, and while his musical influences are deeply rooted in electronic music, he utilizes non-traditional techniques and processes to compose works that don’t squarely align with any single genre or style, creating hybrid sounds incorporating, bluegrass, rock, folk, and technology.
