After Miley Cyrus shocked the whole world with her rebellious new album, "Bangerz," a breath of fresh air is exactly what the pop industry needs to recover.
California native, Tori Kelly, has been captivating the hearts of YouTube users with her beautiful voice since she was a young teenager in 2006, singing covers of songs from artists such as Beyoncé and Alicia Keys.
You may also know who Kelly is if you are a Vine user who has heard remakes and covers to her famous jingle that took over Vine this past summer. That jingle gave her notoriety and helped her gain more than 500,000 followers on Vine. Now, Kelly is about to launch her very first tour on Oct. 28 in Los Angeles that will work its way to Minnesota by late November.
She is collaborating with her new manager, Scooter Braun, on her upcoming album that will be released in the future as a follow up to her EP.
Now she is writing her own songs and starting fresh with her five-song EP entitled "Foreword."
Moving forward into the next chapter of her musical career is exactly what she's doing.
Starting off with a simple catchy beat, "Rocket" is a calm and soothing song about dreaming big and daring to venture out into the unknown. Next, there's "Dear No One," which shows that Kelly is an independent woman accepting that when the time is right, her "future someone" will come along someday. "Treasure" is the classic love song about an unexpected someone who is the new treasure in her life and just someone she enjoys getting to know and hanging out with.
Another love song, "Paper Hearts" is a sweet-sounding harmony, where Kelly confesses to remembering the old times through pictures and the happy memories that are non-existent today. This is a more somber love song that anyone going through a breakup can relate to with his or her experiences and memories. Ending the EP, the song "Daydream" is an inspiring song that encourages listeners to never give up on their dreams and to work hard because it's worth it in the end.
The album is soulful yet soothing with fun lyrics and outstanding vocals. Kelly is a young artist who continues to grow and gain more notoriety through appearances on "The Today Show" and singing appearances for hunger campaigns. Her album is highly reviewed on iTunes and continues to receive great reviews with every listener.
Although Kelly's audience is aimed more towards the young female population, it provides for inspirational and soothing music. Kelly's new EP album is the perfect playlist to relax to.
