Tori Coyle was born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Southern California. It was in California, that she began singing and performing at the age of 14 with her father accompanying her on the guitar. At 15, she began studying voice at Chapman College where she was introduced to many genres and techniques. When she returned to Texas, she continued performing throughout her college years. Thereafter, Tori consistently performed at many Dallas venues and worked with several bands. Her first album 'Fly' was a dream conceived three years prior to it's release. It evolved from her love of the music she had listened to since she was a child. This album gave her the opportunity to integrate the memories of her childhood with the songs of today. It is a blending of old songs by Joan Baez and Linda Ronstadt combined with the newness of Sara Hickman and Nancy Wilson. Ever present is the influence of her family, which has given her the heart to sing.
