Up next, TINO will release his new single "Up Against The Wall" digitally on Tuesday, December, 21.

It has been a break-out year for the Pittsburgh-bred, Los Angeles-based 22-year-old singer-songwriter-producer and multi-instrumentalist. TINO has earned fans all over the country by performing on national and local TV and sharing the stage at concerts with Jason Derulo (at the sold-out The Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza), Drake, Train, Iyaz, New Boyz, Mike Posner, Kelly Rowland, Kris Allen, and The Backstreet Boys, among many others. Known for his urgent vocals and flair for sparkling hooks as well as his substantial production chops, US Weekly's Ian Drew noted that TINO was "blowing up the pop scene with his debut Top 40 single, 'Diary'" (7/14/10).
TINO will release his full-length album in spring 2011.
The serious buzz surrounding TINO began this past May when "Diary," landed on over 50 Rhythmic/Top 40 stations in its first week of release, an achievement unrivaled in recent history by any new independent artist. Billboard magazine praised the song: "Despite its themes of betrayal, dissatisfaction and letdown for its lead singer, the song's sticking point is an irresistibly buoyant beat that should keep listeners tuned in and dancing" (6/19/10). "Diary" has logged over 1,000,000 views on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/tinocoury#p/f/2/S83xZjjgu4c.

"When I was thinking about ideas for a second single, I knew I wanted to make a club record. 'Diary' definitely had the catchy lyrics and story that everyone can relate to, but this time I wanted to give my fans a song they could have fun with. 'Up Against The Wall' is really about living in the moment, letting go, and having a great time doing it."
