TORICA is an American singer-songwriter, born and raised in Columbia, SC, who spent her childhood nurturing her passion for writing poetry, while singing in church and high school chorus. Eventually she began performing in and winning local talent shows, helping her develop skills for captivating an audience.
After college, Torica headed to Atlanta to pursue her music dreams, within a year she landed a major label feature on the Billboard chart topping, Grammy nominated hit, Sick of Being Lonely with MCA/Geffen rap duo, Field Mob.
Life became a whirlwind of touring, press, video shoots, and national performances on stages, like Jimmy Kimmel Live and Soul Train. Torica also began to emerge as a songwriter and found herself in the studio with some of music’s biggest names. After inking a publishing deal with Warner Chappell, Torica wrote All I Know for Monica’s Still Standing album.
A twist of social media fate led Torica to meet music producer AOne Beats via twitter. Within a year, AOne signed her to his imprint AOne Music Group (AMG).
In late summer 2012, AMG released her debut album, A Beautiful Mess, which tells the story of a young woman who wants to be loved for who she is. The album is collection of R&B, Pop-Soul songs about falling in love, heartbreak, enjoying life, and accepting yourself, which Torica wants to resonate with people worldwide, especially women
“I think all women are superheroes in their own right and I feel like I’m the girl who can identify with every girl. I’ve been in love, I’ve been hurt, I’m juggling a career, I’m a mother, I’m making strides in a male-dominated industry, I’m my own boss, and I’m doing it humbly and gracefully in high heels. When women come to my shows and buy my music, I want them to feel like I’m reading their mind and singing about what’s really going in their lives and I want to give men a better understanding of us…I’m every woman…” -Torica
