The fifth title in our popular quotation collection series, this volume gathers words by and about musicians. One quotation per page-the quote on the left and right side of the spread responding in some way to each other. The Musician Says resembles a dinner or cocktail party, with a musician from the nineteenth century chatting with one practicing today, or two contemporary musicians talking to each other-complimenting, competing, disagreeing. This is a collection of bright, intriguing, and provocative quotations from those who have spent a lifetime writing songs and performing them in front of loyal audiences. It's honest, wry, and sometimes very moving. To hear Beethoven and John Lee Hooker "talk" about how they keep track of their musical ideas, so as not to lose them, or Mozart and Steven Tyler complain about ongoing money challenges, reminds us all that the creative process bridges time and place, and music is indeed a universal language.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..".as one makes his or her way through The Musician Says, something seems to happen...Quotes are not thrown in randomly. Instead they are juxtaposed on opposite pages with clear intent, offering supporting or competing views of a similar experience...Use The Musician Says as coffee table reference or cover-to-cover read. Either way, it works." - Under the Radar
"The book separates artists away from their history-making songs and symphonies, and brings us closer to their human experiences, if for just a fleeting moment." - Cool Hunting
"Thanks to the newly released book, The Musician Says, compiled by Benedetta LoBalbo, we found some damn good reasons to make it through to next season with confidence and bravado." - Glamour
