Toby Morse is the lead vocalist of the legendary New York punk band H2O. Not only is Toby a long-time adherent to a vegan lifestyle, but he also eschews drugs and alcohol and has never tried either in his life. Toby has been vegan since 1987 and was inspired to ditch animal products after listening to the song “Cats and Dogs” by New York hard core band Gorilla Biscuits.
On numerous occasions, PETA have nominated Morse as the “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian.”
Morse also regularly gives talks to school children in which he promotes the benefits of living a healthy life and maintaining a PMA (positive mental attitude.) On the subject of a PMA, Morse says, “When I was a teenager one of the songs that made a tremendous impact on the way I would live my life and the important choices I was to make was the song Attitude by the legendary band Bad Brains. There is a line that says, “Hey, we got that PMA,” meaning Positive Mental Attitude. I talk about, sing about, and live PMA!”
When not performing as a vocalist, Toby produces his own podcast, “One life one chance” in which he speaks unscripted with musicians, athletes, activists, and artists.
