Since the release of her first, career-defining solo album Little Earthquakes, Tori Amos has been one of the music industry’s most enduring and courageous artists. From her unnerving depiction of sexual assault in “Me and a Gun” to her post-9/11 album Scarlet’s Walk to her decidedly feminist stage musical The Light Princess, her work has never shied away from intermingling the personal with the political.

Resistance: A Songwriter’s Story of Hope, Change, and Courage shares how the multiplatinum singer-songwriter has managed to create meaningful, politically resonant work against patriarchal power structures across her career, beginning when she was a teenager playing piano for the politically powerful at hotel bars in Washington, DC in the 1970s. From her time as a hungry artist in L.A. to the subsequent three decades of her formidable career, Amos’s proud declarations of feminism and her mission to fight for the marginalized always proved to be her guiding light.

Filled with compassionate guidance and actionable advice—and using some of the most powerful, political songs in Amos’s canon—Resistance teaches us to engage with intention in this tumultuous political moment and speaks directly to supporters of #MeToo and Time’s Up, as well as young people fighting for their rights and visibility in the world.

Amos is a GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter, pianist, composer, and New York Times bestselling author of Tori Amos: Piece by Piece. She has released fifteen studio albums including her latest, Native Invader, in 2017. In conversation with Hanna Rosin, co-host of NPR’s Invisibilia and the author of The End of Men.
