Delta, 1998 - Music - 368 pages
This first-of-its-kind collection vibrates with the high-voltage energy of today's most exciting female singer-songwriters as they speak out, look inside, and reveal their lives.

Sarah McLachlan:
"When I sang and played I'd get completely lost in what I was doing.  During that time, I was no longer this stupid, useless little ten-year-old who didn't have any friends.  I was someplace else, where none of that could touch me."

Jewel:
"Fame exists in other people's minds.  I can't experience my own fame at all but I experience it in other people's eyes when I look at them and see that they're scared."

Shawn Colvin:
"Giving up addiction was the springboard into adult thinking.  I realized that everything was a choice.  The world was an open book.  Nothing was the same after that."

Sheryl Crow:
"I always pictured myself as a loner off living like a Jack Kerouac character or, worse, someone out of a Charles Bukowski book, one of those down-and-outers who works at a gas station and has no one and no family."

Lucinda Williams:
"I don't want to offend anyone, but I like to push people's buttons.  While I want to appeal to people in all walks of life, I also want to get a response, make them think."
