    One thought on “Here She Comes Now: Essays on Women in Music

    1. A birthday gift from my daughter she knows me so well I really enjoyed this collection of essays written by different artists on female musicians singers influenced their lives Some made me feel nostalgic and took me back to my teenage years, you know the days when you would just hang out in your room, listen to the radio or put on your Walkman and listen to those tapes over and over again I also read about artists I missed along the way, mostly from the 90s PJ Harvey, Kim Gordon.Needless to say [...]


    2. Like all books of this type, Here She Comes Now is a mixed bag Overall I found the majority of the essays well written but by no means deep There s a lot of reminiscences of teen awakening Exile in Godville by Bart Blasengame is hilarious but nothing really enlightening As a professional singer musician however, I did find it incredibly entertaining and it was a great reminder of how the human and here, exclusively female voice can be transformative And it was a great bit of light reading away f [...]


    3. The best thing I can say about an essay in book like this one a collection of writers writing essays about musicians is that it got me interested in the work of the musician even if before I had no interest whatsoever For the most part, that is true of the essays in Here She Comes Now , which is why I feel that this is a very strong book among its kind While not necessarily a must read, I think any fan of music, regardless of genre, would be very happy to read this After all, this fan of punk al [...]


    4. I shamelessly blagged an ARC of this as I thought it would be right up my Tin Pan Alley I must confess that I hadn t heard of any of the writers in this collection, although I am familiar with a couple by their work In contrast though I ve heard of all the musicians featured Obviously I know some better than others and indeed like some considerably than others, but no matter the pieces in this book aren t about my taste Each writer has taken a female musician and written a piece about why this [...]


    5. This is a win review I really loved this book about the women in music who have changed our lives I have always loved music and have to many concerts in my life I read only certain ladies I was interested in though because I have never heard of some of them.


    6. Strong, varied, essay collection that will make you love music and the women who make it all the Pay particular attention to Elissa Schappal on Kim Gordon, Kate Christenson on Tina Turner and Taffy Akner on Taylor Swift and passive aggressiveness.


    7. Meh I really don t need to know how Dolly Parton or Taylor Swift changed someone s life , so I ignored all but a few essays The Patti Smith one was rather eye opening, though And Nina Simone s tribute was beautiful.
