The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology: A Memoir

Thomas Dolby

The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology: A Memoir by Thomas Dolby

The remarkable story of rising to the top of the music charts, a second act as a tech pioneer, and the sustaining power of creativity and art.

Thomas Dolby's hit songs "She Blinded Me with Science" and "Hyperactive!" catapulted him to international fame in the early 80's. A pioneer of New Wave and Electronica, Thomas combined a love for invention with a passion for music, and the result was a new sound that defined an era of revolutionary music. But as record company politics overshadow the joy of performing, Thomas finds a surprising second act.

Starting out in a rat-infested London bedsit, a...

Drummer, record producer, bandleader, jazz researcher, and cigar-chomping raconteur Barry Martyn is a New Orleans original who happens to have been born in England. Implausible though this may seem, it makes perfect sense to members of the New Orleans traditional jazz community, who view themselves as an extended family based on merit as much as nativity. For more than forty years, Martyn has been a fixture in the Crescent City's jazz scene, laying down the beat for generations of celebrated musicians and avidly promoting the city's unique musical heritage around the world.

Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon

Peter Ames Carlin

Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon by Peter Ames Carlin

A revelatory account of the life of beloved American music icon, Paul Simon, by the bestselling rock biographer Peter Ames Carlin

To have been alive during the last sixty years is to have lived with the music of Paul Simon. The boy from Queens scored his first hit record in 1957, just months after Elvis Presley ignited the rock era. As the songwriting half of Simon & Garfunkel, his work helped define the youth movement of the '60s. On his own in the '70s, Simon made radio-dominating hits. He kicked off the '80s by reuniting with Garfunkel to perform for half a million New Yorkers in Central Park....

Traveling Soul: The Life of Curtis Mayfield

Todd Mayfield & Travis Atria

Traveling Soul: The Life of Curtis Mayfield by Todd Mayfield & Travis AtriaCurtis Mayfield was one of the seminal vocalists and most talented guitarists of his era, and his music played a vital role in the civil rights movement: "People Get Ready" was the black anthem of the time. In Traveling Soul, Todd Mayfield tells his famously private father's story in riveting detail. Born into dire poverty, raised in the slums of Chicago, Curtis became a musical prodigy, not only singing like a dream but growing into a brilliant songwriter. In the 1960s he opened his own label and production company and worked with many other top artists, including the Staple Singers. Curtis's...

Moscow Nights: The Van Cliburn Story-How One Man and His Piano Transformed the Cold War

Nigel Cliff

Moscow Nights: The Van Cliburn Story-How One Man and His Piano Transformed the Cold War by Nigel Cliff

Gripping narrative nonfiction that tells the dramatic story of a remarkable young Texan pianist, Van Cliburn, who played his way through the wall of fear built by the Cold War, won the hearts of the American and Russian people, and eased tensions between two superpowers on the brink of nuclear war.

In 1958, an unheralded twenty-three-year-old piano prodigy from Texas named Van Cliburn traveled to Moscow to compete in the First International Tchaikovsky Competition. The Soviets had no intention of bestowing their coveted prize on an unknown American; a Russian pianist had already been chosen to...

Ed Ward & Billy Gibbons

Michael Bloomfield: The Rise and Fall of an American Guitar Hero by Ed Ward & Billy GibbonsThis is the definitive biography of the legendary guitarist whom Muddy Waters and B. B.

THE ABC of 1-2-3: The True Story

Billy Ritchie

THE ABC of 1-2-3: The True Story by Billy Ritchie

1-2-3 are now acknowledged as having a major influence on what became of music in the 1970s. Yet the band disappeared without trace in history, only to surface decades later, in circumstances that Mojo Magazine described as "Archaeology". The man behind it all, Billy Ritchie, somehow vanished from the radar, and from the music business completely, going out with a bang, refusing interviews or contact with anything to do with it - Until now.

In typically forthright fashion, he tells his true story, without fear or favour, naming names and shaming those who took his legacy, but also giving credit...

The Roots of Rock, from Cardiff to Mississippi and Back

Peter Finch

The Roots of Rock, from Cardiff to Mississippi and Back by Peter FinchIn The Roots of Rock, from Cardiff to Mississippi and Back Peter Finch reflects on how popular music has shaped both his life and the culture in which he lives, from first hearing American music on the radio in his Cardiff home in the 1950s to the compendious and downloadable riches of digital files. Finch has always gone to gigs and now he travels to the bars of Ireland, the clubs of New York, the plains of Tennessee, the flatlands of Mississippi and the mountains of North Carolina to get a feel for the culture from which his favourite music originates.

I Saw Him Standing There

Mike Powell

I Saw Him Standing There by Mike Powell

Imagine if John Lennon was still alive.
What music would he be creating?
Would he still be doodling and drawing images he sees all around him?
Sadly at the young age of forty, his life was cruelly snatched away from him and his music and creativity died with him
