Tori Kelly
The Red Room at Cafe 939 presents Fresh Prospects, a showcase of the best up-and-coming Berklee artists reworking their favorite songs into intimate acoustic performances. This month's artists are Tori Kelly, along with Kaylee Bugg and William Gittens as supporting acts.
 
Southern California singer-songwriter Tori Kelly has just self-released Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly last May from scratch, a collection of songs that perfectly blend the accessibility of the girl next door with the depth and skill of a world-class artist. Kelly credits Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, John Mayer, Jeff Buckley, and gospel artists such as Crystal Lewis and J. Moss as her musical influences, which are reflected in her soulful pop/rock blend. It is her clear and uncompromising vision for her craft and career that has helped her build a YouTube channel that has garnered over 30,000,000 views and a following that spans the globe. In a world where so much music has become overproduced and complex, Kelly is a purist; her unique vocal runs and the purity of her tone are impossible to ignore. Her ambition, like her talent, is undeniable. Says Kelly: “I just want to share my passion and express myself through music, which will hopefully inspire the world."
