The Beekeeper Artist: Tori Amos

Tori Amos is a gifted singer-songwriter who actually made an impression by banging away Mozart on the piano at an early age of three. Later on she studied music but was kicked out because she was heard playing Led Zeppelin on piano by ear. A controversial figure in the 90's she charmed us with songs like "Cornflake Girl', Silent All these Years and my personal fave Pretty Good Year from Under the Pink(1994). 

  She's back with Beekeeper, a collection of 20 original compositions which would entice as well us confuse fanatic ears.The first half of the album begins with our typical Tori songs like, Jamaica Inn, Barons of Suburbia and the hit Sleeps with Butterflies.The second half is not what you typically hear from her especially with tracks like Witness, Hoochie Woman and Ireland. I still like this(my neice Jen is now a convert of her music), a follow up to the successful Scarlet's Walk, though if you were looking for typical Tori then grab Little Earthquakes, Under The Pink and Choirgirl Hotel instead.
