Nashville Rock n' Soul Chanteuse Tori Sparks to Play Frenso
Fresno, CA (September 16, 2008) - Award-winning chanteuse and internationally acclaimed songwriter Tori Sparks will play for the first time in Fresno during her Fall 2008 Tour. She will play for one night only, on Thursday, October 16th at Rep's Cocktail Lounge, presented by D4D Entertainment. Doors are at 8pm, show begins at 9pm, with local artists TBA. Rep's is located at 3874 N Blackstone Ave, Fresno, 93726. Call 559-222-5272 for directions. No cover.
Tori Sparks calls Nashville home, but spends most of her time on the road in the U.S. and Europe. Called “a knockout” by the Village Voice, her dynamic live show is equal parts soulful singing and zany stand-up-style humor. Tori's latest album “Under This Yellow Sun” was produced by David Henry, (R.E.M., Ben Folds, Josh Rouse, Cowboy Junkies), and features players such as Steve Bowman (Counting Crows), Aaron Sands (Jars of Clay), and John Deaderick (Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams). Though she played several showcases in Los Angeles in 2007, this will be Tori's first major tour of the West Coast.
“Under This Yellow Sun” is Tori's third release, the first on her own record label, Glass Mountain Records. The album has been praised by Relix, Harp, Skope, Performing Songwriter, PopMatters, Maverick, XM Radio, and others. It was recently licensed to MTV, Lifetime, and Oxygen Networks for use in their 2008 television programming. Tori's single “Cold War” is also featured on the newly released Universal Music France double-disc compilation, and the Paste Magazine New Music Sampler (Issue # 43).
