Toni Romiti is a singer from Chicago with a sound that is a unique fusion of R&B vocals with a raw hip-hop influence. While Toni was playing college basketball, her first song gained major traction. That first song now has over 80 million plays online, and Toni has continued to build on her music catalogue. Toni chose music over basketball, and she moved to Los Angeles in 2016. Toni's songwriting often includes themes of female empowerment and gender role-reversals. As a completely independent artist, Toni has built her fan-base organically from the ground up.
Kora The Artist was born in North Carolina but relocated to southeast WashingtonD.C. early in life. Kora has always had a fascination with entertaining. As a young girl she would line up her dolls and stuffed animals and organize elaborate performances in her bedroom. She would imagine she was singing in front of large arenas of clamoring fans engrossed in every note she sang. Initially inspired by Britney Spears, Kora would spend hours watching her music videos emulating dance moves and music riffs. Kora always had a deep connection with not only her own emotions but the emotions of others as well. She truly developed her sense of musical direction while her father went through rehabilitation for drug abuse. Kora was raised primarily by her mother and had limited visitation with her father. She cherished her visits withhim because they were not often. He would play Erykah Badu’s “Baduizm” album on repeat. Kora would watch his struggle and correlate his emotions with each song she heard. The music became a soundtrack to their time together. It was a time that shaped her tremendously.
Kora decided then she identified most with strong and fearless women who made bold choices and were not afraid to be unique. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Jhene Aiko, Sade and of course Erykah Badu influenced Kora to create a sound that encompassed luscious melodies and gentle tones with hard-hitting beats, synthesizers and daring lyrics. Stylist Ariana Soleil helped Kora develop an edgy look that highlighted her unique personality, focusing on bold color and avant-garde textures and prints.
With supreme adoration, love, financial backing and undying support from her mother Kora set out to make her mark on the world. Her first public musical recognition was her sophomore year of college at University of Maryland College Park. Kora performed her single “Sick Of Love” at a Battle Of The Voices event. Though she did not take home first place she was elated with the crowd reception and proud of her dedication to prepare and display true artistry.
Filled with confidence from her first performance Kora went on to sing at BET Music Matters competition at SOB’s in New York City. Shortly after, Kora met producer/engineer Dave Knocks. Dave became one of Kora’s biggest blessings. He believed in her music and her dreams. They decided to merge talents to create an unmatched sound. Dave Knocks executive produced Kora’s new album Vertigo. The album focuses on relationships and love issues and is now available on her SoundCloud.
Kora’s aspiration is to acquire richness in aspects of wealth, charity, philanthropy, activism and love. Her whole purpose is to cultivate something in her image to live on and positively influence the masses.
