âWhat a VOICE! And there are no B-sides on this record, just different flavors. Those are the songwriting skills of someone like Roseanne Cash.â --Jon Delange (Tinderbox Music)
Tori Sparks' very-seriously-anticipated second album Under This Yellow Sun will be released to radio on August 14th. The mélange of textures contained within these twelve songs defies the bounds of expectation, and will tickle at least 6 of your 5 senses. David Henry (R.E.M., Ben Folds, Vienna Teng, Josh Rouse, Jill Sobule, Widespread Panic, Indigo Girls, Cowboy Junkies) and Tori co-produced the album, which was fun, and involved banging on sheet metal at one point. Steve Bowman from the Counting Crows, Aaron Sands from Jars of Clay, and many other amazing folks added their personal panache to the raw energy of Toriâs music. The album features a very wacky and sexy BONUS MUSIC VIDEO for âCold War" (directed by Wayne Hall) as well as a free online EP, Little Stories. Under This Yellow Sun will be released under the auspices of Glass Mountain Records.
âAh yes, but from whence does this crazy chick comeâ¦??â
Tori Sparks recorded her first EP, Tidewaters, in 2003, which attracted the attention of an independent label based in Nashville.They snapped her up, promptly recorded her debut album and music video Rivers + Roads in 2005, moved her to Nashville, and even more promptly went belly-up. Where some would crumbleâ¦ well, she semi-crumbled and then got really pissed offâ¦ Tori emerged from the wreckage and dove into eight solid months of exhaustive touring, radio, and video promotion. (The radio and video thing went shockingly well in the olâ U.S. of A., Belgium, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, France, and England.) One of the aforementioned eight months was devoted to The Feed Your Soul Guitar Project, a tour and folk art auction benefiting Oxfam America. ASCAP, The Village Voice, Paste Magazine Online, Northeast InTune Magazine, NBC, ABC, FOX, the Womenâs Right to Rock Music Festival and other papers and publications thought this was pretty cool and said so. Tori now has a big map of the U.S. and Europe, full of little colored pins marking cities sheâs played. It looks way better than the battered Fear and Loathing poster that was its predecessor.
Tori Sparks' show has been a marked success in listening rooms in Nashville, theaters in Ireland, clubs in L.A., coffee houses in West Virginia, art houses in NY, pubs in England, juke joints in Florida, and more. The fearless chanteuse makes the audience her own in any setting. She basically grabs them by the hair and swings them around andâ¦ ok, no.
Besides her big black boots, and balls-to-the-wall guitar playing, Tori is known for being a part of and/ or organizing benefit concerts on behalf of the National Federation of the Blind, F.A.C.E., the March of Dimes, and the One Campaign. She encourages musicians of any stripe to give back whenever and wherever they can.
Under This Yellow Sun and Tori's debut album Rivers + Roads can each be purchased for less than the price of a veggie burger in L.A. at one of 100+ digital distributors in 25 countries, including the ubiquitous iTunes, and 39 CD retailers, including BestBuy.com, Target.com.
