Hymn To Her: Women Musicians Talk by Karen O'brien
From raunchy rhythm-and-blues singers to cute all-girl groups, sensitive singer-songwriters, hard-core and street-wise rappers - few industries have demanded as many stereotypes of women as the music business. In this exciting celebration of their talent, music journalist Karen O'Brien meets fifteen of the most successful and influential women who have made it to the top, creating the music we listen to today. From a rich variety of backgrounds, they talk with vibrancy and honesty about the nature of creativity, the importance of image, the doubled-edge of celebrity and how to survive and thrive among the pressures of the market-place.
