The unique and uncompromising artistry of Tori Amos laid the groundwork for the female singer-songwriter phenomenon of the mid to late '90s. Her stunning 1992 debut, Little Earthquakes, introduced her haunting and emotive voice and lyrical storytelling with an intensity that was astounding. She brought the piano back to the forefront of cutting-edge rock, and over the course of her daring career became one of the most influential artists of her time. Intimate, confessional, poetic, Amos' songs touch on self, family, religion, femininity, pain, and love with a searching spirit.
