For the MJ fan

Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson

For the classic rock fan

Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin: Interviews and Encounters

There is no lack of biographies on the infamous Led Zeppelin. But this book is different, as it is their own words. An insightful and funny book (British humour galore!) that separates the truth from the rumors.

For the Jazz fan

An insightful look into New Orleans in 1920’s and growing up poor during that era, in the words of no other than Louis Armstrong. His colorful personality is felt throughout this book. You can almost hear the music.

For the Hip Hop fan

Jay­Z Decoded

Rap fan or not, this book speaks many universal truths that anyone can relate to. Jay­Z “decodes” his songs, and their lyrics. But even more so, Jay­Z decodes multiple issues such as drug culture, the music industry, as well as rap itself.

For the feminist music fan

The Lady Sings the Blues

Billie Holiday had one of the most recognizable and soulful voices of history. Although behind that legendary voice was a tale of sorrow and addiction. Her story, as told by herself, is anything but sugar­coated.
