Tori V is an original rock artist based in Northeastern Pennsylvania. She began performing in 2016 at the age of 15 in the local NEPA bar scene and has played well over 200 shows since.
Tori released her first self-titled EP, “Tori V” in 2019, and has since quickly gained notoriety across the state of Pennsylvania.
However, her popularity has been growing since "Tori V - EP" has been added to the rotation of several radio stations, including "Guitar God Radio," based in Canada.
Tori has been on several local radio stations, including 105 The River, 92.1 ALT-Natives, 97.9X WBSX, and 98.5 KRZ. Tori has also done multiple "Wack-Job Songs" for the Jeff and Amanda show, including "Corona Fight Song" and more.
Tori won "Best New Album" in 2019 by popular vote in the Access NEPA competition. She has also been nominated for four awards at the 2020 Steamtown Music Awards.
Not only has she been gaining notoriety through live performances and radio time, but Tori has also built up a relatively large social media following. By posting creative cover videos, including her cover of Journey's "Faithfully," which has over 14,000 views, her following has been growing.
Throughout quarantine, Tori has successfully (and safely) put her band, "Tori V & the Karma" or "Tori-Full Band," together. Members include, JonLabenski(drums), Gerry Tulao (bass), and Jack Davenport (guitar). They made their first live show appearance at the Flock Cancer benefit for Karen in Wapwallopen, PA.
In May of 2020, Tori independently released an unplugged acoustic album called "Everything I Should Have Said." She has mentioned a future full-length hard rock album that is a continuation of her EP "Tori V," but a release date has not been announced.
Tori plans on continuing to branch out and play bigger venues and have as many people hear her music as possible.
