Tori Tullier is an award-winning songwriter based in Nashville, TN originally from Annapolis, MD. She is the recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Sammy Cahn Lyric Writing Award for her solely-penned song "Nicotine." Past winners of the award include John Mayer, Lori McKenna, Josh Ritter and Katie Herzig. Her songs have landed on US and Canadian radio with cuts by Tenille Arts, Stephanie Quayle, Tim Hicks (with Lindsay Ell), Emma White, Brittany Kennell and more. She has also had recent success with placements in an ad campaign for YouTube, and in the 2021 major motion picture, “The Mauritanian.” Tori has performed at Tin Pan South, the Annapolis Songwriters Festival, Gatlinburg Songwriters Fest, and Nashville in the Northwest, along with several Bluebird Cafe appearances. As a musician she has accompanied several artists, most recently gracing the historic Grand Ole Opry stage while performing with frequent collaborator, Stephanie Quayle. While attending the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, Tori took first place in the Bruce Hornsby Songwriting competition. Taking a chapter from the classic Nashville story -- after spending a decade writing for other artists -- in 2020 she returned to writing on her own, savoring the impromptu sessions alone at night with just her and her piano, and maybe a glass of red. Born from those sessions, her debut EP Baby Steps, formally introduces the world to one of Nashville’s best kept secrets.
