  • Hooked Like Helen Covers Tori Amos' “Winter”

  • Cleveland-based alt-pop duo Hooked Like Helen, consisting of Nikki Stipp and Jonathan Stipp, released a cover of American singer-songwriter Tori Amos' “Winter” on January 6, 2023.


    The original version of the song was released by Tori Amos in 1992. The track was her first single to reach the top 40 in any country.
    It was written by Tori Amos. The cover version was produced by Nikki Stipp.
    The duo recorded the song by request from a friend.
    The duo said, “When our friend/fitness instructor asked us to play 'Winter' by the incomparable Tori Amos, within minutes of dissecting the first few bars of the song we quite frankly fell in love with it. We realised that it needed to become a more significant part of our musical journey and we decided to record a full-length cover of “Winter” for release to the world.”
  • Nikki Stipp added, “Winter is about a girl’s relationship with a father figure who believes in her and sees greatness in her that she might not see in herself. Ironically, I did not have anyone in my life who fit that role for me as I was growing up, but I think this might be the very reason the song resonates with me on such a visceral level. Music allows us to escape, to imagine, to build castles in our minds. When I sing and play “Winter”, I am (for 4 minutes and 30 seconds) one of those girls with a dad who loves her”.
