Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A rare and riveting look into the lives of our most popular and important women musicians through the eyes of the artists themselves. "Solo" is an exciting collection of first-person accounts of life on the road, life at home and life on stage by Jewel, Sheryl Crow, Sarah McLachalan, Ani Defranco and many others, accompanied by exclusive and intimate black and white portraits.Popular music in the nineties belongs to women -- from the overnight sensation of Alanis Morisette to the long, steady-building success of Jewel. There are more solo women artists today writing their own songs and commanding their own respect than ever before. Indeed, the most successful summer festival was the Lilith Fair, selling out everywhere while old faithfuls like Lollapalooza failed to claim the audiences they once held. Here, for the first time, the women of our time in candid, first-person narratives, accompanied by stunning black and white portraits, talk about their lives and their music. Featuring pieces by: -- Jewel - Only 23 years old, Jewel is a true darling of the media (she has appeared on the covers of Time, Rolling Stone, Details and Interview). Her debut album, Pieces of You, has sold more than 5 million copies and has produced three top-ten singles.-- Sheryl Crow - Her debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club, featuring #1 hit All I Wanna Do, sold more than 7 million copies and her eponymous follow-up album has already sold more than 3 million copies.-- S.

Inhaltsangabe: This first-of-its-kind collection vibrates with the high-voltage energy of today's most exciting female singer-songwriters as they speak out, look inside, and reveal their lives.
"When I sang and played I'd get completely lost in what I was doing. During that time, I was no longer this stupid, useless little ten-year-old who didn't have any friends. I was someplace else, where none of that could touch me."
"Fame exists in other people's minds. I can't experience my own fame at all but I experience it in other people's eyes when I look at them and see that they're scared."
"Giving up addiction was the springboard into adult thinking. I realized that everything was a choice. The world was an open book. Nothing was the same after that."
"I always pictured myself as a loner off living like a Jack Kerouac character or, worse, someone out of a Charles Bukowski book, one of those down-and-outers who works at a gas station and has no one and no family."
"I don't want to offend anyone, but I like to push people's buttons. While I want to appeal to people in all walks of life, I also want to get a response, make them think."
