Career

1994–1998

Apple was introduced to the music industry in 1994 when she gave a demo tape containing the songs "Never Is a Promise", "Not One of Those Times", and "He Takes A Taxi" to her friend who was the babysitter of music publicist Kathryn Schenker.[1] Schenker then passed the tape along to Sony Music executive Andy Slater.[2] Apple's contralto [3][4] voice, piano skills and lyrics captured his attention, and Slater signed her to a record deal.[5][dead link]. As the editor of Cups Magazine, Alexander Laurence was the first to feature Fiona Apple on the cover in 1996.
