Josiah Tobin - musician, artist, indie game developer and all-round creative busyperson. As an up-and-coming chiptune artist, Josiah combines uplifting, playful melodies with precise technical proficiency, effortlessly flowing structures, and some serious groove to bring something truly fresh and rewarding to your ears.

Drawn to chiptunes for their freedom of style and expression, this Rat can also be found crafting various visual and aural assets for Calgary-based iPhone developer, Broken Kings (Castle Conflict, Ant Attack), playing various instruments in local rock bands (particularly the intense, short-lived industrial metal of Swimfail), and as one half of the enigmatic indie game dev team Bridge Unit Orzo. (He also has a side gig washing dishes, but that's some seriously top-secret stuff!)
