Resistance Zusammenfassung

Resistance: A Songwriter's Story of Hope, Change and Courage Tori Amos

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 ingenious artists. From her unnerving depiction of sexual assault in 'Me and a Gun' to her post-9/11 album Scarlet's Walk, to her latest album Native Invader, her work has never shied away from combining the personal with the political.

Amos was a teenager when she began playing piano for the politically powerful at hotel bars in Washington, D.C., and her story continues from her time as a hungry artist in Los Angeles to the subsequent three decades of her formidable music career. Amos explains how she managed to create meaningful, politically resonant work against patriarchal power structures - and how her proud declarations of feminism and her fight for the marginalised always proved to be her guiding light. She teaches readers to engage with intention in this tumultuous global climate and speaks directly to supporters of #MeToo and Time's Up, as well as to young people fighting for their rights and visibility in the world.

Filled with compassionate guidance and actionable advice - and using some of the most powerful, political songs in Amos's canon - Resistance is for readers determined to steer the world back in the right direction.

Resistance Bewertungen

This memoir and call to action will delight Amos's many fans. * Publishers Weekly *
A dramatically inspired volume of lyrics and legacy presenting Amos as an artist, an activist, and a sharp, thoughtful musician with a commanding voice. A profound autobiographical playlist and radically political call to action primarily for Amos fans. * Kirkus Reviews *
The writing is very Tori; authentic, sharp, evocative, and endearingly kooky in places. * Watercolor Stain *
Amos' many fans are this book's natural audience, but it will sing to anyone with an artistic soul. * Booklist *
A tale of politics, feminism and equality... Resistance reinforces Amos's position as one of pop's more thoughtful songwriters. * Observer *
It is part manifesto, part career retrospective and part remembrance... Her song lyrics spur her on from point to point in the book, which, as ever with Amos, veers between seeming totally bats and shockingly sane. * Sunday Times *
An engaging, insightful look at her 30-year career and the songs that have given voice to the marginalised and the emotionally wounded. * Sunday Express *
