The
The Road Beneath My Feet
$28.95
The compulsively readable memoir by singer-songwriter and master lyricist Frank Turner, documenting his rise to fame, one house show at a time

In the fall of 2005, Frank Turner was virtually unheard of. His rock band, Millions Dead, was finishing up a grueling tour and had agreed that their show on September 23 would be their last. The entry on the band's schedule for September 24 read simply: "Get a job."

Cut to July 2012―the London Olympics, where Turner and his backing band, The Sleeping Souls, are playing the pre-show, after having headlined sold-out arena shows across the UK for months.

The Road Beneath My Feet is the unvarnished story of how Turner went from crashing on couches at house shows to performing for thousands of screaming fans who roar his every lyric back at him. Told through tour reminiscences, this is a blisteringly honest tale of a rock career that's taken Turner from drug-fuelled house parties and the grimy club scene to international prominence and acclaim. But more than that, it is an intimate account of what it's like to spend your life constantly on the road, sleeping on floors, invariably jetlagged, all for the love of playing live music.


Frank Turner is a folk/punk singer-songwriter. He was the lead singer of rock band Million Dead before embarking on a solo career. Turner has released six solo albums as well as EPs and rarities, and has played thousands of shows across 38 countries.

Stevie Nicks
$27.95
Lyrical visionary, enduring style icon, and one indispensable fifth of post-Peter Green megaband Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks is one of the most recognizable figures in rock ‘n’ roll history—very much Fleetwood Mac’s “Queen Bee,” as Mick Fleetwood himself describes her. With gold and quadruple platinum solo albums under her beaded belt, Stevie Nicks has enjoyed the ultimate rock ’n’ roll success as a recording artist—but this charmed life has come as a result of hard graft, self-belief, and a devotion to creativity above all; hers has been a journey of intense high and lows.

This new biography, a celebration of the Stevie Nicks phenomenon, takes us on her journey from peripatetic Midwest childhood to her explosion onto the music scene as chiffon-swathed rock goddess, right up to the present day. Including exclusive interview with some of Stevie’s associates and collaborators from over the years, author Zoe Howe explores the mystique while retaining the magic of this modern-day musical sorceress and wise woman of rock.


Zoe Howe is a British rock writer whose work has appeared in The Quietus, NME, BBC Music, Holy Moly, and Company, amongst other outlets.
