"First Listen: Setoria goes long on "Shorty""

Singer, songwriter, model and radio host Setoria made a name for herself in the Washington DC area with the band N-Touch as well as other bands, singing everything from jazz to go-go to soul. She possesses a big, powerful voice that can cover a wide variety of styles, and she shows that versatility on her first single, “Shorty.”

Setoria describes the song one that “vividly relays a true story of a woman who flaunts her independence in a night club by politely introducing herself to a man whom she finds attractive.” It has a great vibe and Setoria gives it just the right amount of flirtiness.

“Shorty” will be featured in an upcoming independent film by April Reign Productions, Love Him or Leave Him, slated for the Summer of 2015.............
