NASHVILLE, TN (Friday, Dec. 3)…Singer/songwriter, Tori Tullier, announces the release of her debut single “Things I Won’t Forget” from her forthcoming EP, Baby Steps. Tullier is the winner of the ASCAP Sammy Cahn Lyric Writing Award for her solely penned “Nicotine,” with past winners including John Mayer and Lori McKenna. After nearly a decade of writing for other artists in Nashville, this release affirms a new chapter for her as an artist.
Produced by Justin Klump at The Woodshed, the song features an eclectic mix of honest lyrics, pure vocals, piano, cello, and banjo, depicting a bittersweet synopsis of an expired relationship. “I knew that when I wrote this song it would have to be me that put it out, because the lyrics are so specific to my experience. For an introvert songwriter, who is used to other people singing the songs I write with them, it was a tad terrifying,” Tullier shares.
Tullier’s success as a writer has extended to songs on US and Canadian country radio, as well as sync placements for ad campaigns with YouTube Music and the 2021 major motion picture, “The Mauritanian.” The shift towards putting out something under her own name was definitely a transition.
In 2020 she returned to writing on her own; keeping up her Nashville co-writing schedule, but savoring the impromptu sessions alone at night with just her and her piano, and maybe a glass of red. The end result is Baby Steps, a 6 song EP coming in 2022.
“I knew I could either let these songs sit on a computer where they’d never get heard, or do something about it. This time, I chose to do something about it. ‘Things I Won’t Forget’ is the first single from my coming EP, and I’m so excited for people to hear it.”
