Weekend, Jan 15-16, 2022: Tori Amos & Marissa Nadler

Two Pandemic Brewed Albums from Tori Amos and Marissa Nadler: The Echoes Interviews


Hear a  sound portrait of singer-songwriter Tori Amos. She talks about her pandemic brewed album, Ocean to Ocean. Isolated in Cornwall, England where she’s been living, she struggles with grief and the turmoil of the world and applies them through songs of driving intensity like the playful “Spies,” a lullaby for her daughter and “Speaking with Trees,” a metaphor for the death of her mother.

We all watched TV during pandemic isolation, but singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler got an album out of it. It’s called The Path of the Clouds and it’s inspired by the Unsolved Mysteries TV show. She turns these tales into personal metaphor about change, love, mysticism and murder. We solve the mystery of Marissa Nadler on Echoes.
