Individual Artist

Tori Hathaway is a fourteen year-old Canadian singer-songwriter from Barrie, ON. Energetic and innovative, she has a deep passion for songwriting and performance. She is a self-motivated artist who has been honing her craft since early childhood. She has written over 100 songs and has won numerous awards.

"I was impressed that as a very young singer, Tori radiated and element of excitement and passion for music that is often missing in those much older."   Jack Latimer, Program Director – KICX 106 FM, (Orillia, ON). September 2013

Honing her craft through participation in co-writing sessions with established writers and artists, Tori is also actively participating in songwriting rounds in Toronto, Oakville and the GTA. Additionally, she has performed in over 250 live performances, radio and TV appearances since 2010 gaining valuable stage experience and building a supportive fan base.

“I met Tori at the CCMA weekend in Edmonton last year. She is a pleasant down–to-earth girl who has surrounded herself with a very supportive team. She writes her own songs, and is not afraid to perform in any situation.” Cal Gratton, Program Director/Music Director/Host  – XM105FM and Music Director 105 CJVR, (Whitecourt, AB). October 2013

Most recently, Tori released her radio-ready, debut, self-titled EP, produced by Douglas Romanow at the prestigious Noble Street Studios in Toronto, ON. Tori is touring to support the release within Canada and meet her growing base of over 6000 supporters from coast to coast. Through active and lively engagement online, Tori is quickly developing a solid ‘feet-on-the-street’ basis for local promotion in many communities. Organic growth on Facebook is a strength, and she has authentic engagement with fans of all ages.

 

“Thanks so much for…the chance to speak to Tori and play her music [on Fresh Music Friday ] We got a really great response from our listeners!” Nancy MacKinnon,  Host - Fresh Music Fridays on 93.3FM  (Settler, AB). September 2013

Tori’s performance career path was launched at age eleven on the full-production, main stage of Celebrate Barrie in 2010, where she delivered a solid 45 minute set with her four-piece band to open the festival.  

 

At age thirteen, Tori produced a two-hour live variety show featuring her own original music, two guest-artists and a five-piece band. She raised over $10,000 for Habitat for Humanity, engaged over 60 new volunteers and sponsors, and highlighted the brand new City of Barrie theatre. She was also featured in a two-minute segment in Season 5, Episode 3 of The Next Star, broadcast on YTV.

 

In addition to winning Local Live II (produced by Major Entertainment Group, sponsored by Corus Entertainment), Tori received a nomination for “Most Promising Youth” for the City of Barrie Arts Awards 2012, and 2013 and a nomination for the CMAO “Female Artist of the Year” in 2013.

 

She was selected to perform at the CCMA “Diamonds in the Rough” showcase in Edmonton, AB in September 2013 and has a history of industry showcasing with OAAS and CAFÉ from 2011 onward. 

 

As part of her homeschool studies, Tori studies music professionally.  She has studied violin beginning at age 4, and more recently vocal lessons in Toronto with Elaine Overholt and guitar/banjo locally with Kene Hyatt.  She has also attended TIFT summer camps over many years (age 5 – 12) and more recently The Randolph Academy in Toronto for their triple threat program.   Although she is academically in grade 9, she is already studying post-secondary level music courses online through the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she is receiving grades in the 90’s.
