Tori Amos was bornon 22 August 1963 in Newton, American, is Musician and Singer. Tori Amos is an American pianist, singer-songwriter and composer. This hugely talented recording artist is a classically trained musician who is known in the music circuits for being one of the few alternative rock singers to use a piano as her primary instrument. From her early work in a band to a noteworthy solo career, she has had an immensely successful career and has achieved great heights in the world of music. She has never let her challenges, her own rebelliousness, creative or financial disagreements, or a record label’s avarice, stand in the way of composing music in her own unique style. From recording in a church and using gospel choirs and drum programming, to incorporating bagpipes, harpsichord, harmonium, etc., her albums have thrown a curveball at the mainstream audience, and never failed to surprise and delight them. The lyrical content of her later works is so powerful and confrontational that it’s said to help women deal with abuse and the ensuing emotional trauma of misogyny. While the fond listener grows fonder of her music, the critics are busy praising the intensity and uniqueness of her work. The theme of her many works ranges from American history, pornography, homophobia to religion and politics.
