Writer and critic Amy Raphael interviewed twelve female musicians, from Courtney Love to Kim Gordon, from Bjork to Kristin Hersh. As Debbie Harry wrote in the foreword, each artist’s life was ‘so different and similar and intriguing’. More than two decades on, Raphael asks a group of contemporary female musicians to tell their stories, from Kate Tempest to Maggie Rogers, from Christine and the Queens to Ibeyi.

‘Fascinating and illuminating’ STYLIST

‘Perceptive and candid’ IRISH TIMES

‘A fascinating, brilliant book, full of joy, rage, a love of music’ THE SKINNY

‘Variously optimistic, troubling, joyful, illuminating, fierce and thoughtful’ GUARDIAN

INTERVIEWS WITH WOMEN ON THE FRONTLINE OF MUSIC, from KATE TEMPEST to MAGGIE ROGERS, CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS to IBEYI.

Writer and critic Amy Raphael has interviewed some of the world’s most iconic musicians, including Courtney Love, Patti Smith, Björk, Kurt Cobain and Elton John. In 1995 she wrote the critically-acclaimed Never Mind the Bollocks: Women Rewrite Rock, which included a foreword by Debbie Harry.

More than two decades on, the music business has changed, but the way women are regarded has not. In this new book, A Seat at the Table, Raphael interviews eighteen women who work in the music industry about learning to speak out, #MeToo, social media, queer politics and the subtleness of everyday misogyny.
