Tori Bella', the most noTORIous Artist, Singer and Songwriter to come out of Philadelphia, PA.
After receiving a call at midnight by another Philly artist, who was signed to a West Coast label, he asked her if she would come into the studio to record a song. Word does travel fast around Philly. And, he heard about the then (Tori Lynn now known as Tori Bella') through a friend of a friend who introduced them. That friend told him about her dynamic writing skills, ability to come up with hooks, and that she could freestyle an entire song. He was sold on her talent.
Growing up in a home where music was played 24/7, Tori Bella's musical taste came from listening to everyone from Chaka Khan to Minnie Riperton, and of course, Tori Bella's favorite, Sade.
This West Philadelphia native in her own right is no stranger to the stage or mic. Tori Bella' has graced many stages in and around Philly from being the Opening act for CeCe Peniston at the Trocedero, South Street Blues, Million Artist March, The CW Philly, and the cable TV show In Motion, just to name a few. In addition to the stage, Tori Bella' appeared in TV commercials for Philly's Melrose Diner and HBO.
And than, along came Radio. Songs in which Tori Bella' sang and wrote from her first album noTORIous Secrets received airplay, "If I Could Capture Time" and "Listening To The Rain" on WUSL and WIOQ in Philadelphia. Also Lincoln University, WENN in Birmingham, AL - as well as her songs "Diggitt" and "Heated Groove" on WUSL in Philadelphia.
And, if by chance you missed any of her live shows, it is definitely something you cannot afford to miss in the future.
This phenomenal Artist, Singer and Songwriter financed and worked together with Tower Records (South Street) in Philadelphia, and the Sound of Market to put out her first EP CD titled noTORIous Secrets which sold out in stores in Philly.
Tori Bella' mentioned to me that the first album noTORIous Secrets, and second album TORIOT are very different albums. "On the noTORIous Secrets album, I worked with producer Dodd Stocker-Edwards who did the track for "I Wanna Go Under". As we speak, and to this day - everybody still loves that song. It's a favorite on iTunes. The second album TORIOT, I workedwith Cee Knowledge, Doodlebug from Digable Planets, and producer Kasar Tha Star who I met through Cee Knowledge".
Tori Bella's third album is due to be released 2014. The lady herself gave me a little insight on what we can expect. "It's my 'truth' album. A new look, and I'm just my excited for everybody to hear it".
