Los Angeles residing emcee Torrian Ball delivers his fifteen-track body of work Philophobia. The album dives deep into our basic human fear of being vulnerable enough to fall in love and can be best described as a sonic reflection of Torrian’s past trials, traumas, and most importantly his triumph. Torrian Ball is carrying momentum from Dash Radio interview, the announcement of upcoming U.S. tour dates, and his thought-provoking visual for the album's leading single Numb, which consciously closed out National Suicide Prevention Week.
The definition of Philophobia via ClevelandClinic.org is a fear of love. The fear of love can get so intense that a person can find it difficult, at times, almost impossible to create and sustain loving relationships. Including the aforementioned quick strike, title track record, Quad Cities, and Peace of Mind, the self-proclaimed 'King of Relatable Rap' covers how he experiences that fear in songs like Grown Man Cry, Therapy, and Forgiveness. Philophobia includes additional vocals from Todd Zach Jr., Xavy Rusan, and TJ; who makes two appearances.
The Midwest MC entered the rap game at the young age of 14, after being discovered by Chicago Hip Hop legend Twista, who offered him a spot on his tour after witnessing him rap during a contest that was being held between opening acts at one of his shows. That moment became a catalyst for greater things to come. He has performed hundreds of shows across the country, from hitting the stage at SXSW, to VitaminWater / The FADER’s Uncapped Live Series, to opening for artists such as 2 Chainz, T-Pain, Chief Keef, Lil Durk, Omarion, Chance The Rapper, Trina, and Common.
