Tori Tullier, One Of Nashville's Best Kept Secrets, Set To Release New EP - 'Baby Steps'
Tori Tullier is an award-winning songwriter based in Nashville, TN originally from Annapolis, MD. In 2014 she received the ASCAP Foundation Sammy Cahn Lyric Writing Award for her solely-penned song "Nicotine." Past winners of the award include John Mayer, Lori McKenna, Josh Ritter and Katie Herzig.
Her songs have landed on US and Canadian radio with cuts by Tim Hicks (with Lindsay Ell), Tenille Arts, Stephanie Quayle, Emma White, Brittany Kennell and more.
She has also had recent success with placements in an ad campaign for YouTube, and in the 2021 major motion picture, “The Mauritanian.” Tori has performed at Tin Pan South along with several Bluebird Cafe appearances. She has had songs featured in People, Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, and Forbes magazine, and performed at The Grand Ole Opry. While attending the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, Tori took first place in the Bruce Hornsby Songwriting competition.
Taking a chapter from the classic Nashville story -- after spending a decade writing for other artists -- in 2020 she returned to writing on her own, savouring the impromptu sessions alone at night with just her and her piano, and maybe a glass of red.
Born from those sessions, “Songbird" is the third single from her forthcoming EP, Baby Steps, formally introducing the world to one of Nashville’s best kept secrets.
