About Torrey McDowell What began as a love of choir and music in her youth ultimately blossomed into a passion for artist Torrey McDowell. In second grade, Torrey began songwriting and went on to earn a vocal performance scholarship to continue her musical passions at Piedmont University. Beyond the walls of academia, the Georgia-native’s musical mission became focused on healing, growth and empowerment. Torrey’s music creates a safe haven for music fans who seek comfort from the tough moments in life, serving as the truth and encouragement she needed herself just years ago. Through battling depression, overcoming an abusive relationship and owning her identity as a part of the LGBTQ+ community, Torrey draws inspiration from all corners of the musical spectrum. Some of her influences include JoJo, Jennifer Hudson, Kelsea Ballerini, Sam Smith and other cross-genre artists. Now based in Nashville, Torrey debuted her message-driven EP in June 2023 and is actively booking local and regional performances. Stay tuned for more on this rising star’s horizon!
