Biography

Singer. Songwriter. Vocal Arranger. Vocal Producer.

Torica from a very young age has always had the uncanny ability to get people's attention, it just so happened that she was blessed with the gift of song. Upon moving to Atlanta in 2001, within a year, she landed a feature on DTP/Geffen recording artist Field Mob's first single, titled "Sick of Being Lonely," produced by Jazze Pha. The radio friendly hit with its huge commercial success resulted in award nominations (Soul Train Music, Grammy, Source, Billboard Music, Vibe) and several performances on nationally and internationally known radio, print and television media outlets, such as, BET (106th & Park, Spring Bling, Top Video Countdowns) MTV (TRL, Direct Efx, MTV.COM), MTV2 (MTV2.COM), VH-1, JIMMY KIMMEL SHOW, SOUL TRAIN, SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO), and in the Source, XXL, Vibe magazines. The single spent several weeks topping the Billboard charts and dominating Top 40 Radio. Holding the number one spot on urban and pop stations throughout the country just increased her desire to want more, do more, and be more. The RIAA Certified Gold success of Field Mob's album culminated into Torica appearing on the following releases: Gucci Mane's Trap House, Jermaine Dupri's Young, Fly & Flashy Compilation Vol. 1, Maceo's Straight Out Da Pot, and Teairra Mari's Roc-A-Fella presents Teairra Mari, thus, yielding Torica's contribution to over 1 million record sales, all of which she achieved without a record deal. She is currently between Atlanta, LA, NY, & Miami working with super producers & writers, Mike City, Frontline Boyz (Tyrese-Headquarter Ent.), The Stereotypes (MH-Wonderful), K-Fam, Khao (T.I.), Polow da Don, Andrea Remanda (Golden Globe Nominee), Infinity (Mary J.

Additionally, she's co-penned Wideworld Ent. artist Rosco's "I Wish I Could," which she is also appears on. She wants to thank all her supporters/industry colleagues and encourages anyone pursuing a dream that, "the only limit in life is the one you put on yourself, it is not enough to just dream, you have to live it, breathe it, work hard for it, and your dream will become reality."
