Tori Amos

Tori Amos has been away. She’s been exploring the depths of the seasons, and of festive tradition, a sense-tingling journey captured in her 2009 album Midwinter Graces. She’s been time-travelling through 400 years of classical music, an odyssey that found form in Night Of Hunters (2011), her first release on Deutsche Grammophon. She’s been revisiting her own, two decades-strong back-catalogue, reimagining her compositions in an orchestral setting for her 2012 album Gold Dust. And Tori Amos has been hiding in the wings, and beetling backstage, and peering anxiously from the gods – the American-born, Cornwall-based singer-songwriter spent much of 2013 co-creating The Light Princess, a musical staged in partnership with London’s National Theatre.
