Tori Amos has made music history with her new Deutsche Grammophon album Night of Hunters, becoming the first woman ever to simultaneously land on Billboard's Classical, Alternative and Rock Charts all in the Top 10. Her critically acclaimed new disc debuted at #1 on Billboard's Classical Crossover and Classical Overall Charts, while also nabbing the #5 position on the Alternative Chart and #7 on the Rock Chart.

Night of Hunters is receiving critical acclaim from both the classical and pop world. NPR's Ann Powers recently commented, "This is the album she was destined, by early apprenticeship and spiritual affinity, to record..... And the music deeply satisfies," while Spin Magazine raved, "a wildly imaginative ride full of orchestral fireworks and fairy-tale melodrama..."

With more than 12 million albums sold and multiple Grammy nominations, Tori Amos is one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation. A pioneer across multiple platforms, she was the first major label artist to offer a single for download, has had her songs turned into graphic novels, and has produced pioneering videos throughout her career. She is renowned for her passionate and broad fan-base, her critically and commercially successful tours, and her ever evolving live show. Ms. 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.
