Biography

American singer-songwriter who helped revive the singer-songwriter traditions of the '70s and brought back the piano as a rock & roll instrument. She has a dedicated following from her five albums and concerts.

Born in North Carolina and raised in Maryland, Myra Ellen was the youngest of three children of a Methodist preacher father and a homemaker mother. As a child prodigy of five, she won a scholarship to study classical music at Baltimore's Peabody Conservatory. While there, she fell in love with rock & roll music, writing pop ballads and performing in local bars. By age 13, she was performing her songs at clubs in Washington, D.C. In 1984, Amos moved to Los Angeles to become a pop singer and started calling herself Tori.

Atlantic Records signed her in 1987, recording one album that was a quick and complete failure; however, she didn't lose her record contract. By 1990, Amos had adopted a new approach, singing piano ballads. She toured England in 1991, where she played a series of concerts in support of her album "Me and a Gun." The autobiographical title song described her experience of being raped. It received positive reviews throughout the media and sold well. "Little Earthquakes," Amos' first solo album was released in late 1991 and went gold in both the U.S. and the U.K. She moved to London to help promote her album in that market. Between 1992 and 1996, she released two more very successful albums.

Amos spent much of 1997 dealing with personal matters, including a miscarriage and a marriage, and working on her fourth album, released in the spring of 1998. Her fifth album was released in 1999 in conjunction with a tour with Alanis Morissette.

Amos and her husband, Mark Hawley, a sound engineer, welcomed their first child, daughter Natashya Lorien on 9/05/2000.
