Press for La Huerta (STUDIO ALBUM, 2017)

"Tori unites force, talent, emotion, and her always innovative spirit. It leaves a lasting impression to hear an American blues singer transform into flamenco compositions by one of Britain's most experimental rock icons, 'Kashmir,' by Led Zepplin. The rest of the songs that Tori has cultivated on this new album, La Huerta, are of the same extremely high caliber." –Ruta66

"When a formula really works, it's worth it to keep exploring it a second time around [with La Huerta]. Without fear and without asking permission. With El Mar (2014), the American singer-songwriter Tori Sparks created something truly excellent… Passionate. Fierce. Powerful. Concepts that are often lost in this world plagued with insipid, soulless music." –DirtyRock

"Tori Sparks is a 'rare bird,' who honed her skills on the Nashville circuit and landed in Barcelona five years ago, with only her guitar for company… the result of this journey is La Huerta, an unclassifiable album that seeks to make the connection between Camarón de la Isla and Led Zeppelin, and against all odds, it does so. A mestizo project with a rock'n'roll soul, which attracts a public and guest artists refreshingly free of hangups." –La Vanguardia

"[Tori Sparks + Calamento] smash traditional concepts of genre, and push the group's daring mix of musical flavors into even further into uncharted territory."TimeOut Barcelona

"Tori Sparks continues to experiment with new sounds without sacrificing the unique combination of styles that won them fans the world over with El Mar." –SoloRock

"First came El Mar (2014), and now, La Huerta, an album in which Tori Sparks crafts a mix between the American singer-songwriter genre with flamenco palos, offering us via her beautiful voice songs born in Chicago and raised up in Nashville with a flavor from the south of Spain. She bravely went all-in in these past few years: Changed country, changed languages, and reinvented her musical style." –El Periodico

"Tori Sparks is almost a flamenco singer. Almost, because she halls from Nashville (Tennessee), the Music City, and doesn't do orthodox flamenco. Her fusion isn't limited just to musical styles; in addition, it boasts various particularities, startingwith the fact that her albums are bilingual (English - Spanish). And live on stage? Emotive, joyful. Full of subtleties, like her music." –Qualsevolnit

"And then there were three guitars, their sound (electric, Spanish, and acoustic) [in La Huerta], all integral to the fusion of styles that they offer… impeccably sung (what a voice!), played and produced." -Rockdelux

"Born in Chicago and toughened up on the Nashville circuit, Tori Sparks was, per se, a name to be reckoned with, an artists to be taken very seriously. But it was through her collaboration with the group Calamento in El Mar (2014) that she rose to the level of a 'must-know' artist for any real music lover. With a courage and strong integrity stemming her artistic conviction, she won me over from the start… In La Huerta, Tori Sparks reinforces the emotional web she move with El Mar, though with even more energy and poise, if that's possible. A torrential force that enchants and caresses with its almost animal sensuality. La Huerta is, in short, a great place to get lost for an hour. " –RockSesion

"American rock and blues singer-songwriter Tori Sparks, who left Nashville for Barcelona five years ago, presents us with her sixth album, La Huerta (2017), where she continues to experiment and push the musical envelope. Her concert with the full band in Clamores promises to be an unforgettable night. You don't want to miss it!" –TimeOut Madrid

"The North American singer Tori Sparks, settled in Barcelona for five years now, has demonstrated time and time again that she is not daunted, not by anyone or anything... With a powerful, personal, expressive voice that rings out clear and unencumbered, guitars that leap across the aural spectrum from acoustic to electric, and arrangements that mix fusion with flamenco, make this album a Pandora's box of delightful surprises." –Diario Abierto

"To get up there on stage is, definitively, to open yourself and your style up to public scrutiny -- it's to take a risk and bare your soul, and this is definitely the case in a Tori Sparks concert.  The arrangements… speak with a sound of their own, infused with incomparable golden voice of Tori... it's precisely this kind of cultural hybrid that allows music to grow, to evolve, discovering new sonic landscapes."  –Free World

"With a warm and elegant sound and a dead-on choice of material… in La Huerta we find an artist in her full glory who is on the scene to stay. Without a doubt one of the strong points of the album is its impeccable production by Sparks herself, which paints in light and shadow every detail of a great creative journey, at times recalling the magnificent work of Javier Limón with the singer Andrés Calamaro… Icaro Lavia wrote about [Sparks'] album release concert in Barcelona: "Tori Sparks sings with that made-in-America attitude that causes her to seem like the empress of the whole world."  Amén." –Muzikalia

"An American woman who heads a flamenco fusion band in Barcelona, who even attempts her own versions of Led Zepplin's 'Kashmir' or the almost untouchable song 'La Leyenda Del Tiempo,' forever associated with the cantaor Camarón? Admittedly, the reviewer was skeptical, but from the first notes of the album [La Huerta], the sixth by singer-songwriter Tori Sparks, I was happy to stand corrected... the skillful instrumentation makes even her cover songs more powerful than their original versions."Folker

“Many have attempted to fuse rock and flamenco, they have worn themselves out trying, and have failed. The fact than an American is forging a clear new path in this complicated direction is both daring and respectable at the same time… an interesting tightrope walk… traditional details… blues and rock… very good.”  –Sound and Image
