Apple was discovered in 1994, at the young age of only fifteen years, by music publicist Kathryn Schenker. Schenker saw great potential in the young girl and therefore referred her to Sony Music executive Andy Slater. Her unique voice, phenomenal piano skills, and deep lyrics caught the required attention and won her a record deal. Fiona Apple rose to fame in 1996 at the age of seventeen years with her debut album called Tidal. The album received a positive response critically and commercially. It was therefore recognized as a huge milestone achieved by the young artist who had just started off with her commercial musical career.
'Tidal' sold well over two and a half million copies and was certified as being platinum thrice in the United States. The album's hit track "Criminal", which was its third single, became a huge success and made it to the U.S. Billboard Hot 100's top forty numbers. "Criminal" even brought home a prestigious Grammy Award that Fiona Apple won for "Best Female Rock Vocal Performance". The song "Sleep to Dream" from the same album also won Fiona Apple the MTV Video Music Award for "Best New Artist".
The highly successful debut album was followed by Apple's later album, 'When the Pawn...', in 1999. Although not as big a hit as the previous album, this one also received positive reviews published in popular papers and magazines like The New York Times and Rolling Stone. 'When the Pawn...' was certified to be a platinum album by the RIAA and it sold around a million copies in the United States. "Fast as You Can", which was the lead single from the album, made it to Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart's top twenty.
