PRESS FOR WAIT NO MORE
"In these times of uncertainty and half-measures, it is a beautiful thing to come face to face to an artist who has a clear vision. Someone who is not afraid to be unique, who goes all-in, who does not waver in defending his or her art. Tori Sparks is one of those people, and for this reason the subtitle of her new album, Wait No More: The Live Album, has value in itself. This is not a live album. It's THE live album... A lean, taught LP with no filler, in which [Sparks] combines diverse musical styles with style, grit, and pure inspiration.”
-Alfred Crespo, Ruta66
“A flawless live album with a clear, rich sound... as composer and performer, [Sparks] has crafted a unique and unusual fusion.”
-Esteban Linés, La Vanguardia
"The American singer-songwriter Tori Sparks, who sings both in English and Spanish, is a perfect example of how diversity enriches rock and roll. Not only does this album showcase the power of her voice and her strength as a live performer… she approaches her material with sensuality, mystery and sexuality. "
-Luis Picabia, El Diario Abierto
"It is definitely worth paying attention to the evolution of Tori Sparks: an American singer and guitarist who has been living in Barcelona since 2011, who has developed her own universe of sound, combining her rock, blues and folk roots with with Latin and flamenco influences. She is daring, and forges her own richly creative musical path, though what stands out above all is the pure charisma of Tori Sparks herself. In these times of disposable music and childish performers, her mature voice, her vivid presence onstage — wearing a theatrical red dress, which is the perfect color to accompany her intensity — she never goes too far over the top in her theatricality, but brings a fresh, genuine energy to the stanzas of both her original songs and classic tunes. A revelatory night for an artist who is both delicate and wild.“
-Jordi Bianciotto, El Periodico
"There are dates that absolutely must be marked on the calendar, and the live recording of a Tori Sparks album is one of those dates.… [Tori] pulled put all the stops, displaying all her artistry and that of a band that is worth its weight in gold... The new song 'Wait' No More’ was the most special moment of the impressive evening."
-Federico Navarro, Popular1
"The American singer Tori Sparks offered up a very special concert at Barcelona’s Luz de Gas on September 14th… Listening to the record, we will undoubtedly remember the evening in which Sparks bewitched an audience that reveled in her music as if there were no tomorrow… [Sparks] has created a combination of sounds that is so natural, this artist born in Chicago but who is at the same time an authentic Barcelonian — this whole city has fallen in love with her. Sublime."
-Manual Alférez, La Hormigonera Rock
"Title track “Wait No More” is a great song, the crown jewel of an album which contains 20 songs of different rhythms and styles, but which all fit perfectly together both thematically and musically… Highly recommended."
-Jose Lopez, No Solo Cine
