About Fiona Apple

A classically trained pianist as well as a singer-songwriter and poet, Fiona Apple composed her first songs at age eight as a way to express her feelings about childhood traumas.

∙ Thanks to the breakout single, “Criminal,” Apple’s 1996 debut album, Tidal, went triple-Platinum, earning her a Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
∙ The 90-word poem composing the full title of When the Pawn…—which landed in Guinness World Records due to its length—was written in response to what she perceived as hurtful press coverage.
∙ Her 2020 album, Fetch The Bolt Cutters, was the first one in a decade to earn Pitchfork’s highly coveted perfect score, and it also nabbed three Grammy nominations.
∙ Johnny Cash duetted with her on two of his albums, covering Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and Cat Stevens’ “Father and Son.”
∙ Director Judd Apatow has used her music in his films, and Apple wrote the theme song for the TV series The Affair.
Boogie Nights and Magnolia director Paul Thomas Anderson, Apple’s former romantic partner, shot five of her music videos.
