Tori B

Owner/ Writer

Tori's entertainment writing career dates back to 1999, when she created a classic glue-stick-and-Xerox fan zine focused soley on the Backstreet Boys, complete with mock interviews and carefully crafted photo galleries. Since then, Tori has broadened and improved both her writing skills and musical taste. She has contributed to several media outlets, including Re-Gen, The Vindicator, and RollingStone.com. Described by some as a mindgoddess, Tori's ability to adapt to her endeavors has proven impressive, covering everything from sugary pop-punk to aggressive electro to instrumental storytelling. Deconstructing soundscapes to analyze and qualify has always come naturally to Tori and driven her to seek out and create opportunities to offer her spin on the musical world.
