Shotgun Tori - Alt/Folk from Johannesburg
"Rambling through the Jozi underground indie/folk scene, alt/folk singer-songwriter, Shotgun Tori is starting to make a name for herself. A storyteller, her lyrics are dark & light, humorous & self-deprecating. Powerful vocals & jangly guitar, her music is in moments fun and upbeat, and in others gentle and heart-wrenching. (On a side note, her mother wishes that it was all gentle...)
Reared at an all-girls convent in Jhb, she moved to London at 17 and cut her teeth on tiny stages, playing to non-receptive, heckling audiences. Times have changed, as have both the stages & the audiences.
Influences include: Ryan Adams, Lucinda WIlliams, the Waifs, Martha Wainwright, The Be Good Tanyas, Ani DiFranco, Amanda Palmer and Leonard Cohen." - her facebook page
