Although her name remains mostly unknown outside R&B and club music circles, she has appeared on literally hundreds of records — sometimes under her own name, sometimes in the background, and quite often as[...]

Ripped-Off-Riffs

Spotlight: Ripped-Off Riffs

It’s not news that sometimes two artists write a great song using the same riff. In 1994, Bush and The Offspring had hits with “Little Things” and “Self-Esteem,” respectively, which put the same chords in a different order and treated them like the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” sons they are.

Tori-Amos

Celebrity Playlist: Tori Amos

Tori Amos has never shied away from controversial topics. With her trusty piano by her side, Amos has unflinchingly sung about rape, religion, miscarriage and, most recently, menopause, offering up cleverly written songs that are sometimes sad, often angry, and always come from the heart. After a few years flirting with classical music, Amos, now 50, has returned to the piano-driven[...]
