“Tory is one of Houston's most promising young artists. With influences that range from Led Zeppelin to Sara Bareilles, it is no surprise that she wants to channel "Anna and Nancy Wilson (of Heart) a the same time”
"With an EP just released, UT student Tory Taranova has a few more items on her 'to do' list for 2011 - a full album, a couple of tours, and a feature film. Probably some studying and exams too. Indie Sounds caught up with her before the madness begins...."
“Tory has a strong yet expressive voice which she uses to bring the song's lyrics to life. Watch any of her videos and I expect that you will be as impressed as I am! This original song (Eye of a Hurricane) shows that Tory can compose an engaging musical composition, write poetic lyrics, sing with heartfelt emotion and play expressive guitar tracks. Only a few days old and already having a few thousand views, this video tells the world that Tory is here and ready to rule!”
