I'm Tori Morley, a multi-instrumentalist and composer, and I'm super excited to be playing at Sunnyside Summer Nights on August 30!
I've been surrounded by music since I was a kid. Piano was my first love, and by the age of five, I was already tinkering away on the keys. At ten, I picked up the trumpet, and it wasn't long before I composed my very first track, 'Robot Monster' when I was just eight years old. Music has been my artistic hivemind, guiding me toward the stage.
I'm all about creating eclectic musical soundscapes that reflect my experiences as a human being and my frustrations with the world. My music is angsty, but don't worry, I sprinkle it with a wink and a smile.
Drawing inspiration from '90s funk weirdos Primus and experimental bassist MonoNeon, my 2021 single 'Les and His Excavator' strikes a unique balance between melody and discordance. It's a reflection of my punk ethos channeled through my lyrics and vocal delivery.
Teaming up with the talented producer and mentor Kurt Morgan (Dweezil Zappa), I carefully crafted my first full-length album, staying true to my sonic ambience while exploring contemporary sounds. It's been an incredible journey so far, and I'm excited to share my music with all of you at Sunnyside Summer Nights.
See you there!
7:00 - 7:40 PM
With albums that have resonated across North America and even reached the shores of Asia, my music has found its way into the hearts of many.
And guess what?
It's all thanks to the incredible support from fans like you! Your love for my work keeps me inspired to create more and more.
My musical journey has taken me on tours through Canada and unforgettable shows in Pakistan, USA, France, Morocco, and the United Arab Emirates. The road has been an incredible adventure, and I can't wait to share those experiences through my songs.
Speaking of which, have you heard my latest album, "With You"? It's a heartfelt tribute to classic folk music, perfect for fans of the iconic album "Harvest" by the legendary Neil Young. Packed with rich folky vibes and poignant lyrics, the album's lead single, "Harvest Night," is bound to touch your heart.
But there's something truly special about experiencing music live, don't you think? At my shows, we're in this together, and I promise to bring nothing short of energy and emotion to the stage.
So, mark your calendars for August 30, and let's make some musical memories at Sunnyside Summer Nights. I can't wait to see your friendly faces and share my tunes with all of you.
Until then, stay groovy and keep the good vibes flowing!

We are La Santa, a Spanish rock tribute band who found their way to Calgary!
Our crew consists of six talented musicians, and we can't wait to hit the stage and share our love for Spanish rock with all of you.
When we say we play a wave of rhythms in Spanish rock, we mean it! From the upbeat vibes of ska to the soulful sounds of blues, we've got it all covered. You'll also catch us jamming to pop, punk, heavy metal, folk rock, and even some mind-bending psychedelic rock.
Our setlist spans across continents, taking you on a musical journey from Argentina to Mexico and all the way back, crossing the ocean to beautiful Spain.
We understand the power of music to bring people together, and that's exactly what we aim to do at Sunnyside Summer Nights. You'll find yourself grooving, tapping your feet, and maybe even singing along to some of your favorite Spanish rock tunes.
