Artist Review: Tory and Tia

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Two girls. Two voices. Twice the talent. And one hell of a presence.

With that being said, this dynamic duo needs no introduction. Their notoriety earned our praise long ago; and for more than good reason. 

Tory and Tia are two eye-catching teenage sisters with a driven sound, personality, with vocal harmonies that only siblings could create. First thing very notable is their young age. These Pacific-Islanders have a very exotic look to their jazzy, vintage, fun-summer look and portray all the right elements that sisters should when grasping the music industry at such a young age–and are also the daughters of legendary Ukelele player Troy Fernandez; which gives the notion of music being in the family genes. The media even deemed them “Born to Perform” after an 8 and 10 year old Tory and Tia performed live for the first time. And this musical heritage can clearly be heard in their material.

Their track “So Solo” is a fun-filled song that could easily fit into any upbeat movie soundtrack, or any Hollywood-style foreground in need of something charismatic and ear-catchy. Though being a short song, this song gives a brilliant demonstration of what these ridiculously talented sisters can conjure up with their range of on-spot harmonization and fun-quirkiness making them even more worth your time. They also have a colorful Official Music Video for this song on YouTube you need to check out. Their personas are everything you expect plus more. This song will definitely sell you immediately. On October 26th, this song hit CHR and Top 40 Radio.

“Tell it to My Heart” shows another brilliant style to these girls. Swaying on the verge of a love song, but still has that same signature fun-loving feel and charisma shown by its predecessor. The production value perfectly fits the look and sound these songs give off, as well as the image both girls portray. 

The girls are not playing any games here–after their family made a move to Los Angeles on behalf of the girls’ musical talent and visions, they have a powerhouse of Producers and Management making sure these girls shoot straight for super-stardom; including Johnny Vieira of J.V.M. and Qadree El Amin of Southpaw Entertainment, who helped guide the careers of Janet Jackson and Boyz II Men. With their talent combined with this team backing them, their shine in the business is inevitable–and has already been demonstrated. I personally can’t wait to see what the very near-future holds for these girls. Mahalo!
