About Tori KellyTori Kelly is a 20 year-old singer/songwriter from Southern California. She self-released "Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly" last May, a collection of songs that perfectly blend the accessibility of the girl next door with the depth and skill of a world class artist. Tori started singing at age three and then picked up drums, piano and guitar shortly thereafter. She credits Michael Jackson, Jeff Buckley, John Mayer, Jill Scott, and gospel artists such as Crystal Lewis and J. Moss as her musical influences, which are reflected in her soulful pop/rock blend. It is her clear and uncompromising vision for her craft and career that has helped her build a YouTube channel that has garnered over 30,000,000 views and a following that spans the globe. The new "it girl" of music, Tori has generated a buzz not seen in years from a female singer/songwriter. When she stands on stage she gives new meaning to "a girl and her guitar." In a world where so much music has become overproduced and complex, Tori is a purist...her unique vocal runs and the purity of her tone are impossible to ignore. Some compare her to Jewel, some compare her to Alicia Keys, but she's very much just on her own: Tori Kelly.
