Sound Engineer - Nick Smith
Audio & Video production by Joe Lynch
PRESENTED BY LEE ANN McADOO
My name is Tory and I am a independent singer/songwriter/musician based in the Austin and Houston areas. I write my own original music in the pop blues rock vein. I also am a big music fan and play a ton of covers of other artists including everything from Tom Petty to Reckless Kelly to Little Wayne. I love to entertain and play a lot of different events and venues around Texas as a one man band such as Saxon Pub, Momos, Cellar Door, Fitzgeralds, Avant Garden, Wine Styles, County Line, etc.
I love to get a crowd riled up and get them dancing, yet I also love relaxing an audience in upscale environments. It's all about the audience for me. I play acoustic and electric guitar and keyboard and I have boundless energy and enthusiasm for what I do.
I have a lot of videos on YOUTUBE you should check out. It includes a mix of live performances at venues like SAXON PUB and MOMOS in Austin as well as home videos of me doing various covers. www.youtube.com/torytompkins
As a university student at UT Austin, my touring outside Texas has been limited to weekends and summers, but I have had the opportunity to play in Nashville, Los Angeles, Orange County (various) and even in Prague, Czech Republic!!
I recently released a short album back in January of my own original music. I have written dozens of originals, so a full album is on the way. Read the review below of the album by producer Marco Parella (below), and check out the EP on iTunes!! http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/somewhere-good-ep/id415932393
Thank you for your support! I'm an independent artist trying to make it on my own, so any help you give in my journey would be awesome!
