TORI Bella' is the Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Owner, CEO and
Founder of noTORIous Secrets/Silky Sheer Productions.  Her
concept and ideas when choosing a name for her company was to keep
everything "sexy and feminine".
 TORI Bella' started her company due
to her passion for Music, especially Songwriting.  All of the songs that
you hear are written and arranged by
TORI Bella'.  They are original,
homegrown, and it all comes from Philadelphia, PA.  With the
suggestion of a fellow musician from Chicago, via a friend of a friend, a
name for her company.  Of course, doing her research, she came up
with
noTORIous Secrets/Silky Sheer Productions.  TORI Bella'
says, "
I had to come up with something creative.  Honestly, I can
thank my friends for this one.  They are the ones who made me think
outside of the box, and the name no
TORIous just stuck.  To this day,
everybody still calls me either
TOR, noTORIous or just Bella'."

The Artist, Singer and Songwriter!  TORI Bella's love of Music and
Songwriting all started with Poetry.  It all began with her love of
Langston Hughes, her favorite Poet, and a Haiku.  After falling in love
with Mr. Hughes work, she started writing her own Poetry.  
"When I
was a kid, I use to write all the time.  Thinking back on it now, that's
all I ever did with my time."  
One of her teachers in school, told her to
Never understood it because I never won any of them.  But, for some
reason, I believe that was his intention all along - just to see how far I
could go with it.  The lesson I believe now that he was trying to show
me back then was to motivate me.  I truly believe it was not all about
winning so much as keeping at something that you were naturally
good at, and not giving up, and if you stuck with something long
enough, in time, it would pay off.  He would tell me all the time,
here's a contest I want you to enter.  Honestly, it would annoy me, but
I would just start writing and kept at it.  Never knew why he pushed
me so hard all the time.  Glad he did push me.  Mr. Fabian was my
biggest supporter, biggest influence, biggest cheerleader, and because
of that one teacher, I am now writing Songs, and recording them."

So TOR, who is that one person, that most people tell you that you
sound like?  What's your style/genre of Music?  And, who would you
say is your favorite Singer?  
"A lot of people tell me that I have that
Neo Soul vibe.  You know, kind of chill, cool, laid back sound. Believe
everybody hears something different.  Let me tell you this story real
quick.  I was singing at a private event, and a guy came up to me and
said that I sound a lot like a Jazz Singer.  He mentioned this lady,
who is a Jazz Singer, but I don't remember her name.  He said, I
sound just like her.  Basically, my voice goes really deep, and at times
I will hit a high note.  When you hear my Music, I believe you have to
decide for yourself who I sound like.  But honestly, I have to say, I
sound like myself {smiles}.  As far as my genre of Music?  Let's just
say I'm testing some new waters as we speak, and that will be
changing real soon.  And, my favorite Singer - it's Sade, all day."

I always wanted to ask this question.  TOR, what is your Songwriting
process like when you start writing a Song?  Is there a particular place
where you like to go to write?  And, is there a "must have" like say
candles, complete quiet, soft Music playing in the background?  Do you
have a certain room where you like go?
 "My process - well, I only
write Songs when I have something to say, and when I'm feeling it.  
For instance - if I have something on my mind, and I get hyped about
it, I'm writing about it.  If what I have to say doesn't come easy for me
to write, I won't force it.  It has to just flow.  And if not, I'll put the
pen and paper away until it comes to me.  Also, the Songwriting
process usually goes in spurts for me.  There may be a time where I'll
go crazy writing a ton of Songs, then all of a sudden, nothing will
come out at all.  Is there a particular place?  No, not really.  A long
time ago, my thing was writing Songs sitting on the floor in my living
room.  It gave me a lot of space to spread my papers everywhere.  
Plus, that's the biggest room, that's why I did it that way.  Now, I
write Songs everywhere.  In the car, record ideas so I can come back
to them later.  But, at the end of the day, I always end up in the living
room for some reason {lol}.  You asked about a quiet place?  Is there
such a place?  Basically, I just tune everything and everybody out,
and start writing."
