“Unrepentant Geraldines” is Amos’ 14th studio recording, and the revival of her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs, following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years. These have included the seasonal collection “Midwinter Graces,” the classically influenced “Night of Hunters,” and “Gold Dust,” a collection of orchestral re-workings of songs spanning her career. Released in October 2012, “Gold Dust” included “Flavor,” which was remixed by the late DJ Peter Rauhofer and peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Club Dance Chart in February 2013.
Amos recently launched her most ambitious project to date as a composer, along with book writer Samuel Adamson, with the musical The Light Princes, which premiered at London’s National Theatre in fall of 2013.
Amos has sold over 12 million albums, has played over a thousand shows and has won numerous awards. Since the release of her debut album “Little Earthquakes” in 1992 where she pushed boundaries with her confessional style of songwriting, Amos continues to be adored, picking up new fans along the way, romanced by her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness, and of course her utterly peerless sound.
A pioneer across multiple platforms, Amos was the first major label artist to offer a single for download. She has had her songs turned into graphic novels and has produced groundbreaking videos throughout her career. Amos is also a noted humanitarian and co-founder of RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), which is the United States’ largest anti-sexual assault organization.
