Tori Amos, North Carolina's sensational alternative pop and rock artist is bringing her signature sounds to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall!
Tori Amos was born in Newton (North Carolina) in 1963 and is a singer (with a mezzo-soprano vocal range), songwriter, pianist, and composer. Her musical style is best described as a blend of indie rock (a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United States and the United Kingdom in the 1980s, encapsulating the genres chamber pop, indie pop, lo fi, math rock, neo psychedelia, post punk revival, sadcore, and shoegaze) and adult alternative pop/rock (a branch of alternative rock - emerging after the genre's absorption into the mainstream – featuring a smooth, melodic, radio friendly style that packages alternative's mellower side for wider consumption). She's had a stellar career with 14 studio albums, 2 live albums, 3 compilation albums, 8 video albums, 28 music videos, 5 extended plays, 40 singles, and her music has been featured on the soundtrack of many films. She's also collaborated with Tom Jones, Ferron, Fatboy Slim, David Byrne, and many other renowned artists. She's received many accolades including an Echo Klassik Award, a Q Award (for Best new Act), 2 Brit Award nominations (for International Breakthrough Act and Best International Female), and 8 Grammy Award nominations.
