“Peace and Tolerance are the messages Tora Woloshin hopes to convey when Jukebox Records releases her latest single, "More Than I Asked For," on October 1. Not only a peace anthem, this poetic but poppy composition is intended to inspire people to rise up against intolerance and persecution and contribute to making the world a better place. Conveying a simple message in the chorus, "I don’t think it’s right that we all have to fight, this is not what I asked for," the song is a collaboration with Wayne "Roc" Bolton, who has produced music for Leona Lewis, Shaggy and Trey Songz. When asked what inspired the song, Tora says, "I was writing a song about the music industry and my dreams when I started to see parallels with the turbulence in the world. I'm not political but I have strong feelings about how religion, or really-people's intolerance of everyone else's religion, seems to be at the root of violence and persecution around the world. My hope is that while you are singing along ”

Tora, Simon Cowell's favored contestant from last season's X-Factor performed "Don't Want You Back" by Jackson 5, "Confidential" and "Look Out Weekend." "It was a honor to perform at such a tremendous event for the community and children of Miami. I would like to thank Strong Arm, International Music Group, Power 96, the FLO Football League, and residents of Miami for the opportunity to perform.

“Tora Woloshin didn't let a little thing like rejection from one of the world's leading star makers crush her rock 'n' roll dreams. Weeks after being booted from Simon Cowell's "X-Factor" talent competition last August, Woloshin started working on her debut solo album. The self-penned, DIY album "Open Heart Surgery" comes out on Valentine's Day Tuesday. She will hold a CD release party and benefit concert at DV8 nightclub Feb. 18. The concert will be much more than Woloshin standing on a stage. It's going to be a Vegas-worthy show, complete with at least a dozen dancers performing Woloshin's choreography. "It's kind of different," she said, describing the 11-song CD as a mix of pop and rock, with a little acoustic folk. "On the album, I really got deep," she added. "I created the music as well. I've never produced before, so that was fun." Since "X-Factor," Woloshin has fielded offers and inquiries about record deals; she's now in talks with an indie label in Florida.”

“A few months ago, Tora Woloshin introduced herself to North American entertainment in a big way. During her initial X Factor performance in Seattle, WA,....Tora captivated both judges and audience with her love for life personality, contagious smile and soulful tone of her voice. By the end, everyone was giving her a standing ovation and left yearning for more. Nowadays, Tora is putting the finishing touches on a solo album entitled "Open Heart Surgery" and sorting through the multiple offers coming in from every which way. Amid her hectic schedule and new found fame, Tora still found time to sit down and speak with us.”

“...this 21-year old college student does have the look and the talent to go very far on The X Factor, as proven last night. Woloshin took to the stage and instantly engaged the crowd with her version of "I Want You Back," earning praise from the judges that included L.A. Reid saying she "turned the place out." Simon Cowell was even more effusive and to the point: "I absolutely love you, Tora. Something about you, the minute you walked out. That's why this show is called 'The X Factor.' It's more than just the voice, it's something else."”

“Last night's X Factor had MUCH more talent than the nights before, and we were really happy to see that kind of shift in the show. Among the talent was Tora Woloshin, who just has that certain something about her: a great voice, great personality, and great stage presence! She totally has the X Factor!! ”

“On the final audition episode of The X Factor, 21-year-old Tora Woloshin blew the judges and audience away with her fantastic voice, unique style, and high-wattage star power. She brought the house down and got four very enthusiastic yes votes from the judges. It was kind of shocking that Tora hadn’t already been discovered. ”

“In the meantime, Tora Woloshin–unfairly kept from the top 17 in a decision that seems worse by the day–has an EP out, available to stream or download. They’re not complicated–close to demos, really–but they’re more than listenable, and Tora’s clearly going for a specific sound: synthy, tense and as ’80s as anything that’s doing well of late. It bodes well for her career, should it take off as it deserves to. Our favorite cuts: the stormy “Winner Takes It All” (not an ABBA cover), “Mellow Shots,” with its killer “I don’t wanna wait for you anymore” chorus and haunting backing vocals, and the self-assured stomp of “Bring the Cameras.” “When it comes to me, you can never get enough,” she sings; we can’t say we disagree much. ”

“On last night's visit to the home of Simon Cowell, X Factor hopeful Tora Woloshin covered a Rolling Stones classic. But it wasn't entirely accurate: this 21-year old most definitely can get satisfaction, and it's all in the hands of the British judge who sat back and seemed unsure what to do with someone who looks and sounds like Woloshin.”

“We really like this chick! Tora Woloshin definitely gives us the Pink vibe ”
