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.

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.

Amos and her husband, Mark Hawley, a sound engineer, welcomed their first child, daughter Natashya Lorien on 5 September 2000.
