Tune into Musical History Books
The origins of blues, rock, jazz, country and hip hop have all been explored by musical historians. Pioneering musicians often overcame many challenges before their music was heard and these tales are worth telling.
The music that shapes your soul can shape your reading too. The love of books and information, the love of music and its origins – all this points to a passion for the story and for being swept away by someone else’s experience, no matter the medium of the telling. From blues to reggae to rock ‘n’ roll and beyond these are the books that tell the story of music.
