About the artist
For her third album, Extraordinary Machine, Apple again collaborated with Brion, and began recording the album in 2002. However, Apple was reportedly unhappy with the production and opted not to release the record, leading fans to erroneously protest Epic Records, believing that the label was withholding its release. The album was eventually re-produced without Brion and released in October 2005 to critical acclaim. She released her fourth studio album, The Idler Wheel..., in 2012, which was followed by an extensive world tour.
Apple's vocal range is contralto. Her musical style contains elements of jazz, alternative rock, and pop.
