Silent All These Years や Pretty Good Yearは初期の
How did a shy and conflicted young daughter of a minister become one of the most important and unique female musical voices for more than a decade? Pretty Good Years is a love story between a woman and a piano a romance between a musical prodigy and the rabid fan base that she never thought she'd have. It is the story of Tori Amos, a sophisticated singer-songwriter who drew inspiration from her life and turned them into vibrant art. Tori Amos defied conventional logic when her solo debut Little Earthquakes and its single "Silent All These Years" rocketed out of obscurity to become one of the musical benchmarks of the '90s. Despite never having had a great deal of radio play or a "hit single," Amos blew open the doors for intelligent, artistic women songwriters, while making the solo piano acceptable again for popular music. Pretty Good Years takes a look at the ups and downs of a visionary artist, a savvy businesswoman, a smart and slightly kooky personality, a loving mom, and one of the most passionate voices in rock.
