Tori Can Sing

Tori Amos, one of the few alternative rock singers to use the piano as her lead instrument, will play two concerts in Poland: Oct. 9 at the Dom Muzyki in the southern city of Zabrze, and Oct. 10 at the Sala Kongresowa in Warsaw. The concerts are part of the Sinful Attraction Tour, the singer's 10th international tour, promoting her latest album Abnormally Attracted to Sin, which was released earlier this year.

Amos started learning to play the piano at the age of two. At five, she obtained a scholarship to the Preparatory Division of the Peabody Conservatory of Music, which she was asked to leave at 11 for her "dislike for reading from sheet music."

Before releasing her debut solo record "Little Earthquakes" in 1992, Amos amassed experience playing in smaller clubs in the United States and Britain as well as recording with her band at the time, Y Kant Tori Read, named after the reason for her expulsion from her conservatory.

During her last concert in Poland in 2007, also at the Sala Kongresowa, Tori Amos told the audience "I know where I am," a reference to the history of the location. But taken out of that context, it would also perfectly sum up her career so far.

From the beginning, Amos has remained true to her own style, combining the classical sound of her piano with her characteristic voice, and penning insightful and intimate lyrics dealing with problems faced by contemporary women, the role of religion within society or current political issues.

She can transition from scream to whisper in a split second, bombard the audience with a wall of sound but also tone down the musical backdrop to a bare minimum.
