    Changed My Entire Musical Life

    I've been a musician for years. I've also produced over 300 bands or so -mostly heavy stuff. When I first heard Little Earthquakes, I was completely in love with her music. The sound of her Bosendorfer is incredible! She is by far the most talented musician I have ever heard. Can...

    She Isn't Just a Great Singer

    I've wondered why I am so fascinated with Tori's voice and lyrics. Certainly there are many who are her equal. But then I realized Tori has accomplished something far more greater than an unusally talented career. Tori has escaped. When I am reminded of the dreary confines of...

    She'S Brilliant. A brilliant artist

    I love her music. I love her style. Her cheek at times. She's cheeky and irreverent and has a great sense of humour, whimsical. And I really love her piano playing. So expressive and it's enough to bring me to tears at times. Just a great artist and musician and singer and writer...

    Its Been A Long Time - Tori Memories

    I have to admit, it has been a very long time since I sat down and listened to Tori Amos - in fact, I don't even own an album after Boys for Pele (I know, I am sure a sin in the eyes of many of you) ... Tori and I grew apart - I still love "Little Earthquakes" as it rose at a...

    I Like Tori Amos

    When I was younger I had heard Tori from a friend. I bought the CD Little Earthquakes. I would listen to her songs over and over. I think she is a very talented artist. Her voice is beautiful and she looks like an angel.
