Tori Amos

Tori Amos is a Grammy-nominated singer, composer, and pianist whose 17-album catalog has sold more than 12 million copies — including her 1992 debut Little Earthquakes, 1994’s Under The Pink featuring the worldwide hit “Cornflake Girl,” and the 1996 album Boys For Pele featuring the UK chart-topper “Professional Widow.”

Over the years, Amos has released recordings on the renowned classical label Deutsche Grammophon, for whom her label debut Night of Hunters won an Echo Klassik Award in 2012 — and with which she also made history by becoming the first woman to have a top 10 album on the US Billboard charts in the classical, alternative, and rock categories simultaneously. It was followed by the orchestral album Gold Dust in 2012, and then Unrepentant Geraldines in 2014 — Amos’ eighth Billboard top 10 album.

In 2015, Amos produced the original cast recording of The Light Princess, the musical adaption of the Scottish fairytale by George MacDonald, for which she wrote the music and lyrics. Two years later, in 2017, she released the critically-acclaimed Native Invader — another Billboard top 10 album. In addition to her Echo Award, she has received eight Grammy Award nominations, as well as five MTV VMA nominations, and was listed on VH1’s “100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll” in 1999.

Amos has frequently used her music to bring attention to numerous social campaigns regarding sexuality, feminism, politics, and religion. Amos played an integral role in the foundation of the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) — a crisis hotline for sexual abuse victims. She served as its spokesperson for many years and has continued to work with the organization throughout her career.
