***ONE OF BILLBOARD'S TOP TEN MUSIC BOOKS OF 2018***

'A brilliant book about singing... I have been talking to Nick Coleman about music, in person and in my head, for forty years now. [With Voices] you have the opportunity to hear what I have heard. I hope you take it' Nick Hornby in The Believer


What happens when we fall in love with a voice; the siren call of someone singing?

The history of post-war popular music is traditionally told sociologically or in terms of musicological influence and innovation in style. Voices takes a different tack. In ten discrete but cohering essays Coleman tackles the arc of that history as if it were an emotional experience with real psychological consequences - as chaotic, random, challenging and unpredictable as life itself.

Voices is the story of what it is to listen and learn. Above all, it is a story of what it means to feel.
