Description: Performing in bars and clubs since the age of 13, Tori Amos has since evolved into one of the most respected and inspiring live performers. Touring relentlessly since 1991, the stage has always been one of the fundamentals of her career. Rolling Stone voted her one of the best live performers of all time.
Tori will be releasing a new album, Night of Hunters, her first record since 2009's Abnormally Attracted to Sin, this September. The album will have a markedly classical thrust to it.
"I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story," Amos says. "The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter." All this sounds very much like a rock opera, so we can only hope for some good interstitial spoken-word acting scenes.
