11:05 Marty Duda's Artist of the Week - Fiona Apple
Fiona Apple emerged in the middle 1990s in the wake of the success of Alanis Morissette, when labels were signing female singer-songwriters left and right. Fiona quickly established herself as an artist to be reckoned with thanks to 'Criminal' the hit single (and video) from her 1996 debut album Tidal. Since then, Apple’s work has been sporadic, unconventional and fascinating. She has only released three albums sinve her debut, the most recent, titled The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Ever Do has just been released this week.
