TORI Bella's love of music and songwriting all started with Poetry. It all began with her love of Langston Hughes,
and a Haiku. After falling in love with Mr. Hughes work, she started writing herself. "As a kid, I would write all the
time. That's all I ever did thinking back on it. I wrote when I was happy or sad or if I saw something interesting. One
of her teachers in school, told her to continue writing because he saw her enormous potential. "My teacher would
literally make me enter these Poetry contest all the time. I never won any of them. But, I don't believe that was his
intention looking back on it. He would tell me, TOR, here's a contest I want you to enter - I would just look at him
with this crazed look, and just start writing. Never knew why he pushed me so hard all the time. I just thought he was
kinda pushy. Yet, I am so glad that he did push me. I can honestly say, he was my biggest supporter, biggest
influence, and because of that one teacher, Mr. Fabian, I'm not only writing Songs, but recording those songs that I
wrote as well. Who knew? He sure did!".
TORI Bella', what is your Songwriting process, and
when will you be out performing as far as shows again?
"Funny you asked me that question. Somebody just
called me last week about performing this Summer for
something they're having in Philly, but I will be in the
Studio recording. And yes, believe it or not, I do have a
process. I usually do the Songwriting first to make sure
those are the songs that make sense to me lyrically.
Then, I narrow those songs down to the ones that I really
love, and want to record in the Studio. After that, I'm
thinking of a picture for the CD cover. That process is
always in my head when I'm writing because I have a
clear vision of what I want to see for the next project".
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 it ‘sexy and
feminine’. TORI Bella' started her company due to her deep passion for music especially Songwriting. All the songs
that you listen to are written by TORI Bella'. They're original and ‘home grown’. It started with people around
Philadelphia who heard that she was a Singer and Songwriter, and they started calling TORI to come into the studio to
record a song or sing on a hook for them. Let’s just say, things started falling into place and TORI Bella' says, “when
you have a ‘dream’, I believe you never really see the entire picture until it starts happening”. So,
she started doing her own music. TORI Bella' did 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 she did her research, and she wanted to incorporate her name within that name. TORI Bella' came up with
noTORIous Secrets/Silky Sheer Productions. TORI Bella' says, “I can thank my friends for this one.
They are the ones who made the name noTORIous stick. To this day, everybody either calls me
Bella', noTORIous or just TOR".
