TORI AMOS GETS GRAPHIC

by Keith Caulfield

Keith,

On Epic Records' official Web site Tori Amos' name has disappeared from (their artist roster).

Is her contract with Epic over?

Then, is it true, as reported on drummer Matt Chamberlain's site, that she is working in the studio on some new material?

Thank you for your attention,
Fabrizio Leone

Hello Fabrizio,

I reached out to Tori Amos' manager, John Witherspoon, for comment. He responded: "After 22 years of being in the shackles of the major label system, Tori has chosen the path of independence for her next work. As with many of her contemporaries Tori is devising new and exciting ways of getting her music to the masses without the boundaries and limitations of the major music companies."

He continues, "This will commence with a project of new music and visuals which is being started in the summer and due for release in Spring 2009."

He clarified that Chamberlain was with Amos in order to play on demo recordings for the musical she is writing for the British National Theater titled "The Light Princess."

Until then, fans of Amos should be on the lookout for the new graphic novel "Comic Book Tattoo," based on Amos' work, due in July through Image Comics.
