Originally from the midwest, Tory Floyd grew up between two worlds: putting on "at-home concerts” to her parent's heavy rotation of artists like The Jackson 5 and a deep relationship to the world of sports. Floyd’s athletic ability gave her a path to college, but songwriting and performing always took the lead. Music’s role in the family didn’t stop at playing records as kids, but both she and her brothers have managed to turn that influence into their own careers. Going back to the early sessions of 2018’s “Bloom”, she’s constantly been in the studio with her number one collaborator and producer; her brother Press Tone of Press Tone Productions. Her soulful pop style pulls influence from melody master Ariana Grande & lyrical storyteller Julia Michaels.
Expanding her impact on the industry, Floyd has caught the attention of those in the radio & TV/film world as well. In late 2021 she was named the first 104.3 MYfm's Valentine In the Morning Holiday star in their search for talented up & coming artists. Her music has also been featured on multiple nationally and internationally aired television shows; notable examples are The CW’s Black Lightning & the critically acclaimed Black-ish spinoff, Grown-ish.
Some of her past releases include the edgy pop/R&B blend “A(WY)” which carries gritty Ariana & SZA vibes. Decoded, this title means “Alone (With You)”. It’s especially fluent in the female perspective; knowing when it’s time to take back control and when it’s time to leave. Summer '21 rolled in hot with the light & flirty "Keep You Mine"; for those that want to soak in a new love before unleashing it on to the world.
Introspective, yet rhythmic, the latest single “As It Is” is the perfect summation of what makes the human experience both complex and colorful. The song takes a lighthearted approach to the issue of comparison & pressure we put on ourselves to have everything figured out. This pop anthem welcomes the desire to live and love the life you’re given.
