|Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase||Tori Sparks|
Sparks calls Nashville home, but spends most of her time on the road
in the U.S. and Europe. Called "a knockout" by the Village Voice,
Tori just released her third album, The Scorpion in the Story (Glass Mountain
Records, 2009), which is currently in the Top 100 on the Americana Radio Chart.
The album was co-produced with David Henry (R.E.M., Ben Folds, Cowboy Junkies),
and features an all-star cast of players including Viktor Krauss and Will Kimbrough.
Scorpion is a tour diary in the form of a concept album - each song was written
about one of the many colorful individuals Tori met while playing nearly 200
shows on the road in 2008. Tori's tunes have garnered five-star reviews from
All Music Guide, Relix, The Nashville Scene, Performing Songwriter, more, and
the song "Tall Towers" from the new album is featured on the Paste
Magazine New Music Sampler (July 2009).
