finds its own level
and Tori White knows
where shes going.
When we first heard her,
we predicted something
big we still stand by
that, and if you have yet
to hear this impressive
young lady sing then
youll have missed a treat...
TONI'S PURE NOTES, clear vocals and the way her voice touches each
new note with ease before flitting on to the next works to great advantage on
her new CD release, Who If It's Not You.
Who If It's Not You is a toe-tapping, heart-swelling pleasure. The show-stopping
talent and the versatility of this 19-year-old singer con-tinue to prove that
Tori just can't go wrong. It seems that any sound that comes from her mouth
will always be delightful. As she sings,
she soars through the genres of heart-rending soul, power-pop and
R 'n' B, producing passionate and compelling songs that appeal to a wide-ranging
audience so much strength delivered with a surprising gentleness.
Sultry star Tori's Who If It's Not You is an upbeat, soulful example
of infectious and perfect pop. Fresh from her major debut performance at the
Festival of Remembrance singing her Poppy Appeal song Please Remember
in front of the Queen and an audience of 16,000 which earned her a standing
ovation and a smile from Her Majesty Tori is proving herself to be marked
for fame. Singing for such esteemed company would be enough to put many new
singers off their stroke; but not Tori.
Please Remember was dedicated to those who lost their lives fighting
for their country and Tori White shows a degree of maturity and professionalism
rare in a teenager. Midlands-born Tori's honey-sweet voice has won her many
plaudits already in her promising career, including the attention of legendary
producer Jim Dooley who was moved to say: "We are about to unleash Britain's
biggest new pop star in decades."
Tori's latest single, Who If It's Not
You, is out on 14 January 2008 on Mbop Records and is available to download
from the Mbop Megastore online at mbopmegastore.com/.
rose of song set
for trailblazing career...
GLAMOROUS NEW SINGER TORI WHITE made her major debut performance in a unique
and dramatic way singing live to the nation on BBC Radio 2 at
the Festival of Remembrance, at the Royal Albert Hall on November 10, in front
of high-profile guests including The Queen. It will come as no surprise to her
growing number of fans that she received a standing ovation. Unfortun-ately
her appearance was not televised by the BBC because the Festival of Remembrance
programme was not shown in full. A huge disappointment to both Tori and her
supporters and no doubt also to The British Legion.
Tori's new single release, Please Remember is very special. Not only
for the range of emotions her beautiful and powerful but controlled voice stirs
along with plenty of uplifting notes but also because it was specially
selected for the Festival and proceeds from the sale of every single are being
donated to The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal. A worthy anthem for a worthy
cause and a great song!
Tori is very visual and has that rare presence that keeps you mes-merised. Her
showcase to the press proved she has what it takes oodles of talent,
looks and yet more talent. This girl has the courage, determination and stamina
to make waves…
Tori White's Please Remember was
released on 5 November. The second track is I Ain't Going Nowhere With You
(But Home). Catchy, commendable and a perfect foil.
VERY FIRST LIVE PERFORMANCE BY TORI WHITE took place at The Goring Hotel, London
in front of a media audience and guests on Tuesday, September 25 (2007) in conjunction
with The Royal British Legion.
The Goring Hotel was chosen not just for being London's quintess-entially English
hotel, but also because it is the place where Tori's father Nigel White had
met Jim Dooley and asked him to listen to his daughter's recording.
Tori sang three songs, including her brilliant single You Don't Scare Me
At All and also Remember Me the track was co-written and pro-duced
by Jim Dooley for the 2007 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. The effect of
her live singing was staggering and brought a lump to
Tori is an absolute knockout and has that elusive gift of star quality. The
depth and strength of her voice is quite astounding and she will go far. She
should expect something big we thought she had the pres-ence of a young
Judy Garland when she was fresh and unspoilt. Each time you hear the CD it sounds
fresh and new, but her singing is even better live.
She gave such a fantastic performance that nobody in the room was
in any doubt why BBC producers were so moved by her singing and Remember
Me that the song was selected for the 2007 Festival of Remembrance. Tori
will make history by becoming the first pop artist ever to have an official
song for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal*.
Tori White benefits from the backing, love and support of her close-knit family:
father Nigel, who clearly dotes upon his daughter; her mother Sue and brother
You could quite believe her declaration You Don't Scare Me At All as
she came across as being happy, confident and chilled out. But never, ever any
trace of vanity.

A LITTLE LUCK and a lot of talent, glamorous new pop discovery Tori White is
hotly tipped for stardom. The girl with the exceptional, silky voice is making
her debut major performance on November 10 live to the nation on the
BBC at The Royal Albert Hall, in front of the Queen and other royal and very
An artiste of revered musical standing, Tori is expected to follow in the steps
of Victoria Hart as the latest 'Vocaltech' music academy graduate to be singled
out for excellence. Victoria was the teenager for whom George Clooney recently
helped to pull off a multi-million pound record deal.
Tori's remarkable achievement started in January 2006 with an audition to enrol
for the Vocal Diploma Course. Once course tutors had heard her sing, Tori was
instantly elevated to the Master Diploma the youngest of five vocalists
chosen to take the Master Diploma by five years. Not surprisingly, she earned
the highest grades for her six show-cases.
Listening to her single You Don't Scare Me At All, her voice certainly
has the feel of being 'established' and it was this unique vocal delivery that
sparked the interest of the front man of one of the world's most successful
bands, The Dooley's.
Producer/legend Jim Dooley had a chance meeting with Tori's father at an hotel.
"He mentioned his daughter was a singer and gave me her demo," says Jim. "I
was blown away and agreed to be her executive producer. I played her music to
a number of leading figures including Dan Saxon and Mark James, the producers
behind Simply Red. They knew she was an amazing talent and we started working
on an incredible debut album now we are about to unleash Britain's biggest
new pop star in decades."
BBC producers were so moved with one of Tori's tracks that it was selected for
this year's Festival of Remembrance and it has subseq-uently been chosen as
the official record for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2007.
The publicity machine says: Tori's impending release has created a massive stir,
and with such anticipation from industry and public alike, she bears a weight
of expectation and is keen to live up to the hype. With a vibrant blend of soulful
ballads, power-pop and R 'n' B hooks she is sure to do just that. Her heartfelt
and meaningful songs appeal to a wide-spanning mainstream audience and fans
of all ages.
What greater platform could there be to officially launch this perpet-ually
rising star than at The Royal Albert Hall?
With a fresh and clear voice that oozes seduction as she delivers all that she
promises, Tori White is a name to watch!
