SINGER-SONGWRITER TORA TO PERFORM AT THE SUNSET SESSIONS IN LAS VEGAS NOVEMBER 8TH; PERFORMANCE TO BE ACCOMPANIED BY APPEARANCE AT ANNUAL VETERANS’ DAY PARADE NOVEMBER 11TH AND INTERVIEW ON RADIO STATION KDNW WITH ALAN STOCK
In support of her recently released CD “Spilling Over,” LML Music performing artist Tora will appear at this year’s annual Sunset Sessions Film and Radio Conference on the main stage at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas November 8th (Sunset Sessions alumni include Jason Mraz and Stevie Nicks). From Vegas, Tora will continue on to Chicago for the Jeff Buckley Tribute taking place at Uncommon Ground (Clark Street location) on November 13th and 14th. The fabled event – which features a roster of upcoming singer-songwriters every year along with a gourmet dinner - honors the legacy of singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Old Town School Of Folk Music
"Better Without," the first single from Tora’s debut CD, is being embraced on radio stations all across the United States. In conjunction with her appearance at The Sunset Sessions, Tora will also be doing an interview with KDNW radio personality Alan Stock as well as accompanying him to the the annual Las Vegas Veterans’ Parade on November llth (Tora’s family’s charity, Fisher House, aids and supports Veterans).
The critically-acclaimed Tora is a native New Yorker with her own sound and vision. A recent Billboard review stated, "Tora displays the depth to rally the masses with keenly written lyrics and expressive vocals...." Tora has just finished shooting her latest video for her next single, "DROWN," being released at the beginning of 2013 to coincide with her upcoming live performances throughout the country.
Singer/songwriter Tora Fisher found her voice -and salvation- through heartache and loss. After all, it’s not many people who like Tora, walk away as the sole survivor of a tragic plane crash. In her debut CD, SPILLING OVER, a passionate ode to these very themes, Tora explores these feelings track by track and word by word, having written or co-written all the songs on the album, and delivering something that is nothing short of highly personal and intensely moving, a passionate song cycle that explores the emotions which emanate from the very depths of the human soul. Produced by Tora and Michael Mugrage,
who also co-wrote several tracks on the CD, SPILLING OVER was released July 10th. With a powerful voice and edgy, eclectic style (not to mention those wordsmith prowesses) that bring to mind a combination of Tori Amos, Adele, Ann Wilson and Chrissie Hynde, twenty-three year old Tora Fisher is a musical force to be reckoned with. Additonal upcoming tour dates include Atlanta on December 4th, Talahassee on December 6th, Nashville on December 7th, Chattanooga on December 8th and Charleston on December llth
