Hymn To Her by Karen O'Brien
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Breaking down stereotypes, the 16 interviews in this book give an insight into those women who have helped shape contemporary music. Few industires have demanded as many stereotypes of women as the music business, from raunchy rhythm-and-blues singers to cute all-girl groups, sensitive singer-songwriters, hardcore punks and streetwise rappers. Beyond these limited genres are the women who are creating the music that is listened to today. Karen O'Brien meets 16 prominent women musicians who talk candidly about the nature of creativity, the importance of image, the double-edge of celebrity and how to survive and thrive among the pressures of the marketplace. The musicians include: Neneh Cherry, Evelyn Glennie, Nanci Griffith, Janis Ian, Angelique Kidjo, Monie Love, Kirsty MacColl, Yoko Ono, Jane Siberry, Tanita Tikaram, Moe Tucker and Suzanne Vega.
