"I've always been inspired by visual artists of all mediums because, as with Music, Art is not a job you can go to and leave from; but it is something that defines who and what you are."
"Well, some songs I think work better in a live context than others. They just do... Matty looked at me, the drummer this is, and he said, "I miss the people. I miss the people clapping to the rhythm."
"From in the shadow she calls. And in the shadow she finds a way, finds a way. And in the shadow she crawls, clutching her faded photograph. My image under her thumb. Yes with a message for my heart."
"When you stop putting yourself on the line, and you don't touch your own heart, how do you expect to touch other people?"
The Tori Store is where you can find the latest Tori Amos merchandise! You'll find an array of t-shirts, CDs, live performance DVDs, jewlery, key chains, concert programs and much more!
"The songs on Native Invader are being pushed by the Muses to find different ways of facing unforeseen challenges and in some cases dangerous conflicts. The record looks to Nature and how, through resilience, she heals herself. The songs also wrestle with the question: what is our part in the destruction of our land, as well as ourselves, and in our relationships with each other?
In life there can be the shock of unexpected fires, floods, earthquakes, or any cataclysmic ravager - both on the inside and outside of our minds. Sonically and visually, I wanted to look at how Nature creates with her opposing forces, becoming the ultimate regenerator through her cycles of death and re-birth. Time and time again she is able to renew, can we find this renewal for ourselves?"

In the US with its debut at #7, it marks the 8th time a Tori record has charted in the Top Ten on Billboard.
"When I spent time on tour with Tori Amos a decade ago, collaborating with her on a book, I'd see her invoke the four elements many nights before her band would take the stage. This was a focusing ritual, taken up to remind everyone that the process of making music is, metaphorically, part solid, skillful Earth; part responsive, adaptive Water; part imaginative Air; and part passionate Fire. Amos thinks in such deep structural terms, always considering how her compositions and performances come together from the underlying layers outward." - Read More

Rosalie Craig, Princess Althea nominated for Best Musical Performance. http://bit.ly/HLb6EF

THE LIGHT PRINCESS is a dark fairytale about grief, rebellion and the power of love.
Once in opposing kingdoms lived a princess and a prince who had lost their mothers. Althea, unable to cry, became light with grief and floated, and so was locked away. Digby became so heavy-hearted that he could never smile, and so was trained as a warrior.
One day, he declares war. Althea is forced out of hiding and down to ground but, in defiance of her father, she escapes, only to encounter the solemn prince on contested land. Beside a lake the warring heirs begin a passionate and illicit affair. But for Althea to find real love, she must first confront the world.s darkness and face her own deepest fears.
Today I learned of the very sad news that Peter Rauhofer has passed away suddenly.
I will always hold a very special place in my heart for Peter and his remixes of "Flavor".
He truly captured the spirit of the song and helped create a #1 Dance Club Record
I am sending send my love and thoughts to his family and friends at this very sad time.

A NEWLY ARRANGED &
CELEBRATING 20 YEARS AND SPANNING
THE ENTIRE TORI SONGBOOK
FEATURING THE METROPOLE ORCHESTRA
TO BE RELEASED OCTOBER 2012
Tori has re-imagined a personally hand-picked collection of songs spanning her entire catalogue with the thirteenth studio album, Gold Dust. Produced by Tori with arrangements by long-time collaborator John Philip Shenale, the new album features re-workings of songs in orchestral settings, which Tori recorded in the studio with the renowned Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley.
"My relationship with all of these songs has changed over the years and they have changed my life. So it wasn't just about capturing the past it was about realizing that the songs had a new narrative now - 10 or 20 years later than they did when I originally recorded them," Tori comments.
Tori will also be doing a very limited number of amazing orchestral shows.
Oct 1 -- Rotterdam
Oct 2 -- Brussels
Oct 3 -- London

Tori Amos' New Deutsche Grammophon CD Night of Hunters Makes Billboard History
#1 Classical Crossover, #1 Classical Overall Debut; Top 10 Alternative & Rock Charts
Check out Tori's set list for the first Night of Hunters tour date in Helsinki, Finland. We will also be posting set lists in the Night of Hunters 'Tour' section after each show, so be sure to check them out!
In celebration of the general release of Tori's Limited Edition DVD at major retailers (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, and Borders), we are pleased to announce a slideshow of never-before-seen photos from Tori's special Artists Den concert - and a new video of "Concertina" from the show - available for viewing at www.theartistsden.com/toriamos.
On a cold December night in New York City, Tori Amos played a private solo concert for one hundred fans at the historic Park Avenue Armory, an immense historical landmark built in the late 19th century as both a military facility and a social club. Described as "Greek, Moresque, and Celtic with a dash of the Egyptian, the Persian, and the Japanese," the Armory's ornate Veterans Room provided a fitting setting for Tori's intimate performance.
Tori Amos: Live from the Artists Den captures this once-in-a-lifetime performance featuring both hits and fan favorites spanning Tori's catalogue, from her 1991 debut Little Earthquakes to her 2009 album Abnormally Attracted to Sin - including two songs not shown in the television broadcast.
Tori Amos is a founding member of and has been one of the main spokeswoman for The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE. RAINN also publicizes the hotline's free, confidential services, educates the public about sexual assault, and leads national efforts to improve services to victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.
