Biography

American singer-songwriter, pianist and poet. An eight-time Grammy Award nominee and one-time winner, Apple's albums have reached the top fifteen in U.S. sales charts in four consecutive decades.

Classically trained on piano as a child, she began composing her own songs when she was eight years old. Her debut album, Tidal, containing songs written when she was 17, was released in 1996 and received a Grammy Award for Best Female Vocal Rock Performance for the single "Criminal". She followed with When the Pawn... (1999), produced by Jon Brion, which was also critically and commercially successful and was certified platinum.

For her third album, Extraordinary Machine (2005), Apple again collaborated with Brion, and began recording the album in 2002. However, Apple was reportedly unhappy with the production and opted not to release the record, leading fans to protest Epic Records, erroneously believing that the label was withholding its release. The album was eventually re-produced without Brion and released in October 2005. The album was certified gold, and nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album.

In 2012, she released her fourth studio album, The Idler Wheel..., which received critical praise and was followed by a tour of the United States and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2013. Apple's fifth studio album, Fetch the Bolt Cutters, was released in 2020 to widespread acclaim.

She has sold over 10 million albums worldwide and has received numerous other awards and nominations, including 2 MTV Video Music Awards and a Billboard Music Award.

Source Notes

From user by email in November 2020: "I messaged a Fiona Apple fan page (Fiona Apple Rocks; his name is Simon) on Tumblr who knows Fiona Apple personally. She sends him videos via email and he posts them on his Tumblr page. I asked him if he could ask her for her time of birth and he replied and said that she was born at 9:59 a.m. in Manhattan, New York. She was born on September 13, 1977. This time most likely came from Fiona herself as she is in contact with the account."
