In support of the release of her debut CD "Spilling Over" July 10th, pop rock singer/songwriter Tora will perform at this year's CBGB Festival in New York City on Friday, July 6th, at 10pm at The Lit Lounge. She will be in good company as this year's festival features performances by Guided By Voices, Wyclef Jean, Redd Kross, Fishbone, David Johansen and many others who are part of the 2012 version of the infamous annual music festival that mixes new and emerging artists with performances by established talent.
Tora returns to New York straight on the heels of a wildly successful performance at the Sunset Sessions Rocks Radio Promo and Film Supervision Conference June 21-24th in California, where radio programmers and industryites raved about her visit alongside the likes of Lit, Everclear, Taproot and P.O.D. "Watching Tora at Sunset Sessions reminded me that I can be surprised by music. I believed her and know large audiences will too," said James Howard Program- Director WWDC in Washington DC. Added Ward Hake, Vice President of Music , 20th Century Fox, "If you've been wondering if the NYC music scene is still vibrant with new young artists, then you need to check out Tora. Tora is a native New York artist with her own sound and vision."
Singer/songwriter Tora Fisher found her voice -and salvation- through heartache and loss. After all, it's not many people who like Tora, walk away as the sole survivor of a tragic plane crash. In her debut CD, SPILLING OVER, a passionate ode to these very themes, Tora explores these feelings track by track and word by word, having written or co-written all the songs on the album, and delivering something that is nothing short of highly personal and intensely moving, a passionate song cycle that explores the emotions which emanate from the very depths of the human soul. Produced by Tora and Michael Mugrage, who also co-wrote several tracks on the CD, SPILLING OVER is set for release July 10th, 2012, via LML Music/Allegro.
