TORI Bella' is the Artist, Singer, Songwriter, Owner, CEO and Founder of
TORIous 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, home grown, and it
all comes from Philadelphia, PA.  It all started with people around Philly who heard about
her being a Singer and Songwriter.  And, that she could also freestyle an entire Song and
Hook.  The calls started pouring in for her to go into the studio to record songs or sing on
hooks.  Let’s just say, things started falling into place, and
TORI Bella' decided to start
doing her own music.  
TORI Bella' began doing shows in and around Philly, and after
working in Radio and TV for awhile, she decided that her passion for Music was much
greater.  With the suggestion of a fellow musician from Chicago, via a friend of a friend,
he told
TORI Bella' that it would be significant if she had a name for her company.  Of
course, doing her research, she came up with
noTORIous Secrets/Silky Sheer
.  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'."

TORI 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 continue writing because he saw her enormous potential.  
teacher, Mr. Fabian would make me enter these Poetry contest all the time.  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.  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 some- thing 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."
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
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 one guy in particular 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."
