Route 66

I must point out straight away that the phrase “Top Shelf” in the main post means “good” in the US, so it’s OK to read on …

This blog is a review by US Music Journalist Janet Hansen. In my opinion she has gone WAY beyond the normal reviewer’s task and created a piece of writing that stands on it’s own merits as a superb set of insights into the creative process in music and business. Janet makes points from her own experience in the music business and I was delighted to receive this recently, having had nothing more than a Twitter conversation with her. Check her other blog posts out which offer rare insights into music, musicians and creativity at work. Janet is also part of a women’s empowerment movement across the USA entitled ‘Women Who Rock”.  Contact her on Twitter @scout66com and via her BLOG.
