Happy Valentine’s Day everyone <3
"This guy I liked asked me out on a date, but I was so nervous that I hadn’t eaten all day. After he asked me out I had some peanut butter on toast, went onstage, and near the end of the show I couldn’t breath. I still blame the peanut butter. I came off stage, still couldn’t breathe, passed out, and then the ambulance arrived. I was taken to the emergency room, given some kind of shot, and now I’m married to that guy.” -Tori Amos

"We haven’t worked the details out, but we’re trying to make it so that it’s easy for people to pick up a phone and that they’re not alone, and they can get tools, I mean real tools, to begin this victim releasing process, cuz you can stay a victim forever in your mind. And um, there *are* ways to get through it." -Tori Amos, on the beginnings of RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network)

Natasha is the Lead Organizing Director of 20 Years After the Pink.
Where were you in your life’s journey when you first heard Under The Pink?
"I was living at my Mom’s house still, I believe I was 18 or 19 years old at the time, so it would’ve been 1999 or 2000, around the time To Venus and Back came out. I was at a low point in my emotional roller coaster, harming myself, I had recently had a suicide attempt, just not in a good place in any way. I still remember the first time I heard “Pretty Good Year” and the first time I played Under the Pink. That piano line just echoed throughout the entire house because the floors were hardwood. I felt something melting inside me within that piano line. I had felt so angry up to that point in my life, and Under the Pink was so vulnerable and safe, I surrendered to that ice world and washed a lot of wounds clean in that place.”
Natasha is the Director of All These Years, a Tori Amos Inspired Site for Healing & Thriving After Trauma.
Natasha also runs ALL THESE YEARS! =D

I had the chance today to ask Scott Berkowitz, President of RAINN about Tori’s involvement in the birth of the Organization in 1994:
NATASHA: “Did Tori Amos approach you personally to help co-create RAINN after she kept getting letters from survivors while on tour for Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink?
How did the two of you get started with RAINN in 1994?”
SCOTT: “When I started RAINN, I approached Tori to be our first spokesperson (through her record label and manager, initially). She immediately agreed to help, and did an incredible job introducing RAINN to survivors and the public. We couldn’t have done it without her.”

Tori played ‘Bells for Her’ on a prepared piano, a term coined by composer John Cage to describe the use of objects placed between or on the strings, or on the hammers or dampers of a piano in order to alter its sound. While Cage did not invent the instrument, he is credited with popularizing it.
The ‘Bells for Her’ piano was prepared by Eric Rosse and John Philip Shenale.
