Tori Sparks

Album Title: Rivers + Roads
Release Date: 2004
Genre: singer/songwriter
Armed with a sexy, sultry voice, and an obvious love of the blues, it's odd to think that American singer/songwriter Tori Sparks is of the same generation as Ashlee Simpson and Norah Jones. Infinitely better than one, Sparks still lags miles behind the other. If anyone needs explanation of which is which, this is the moment when the music world sheds a collective tear. Anyhoo, while Sparks is on the right path with her music, it still resides smack dab in the middle of the road: on one side lies a huge audience, on the other critical acclaim. There are hundreds, possibly thousands of artists in Sparks' situation and none of them are particularly bad, and neither is Sparks. The young songstress definitely has her high moments, like "Red Letter Day" where her Tori Amos-like vocals are accompanied by a well-placed violin. There are miles to go before Sparks catches fire on either side of the musical road, but with the right winds, she could find herself blown right out of the middle.
