Hailing from the beach cities of Southern California, V Torres has spent her entire life in or around music and sports. While in high school, indie-rock and hip-hop became her passion and basketball gave her the drive to persevere through adversity. Torres went on to attend Loyola Marymount University majoring in accounting and minoring in theatre arts. Upon graduation, Torres moonlighted as a corporate finance accountant to fund her musical career.
To date, she has spent the majority of her career writing and performing with the band Gorgeous Got a Gun, and released their self-titled debut album in 2009, followed by Welcome Home in 2011 and single release I Remember You in 2016. During this time, Torres’ music video for song Violent Games was featured on the blue ray release for the feature film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Since then, V Torres has performed throughout the country while collaborating and recording with various artists and producers including Joe McGrath (AFI, Alkaline Trio) and most recently Jonny Perdue and Steve Stout of Lost Beach.
Backed by a newfound love of yoga and a desire to share her truth, Torres infused a fresh energy and sound into her latest project, five song EP Real Life Love. Leveraging life’s highs & lows, this project is inspired by the sense of urgency she has never lost throughout the years. Like any singer-songwriter, V Torres’ music has matured while continuing to effectively convey her experiences and emotions.
