In her only UK event this autumn, Tori Amos talks about her life as a musician, as an activist singer-songwriter, and as a woman and feminist in the music industry. In her new book, Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Change and Courage, Tori provides an insight into her life, her creativity and her beliefs. Moving from her experiences playing hotel bars in Washington DC as a teenager, to Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony, to the fans who’ve shared their stories, she shows how events inspire her to combine the personal and the political. She discusses her relationship with the Muses, and how her openness to creative energy enables her to write songs that speak truth to power and allow others to connect their thinking to the structures which govern our lives. This is guaranteed to be a fascinating and unique conversation with this Grammy nominated, multi-platinum artist. Hosted by Kate Feld.
