Amos began playing piano as a teenager for the politically powerful at hotel bars in Washington, DC, during the formative years of the post-Goldwater and then Koch-led Libertarian and Reaganite movements. The story continues to her time as a hungry artist in Los Angeles to the subsequent three decades of her formidable music career. Amos explains how she created meaningful, politically resonant work against patriarchal power structures ~and how her proud declarations of feminism and fight for the marginalized always proved to be her guiding light. Filled with compassionate guidance and actionable advice ~and using powerful political songs in Amos’s canon, this book is for anyone determined to steer the world back in the right direction.
