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 hundreds of 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 26,000 views, her following has been growing.
Throughout quarantine, Tori has successfully (and safely) put her band, "Tori V & the Karma" together.

They have plenty of shows under their belt and have begun traveling in recent months, including playing several shows in the Harrisburg area at Central Penn College. Even including taking the main stage at the Luzerne County Fair in 2021 and headlining in 2022. Then, taking on opening for the 2022 "Rockin' the River" Concert series.
Tori V & the Karma have spent the past year practicing and recording, and released their first single under the bands name, called "Find Me," on October 31st, 2021, with an upcoming album to follow in 2023.
Tori plans on continuing to branch out and play bigger venues with her band and have as many people hear her music as possible.
