Book Description :

Musical Director and arranger David Loud, a legendary Broadway talent, recounts his wildly entertaining and deeply poignant trek through the wilderness of his childhood and the edge-of-your-seat drama of a career on, in, under, and around Broadway for decades. He reveals his struggle against the ravages of Parkinson's and triumphs repeatedly. This memoir is also a remarkable love letter to music. Loud is the 'Ted Lasso' of the theater business, ever the optimist! “‘Music has consequences,’ a wise teacher once told a young David Loud; so does a story well-told and a life fully-lived. I lost count of how many times I laughed, cried, and laugh-cried reading this wonderful, wry, intimate, and inspiring book. David wields a pen like he wields a baton, with perfect timing, exquisite phrasing, and enormous heart.” — David Hyde Pierce, actor, Frasier, Spamalot, Curtains “Beautifully written, filled with vivid details, braided with love and loss and wit and the perspective of someone with an utterly unique story to tell." -- Lynn Ahrens, lyricist, Ragtime, Once on This Island, Anastasia “Luminous and surprising, an extremely honest memoir of a life lived in the world of Broadway musicals, by one of the theatre’s most gifted conductors. I can’t think of another book quite like it.” -- John Kander, composer, Cabaret, Chicago, New York, New York Unforgettably entertaining and emotionally revealing, Loud is pitch-perfect as he describes his path to the podium, from a stage-struck kid growing up at a school devoted to organic farming and mountain climbing, to the searing formative challenges he faces during adolescence, to the remarkable behind-the-scenes stories of his Broadway trials and triumphs. Skilled at masking his fears, Loud achieves his dream until one fateful opening night, when in the midst of a merry, dressing room celebration, he can no longer deny reality and must suddenly, truly, face the music.

Book Description :

Jennifer Knapp’s meteoric rise in the Christian music industry ended abruptly when she walked away and came out publicly as a lesbian. This is her story—of coming to Christ, of building a career, of admitting who she is, and of how her faith remained strong through it all. At the top of her career in the Christian music industry, Jennifer Knapp quit. A few years later, she publicly revealed she is gay. A media frenzy ensued, and many of her former fans were angry with what they saw as turning her back on God. But through it all, she held on to the truth that had guided her from the beginning. In this memoir, she finally tells her story: of her troubled childhood, the love of music that pulled her through, her dramatic conversion to Christianity, her rise to stardom, her abrupt departure from Christian Contemporary Music, her years of trying to come to terms with her sexual orientation, and her return to music and Nashville in 2010, when she came out publicly for the first time. She also talks about the importance of her faith, and despite the many who claim she can no longer call herself a believer, she maintains that she is both gay and a Christian. Now an advocate for LGBT issues in the church, Jennifer has witnessed heartbreaking struggles as churches wrestle with issues of homosexuality and faith. This engrossing, inspiring memoir will help people understand her story and to believe in their own stories, whatever they may be.

Book Description :

?Steve Goodman wrote "Good mornin' America, how are ya" into the nation's consciousness, becoming one of the most respected singer/songwriters of the 1970s and early 80s. With warmth and wit, he charmed better-known peers, top critics, and countless fans. Yet this 5-foot-2 troubadour nearly lost his chance at adult life. Diagnosed with leukemia at age 20, Goodman kept it a secret for 16 years as he sang for a generation that assumed it would live forever.This biography scrutinizes a theme that Goodman knew all too well: when death is imminent, we grasp that life is about connecting with others. Goodman's childhood, the untold full story of "City of New Orleans," his launching by the unlikely duo of Kris Kristofferson and Paul Anka, his teaming with "wild and crazy" Steve Martin for more than 200 shows, his landmark recordings and two Grammy awards all get extensive attention in this biography. The book delves into his personal and professional life, drawing on over 850 original interviews with Goodman's family, childhood and adult friends, and a diversity of celebrities."From the cradle to the crypt, it's a mighty short trip," Goodman wrote in a song shortly before his 1984 death. This biography verifies that the universality of his work -- hilarious, political, romantic, or all three rolled into one -- resonates deeply in today's musical firmament.

Book Description :

Facing the Music, Larry Brown’s first book, was originally published in 1988 to wide critical acclaim. As the St. Petersburg Times review pointed out, the central theme of these ten stories “is the ageless collision of man with woman, woman with man--with the frequent introduction of that other familiar couple, drinking and violence. Most often ugly, love is nevertheless graceful, however desperate the situation.” There’s some glare from the brutally bright light Larry Brown shines on his subjects. This is the work of a writer unafraid to gaze directly at characters challenged by crisis and pathology. But for readers who are willing to look, unblinkingly, along with the writer, there are unusual rewards.

Book Description :

Mamie Smith's pathbreaking 1920 recording of "Crazy Blues" set the pop music world on fire, inaugurating a new African American market for "race records." Not long after, such records also brought black blues performance to an expanding international audience. A century later, the mainstream blues world has transformed into a multicultural and transnational melting pot, taking the music far beyond the black southern world of its origins. But not everybody is happy about that. If there's "No black. No white. Just the blues," as one familiar meme suggests, why do some blues people hear such pronouncements as an aggressive attempt at cultural appropriation and an erasure of traumatic histories that lie deep in the heart of the music? Then again, if "blues is black music," as some performers and critics insist, what should we make of the vibrant global blues scene, with its all-comers mix of nationalities and ethnicities? In Whose Blues?, award-winning blues scholar and performer Adam Gussow confronts these challenging questions head-on. Using blues literature and history as a cultural anchor, Gussow defines, interprets, and makes sense of the blues for the new millennium. Drawing on the blues tradition's major writers including W. C. Handy, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and Amiri Baraka, and grounded in his first-person knowledge of the blues performance scene, Gussow's thought-provoking book kickstarts a long overdue conversation.

Book Description :

Julian Rush is a United Methodist minister who served churches in Dallas, Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs for 17 years until his suppressed homosexual orientation surfaced. With Julian's acknowledgement of his sexuality, in the early '80s, First United Methodist Church of Boulder decided he was no longer suitable to minister to the congregation and chose to stop paying his salary. Julian's situation with the Boulder church and United Methodism became widely publicized as the denomination continued to grapple with the issue of homosexuality. This is Julian's own record of his struggles with being unacknowledged as a gay child, his religion, family and community both before and after the discovery of his orientation and the reaction of those his life has touched. These include persons who are non-gay but supportive, gays and lesbians who are out, non-supportive persons, and an outpouring of pain and suffering from those closeted people who could not reveal themselves. Through a tortuous journey, Julian continues to discover his niche in communities that can benefit from his ministry. He last served as Executive Director for the Colorado AIDS Project as an appointed United Methodist minister. This is the story of how it all began.

Book Description :

Facing the Music is a book about worship leading. But it is also a book about much more than just the act of leading or the theory of leadership. It dives deep into the calling, spirit and motivation of the worship leader. It invites us to move beyond "singing the song" and towards "becoming the song." It speaks of worship not as something we do, but rather something we are. It celebrates a lifestyle of worship and leads us to a level of transparency and intimacy before Jesus Christ. Facing the Music may challenge your preconceptions about worship leading-it may make you uncomfortable about some things. But in the end, the call, as A.W. Tozer once said, to "Take worship out of the hands of man and place it in the hands of God where it belongs," rings loud and clear throughout its passages. Dr. Robert Dusek is the Worship and Arts Pastor at Centerpoint Community Church in Arvada, Colorado. Prior to being called to the ministry, Dr. Dusek toured as a concert pianist and had several of his compositions and performances published and recorded. His passion now is for a rebirth of authenticity and transparency in the worship of God, and to that end he has worked with and coached several Denver area praise teams and has been a proponent of multi-church praise and worship gatherings. Robert lives at home with his wife whom he loves and his dog whom he tolerates.

Without moving from their seats, readers will be swept up by the crowds and immersed in the sights and sounds of this extraordinary event, soaking up the atmosphere, absorbing the energy and experiencing the rain, the mud and the toilets. Readers will explore Glastonbury with the central character, Gary Cochrane, whose rebellious teenagers are straining to break free and assert their independence. Gary is a single parent who is desperate to cling onto his children, but he’s hiding a secret that starts to force them apart. He made a pledge and he intends to keep it - but the festival has a way of exposing the truth, and Gary is no longer master of his own fate... This page-turning novel explores family relationships, love, loss and betrayal. Facing the Music is a vivid portrayal of Glastonbury itself: an iconic festival that, once a year, turns a sleepy valley in the south west of England into a small city; a non-stop festival of lights, colour and noise; a festival bursting with excitement and surprises, with the power to change a life forever. Tim Thorogood’s influences include contemporary novelists such as Nick Hornby, David Nicholls and SJ Watson. He plans to donate half of all profits to the three charities that Glastonbury currently supports - Greenpeace, Water Aid and Oxfam. Readers’ comments – “very evocative”, “really nails Glastonbury”, “I liked the mix of darkness and humour”, “it made the whole Glastonbury experience come to life”.

Book Description :

This book will broaden readers’ understanding of the links between the music and fashion industries. It highlights the challenges currently facing the fashion industry in terms of hyper-competition, definition of ever-faster trends, changing consumer demands etc. In fact, the fashion industry is heavily influenced by the digital revolution in the music industry, which has changed the face of individual music consumption and social reference, and therefore, also has impacts on fashion consumption and social reference. This understanding is crucial in order to realign any fashion company’s strategies to the demands of modern fashion consumers. In terms of content, the book first discusses the social perspective of fashion and music. This includes an analysis of music as a key influencer of fashion trends, both theoretically and on the basis of a case study on grunge music. Then the role of music in the fashion business is addressed, and covers in-store music and the role of music in fashion communication. Following up, the role of fashion in the music business is analyzed. This includes the trend of co-design of fashion collections, music artists’ role of differentiation by style, and the market for music fashion merchandise articles (both theoretically and drawing on a case study). In closing, potential lessons learned from the music industry are developed for the fashion industry. This includes an analysis of the digital revolution and the advent of the crowdfunding idea (both theoretically and in a case study).
