Singer-songwriter-pianists have always been known for revealing their darker and more vulnerable side for the sake of art. But few have done so with as much artistically expressed candor and brutal honesty as Fiona Apple and Tori Amos. 

Both Tori Amos and Fiona Apple started their musical lives very young, with rigorous classical training, and both hit the scene in the 90s, going on to become incredibly successful and popular artists whose music touched millions. They also both used the piano in interesting and creative ways that warrant exploration by our community of pianists.
