Shotgun Tori is, at heart, a storyteller, a woman with a voice and a guitar, her subject matter approached with an interesting, occasionally humorous, yet always insightful life view.

Her touching, raw vocal delivery is both tender and powerful, and listeners are left with no doubt that she sings straight from her heart. Tori’s music puts you on the spot, in the moment, while sometimes fun and upbeat, it is often gentle and heart-wrenching.

With over 300 live performances since her debut in 2011, her personal record being three shows on one day, Tori has toured the length and breadth of South Africa and thrown in Namibia and Mozambique for good measure.

Her commitment to her craft and her dedication to performing live has seen her become a music festival staple with performances at Oppikoppi, Strab, Afrika Burns, Mieliepop, Parklife (where she opened the main stage for international headliner Xavier Rudd), Rise & Shine and more.

Sweet Weather, the single, with accompanying video, off her critically acclaimed 2011 debut EP Are We Fine Yet?, had a 9 week run on the MKTV Top 10 reaching the coveted number one spot and a receiving a nomination for an MK Award in the “Best Solo” category. The song also reached the number 2 spot on the Jon Savage 5fm Chart Show.

Her latest music offering, the aptly titled Be Brave, and her first full length album, is due end June 2013. Wanting to retain her musical independence Tori received most of the album funding from fans through an indiegogo.com crowd funding campaign. The album was produced by Jay “Rambling” Bones and engineered at the legendary B# Studios by JP Destefani.
