Keyboard player Toby Smith wishes to spend more time with his family...

Jamiroquai keyboardist TOBY SMITH has quit the band.

Smith, who has a daughter, has decided to leave the group and spend more time with his family. His departure from the group is amicable, and future projects have not been ruled out.

Singer Jay Kay said: “It is sad to see him go but I totally understand the commitment Toby feels for his family and the strains of being away from home for long periods. I wish him all the best.”

The band’s summer live shows are unaffected by Smith’s departure.
