After being discovered at the Innerchange and signed to Atlantic Records in 1994, she released her 1995 debut album Pieces of You and mega-hits "Who Will Save Your Soul," “Foolish Game” and “You Were Meant For Me.” Her 1998 follow-up featured “Hands” and “Standing Still.” The same year she became a published poet with A Night Without Armor.
