In 1996, a year before graduating at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Libby and three of her fellow WAAPA students formed a quartet which they called Hip Mo’ Toast. Over the years Hip Mo’ Toast matured and grew into an outstanding collective of Perth’s best jazz musicians, performing in ensembles ranging from a trio to a big band, all led by Libby herself.

Hip Mo’ Toast has performed thousands of concerts since 1996, including touring to the eastern states of Australia on two occasions, performing at the Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival in Italy in 2006 and performing at a royal wedding in Singapore in 2007. Hip Mo’ Toast has made four CD recordings and in 2006 won their sixth consecutive Western Australian Music Industry Association award for Most Popular Original Jazz Act.

As well as having composed original songs for Hip Mo’ Toast recordings, in August Libby completed her first commissioned work ‘The Glade’ for New Music For The Southern Forests. In her own right, Libby has performed with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra and alongside such Australian jazz icons as James Morrison and Joe Chindamo. She also has worked with international jazz artists such as Josh Hilberman (USA), Christoph Spendel (Germany) and two-time Grammy Winner Gary Bartz (USA).
