Toy Subs is an American indie rock band from Houston, Texas, consisting of Jamie Daruwala (r. guitar, lead vocals), Greg Mayfield (bass and vocals), Alex Tittel (guitar and vocals), and Alan Doss (drums and vocals).
Jamie Daruwala first saw Alex Tittel playing with a fusion/rock/jazz instrumental band, Wasted Potential, while attending a keg party at Rice University in late 1987. Two songs caught Jamie’s attention, and they both happened to be based on Alex’s riffs. “He was everything I always wanted in a guitar player, and our guitar sounds meshed really well, so I was able to start focusing on singing and writing”, said Jamie. The pair wrote their first song, “Awhile” from one of those riffs, and have been together ever since.
