Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From her critically acclaimed 1992 debut, Little Earthquakes, to the recent hit, Scarlet’ s Walk, Tori Amos has been a formidable force in contemporary music, with one of the most dedicated fan bases in the industry. In Tori Amos: Piece by Piece, the singer herself takes readers beyond the mere facts, explaining the specifics of her creative process— how her songs go from ideas and melodies to recordings and passionately performed concert pieces.

Written with acclaimed music journalist Ann Powers, Tori Amos: Piece by Piece is a firsthand account of the most intricate and intimate details of Amos’ s life as both a private individual and a very public performing musician. In passionate and informative prose, Amos explains how her songs come to her and how she records and then performs them for audiences everywhere, all the while connecting with listeners across the world and maintaining her own family life (which includes raising a young daughter). But it is also much more, a verbal collage made by two strong female voices – and the voices of those closest to Amos— that calls upon genealogy, myth, and folklore to express Amos’ s unique and fascinating personal history. In short, we see the pieces that make up – as Amos herself puts it— “ the woman we call Tori.”

With photos taken especially for this book by the photographer Loren Haynes, Tori Amos: Piece by Piece is a rare treat for both Tori listeners and newcomers alike, a look into the heart and mind of an extraordinary musician.

Synopsis:

This is the matching folio to Tori Amos' sprawling and ambitious 9th studio album that debuted at at number five on the US charts, spawning the hit single Big Wheel. Political and confrontational in nature, the songs on the album are presented from the viewpoint of five different characters that make up the American doll posse from the title. With over twenty tracks, this is an album brim-full of excellent art-pop, all testament to Amos' skill and longevity as a singer-songwriter and performer.

Synopsis:

Tori Amos's matching folio to her new, critically acclaimed concept album, American Doll Posse, comprises 23 powerful piano/vocal arrangements. Arranged by David Pearl.
