Pop - Released January 29, 2016 | Tori Kelly

Improbably combining the heartfelt optimism of Taylor Swift with the literate soulfulness of Alicia Keys and the melismatic virtuosity of Mariah Carey, Tori Kelly's full-length album, 2015's Unbreakable Smile, is a thrilling, positive-minded debut. Although Kelly had been an active performer since she was a child, appearing on America's Most Talented Kids and even walking away from a recording contract with Geffen when she was just 12 years old, it wasn't until she struck out on her own as an adult that she began gaining wider recognition. In fact, it was getting booted off American Idol in 2010 that ultimately set her down the creative path toward writing her own songs and recording Unbreakable Smile. Produced by Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson, P!nk, Ellie Goulding), Unbreakable Smile finds Kelly expanding upon the stripped-down vibe of her initial EPs, 2012's Handmade Songs and 2013's Foreward, with a set of emotive, well-crafted songs that straddle the line between melodic rock and contemporary R&B, and acoustic singer/songwriter pop. Part of what makes Kelly so extraordinary is that, while being a truly gifted vocalist (she has perfect pitch), she's also an adept guitarist and songwriter who works as her own best accompanist. As her acoustic EPs proved, she almost doesn't need a producer, let alone a mega-producer like Martin, to knock your socks off. Nor does she need the help of saccharine Brit Ed Sheeran, although his presence dueting on "I Was Made for Loving You" only serves to back up the notion that Kelly is a knockout vocalist. In fact, one of the best tracks on Unbreakable Smile isn't even a full track, but just the album's 1:27 intro number, "Where I Belong." An acoustic, heartfelt declaration of grounded self-awareness, it's a low-key yet absolutely stunning way for Kelly to kick things off and sets you up perfectly for what's to come. And though she immediately dives headlong into a sonically juicy, old-school '90s R&B-inspired aesthetic, she never gets overwhelmed by the production. On the contrary, cuts like the summery, Janet Jackson-esque title track, the funky, Brand New Heavies-sounding "Expensive," and the hypnotic, unrequited relationship anthem "Should've Been Us" are universally relatable, utterly infectious songs that you immediately want to hear again. Ultimately, Unbreakable Smile illustrates Kelly's struggles to remain true to her own astute, artistic vision in the face of an industry that often seems to exhibit a perplexing mistrust of real, organic talent.

Pop - Released January 1, 2013 | Tori Kelly

Tori Kelly was barely into her teens when she began writing and recording her own songs in her bedroom in Southern California, and at 19, she self-released an EP, Handmade Songs. In 2012, Kelly also recorded a cover of Frank Ocean's "Thinkin' Bout You" that racked up over 17 million views on YouTube. With 2013's Foreword, Kelly makes her major-label debut with a set of five songs that add a new sophistication to her sound without interfering with her subtle, emotionally expressive power as a vocalist and songwriter. © TiVo

Following her breakthrough 2015 debut album, Unbreakable Smile, singer/songwriter Tori Kelly reconnected with her Christian roots and issued the Grammy-winning 2018 gospel follow-up Hiding Place. However, in the wake of those successes, she endured a series of losses. Her 2018 marriage to basketball player André Murillo was a romantic bright spot in a year that saw her endure the death of her grandfather and witness the divorce of her parents. Kelly brings all of these experiences to bear on her emotionally raw third full-length album, 2019's Inspired by True Events. Working with producers Jimmy Napes and Noel Zancanella, Kelly leans into her roller-coaster year, transforming moments of heartache and elation into riveting pop anthems. The results are certainly catchy, as on the yearning "2 Places" and delicately attenuated "Pretty Fades," both of which find Kelly showcasing her rich vocals against a subtle backdrop of woody acoustic guitars and nuanced percussion grooves. In fact, one of the more notable aspects of Inspired by True Events is just how stripped down and minimal it is. It's a sound that Kelly, also an adept guitarist, has favored since her 2013 Foreward EP, and one that complements the naked emotions on display. Nonetheless, there are still some more enveloping arrangements sprinkled throughout, as on the dusky "Kid I Used to Know," in which Kelly evokes a '70s orchestral soul vibe as she reflects on her desire to recapture the breezy enthusiasm of her childhood. Similarly, on the impassioned "Until I Think of You" she frames herself with strings and a vibrant gospel choir. She keeps things similarly understated elsewhere, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar for the relationship drama "Sorry Would Go a Long Way," and weaving in warm organ and choral accents on her homage to her late grandfather, "Your Words." Also adding to the album's organic, personalized tone are several sound clips culled from Kelly's home movies, including one with her father just after her birth in 1992, and one from 1997 featuring an irrepressible five-year-old Kelly talking to her mother about wanting to sing. All of this makes for a heartfelt listen and one that balances Kelly's talent for matching pop hooks with a winning sense of honesty. © Matt Collar /TiVo

Falling somewhere between Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas and Kelly Clarkson's Wrapped in Red, A Tori Kelly Christmas is pure comfort and joy for the holiday season. Injecting warmth with R&B and soul, producer Babyface assists Kelly in updating timeless standards such as "Silent Night," "Joy to the World/Joyful, Joyful," and "O Holy Night," while offering new additions to the Christmas catalog with the jazzy "25th" and "Gift That Keeps on Giving." He even lends his smooth vocals to an appropriately jaunty take on "Let It Snow." More modern classics from Donny Hathaway ("This Christmas") and Mariah Carey ("All I Want for Christmas Is You") are also featured. © Neil Z. Yeung /TiVo
