Nicholas Nocera, designer for Alison Rose, and Randy Abramson, creator of Rock Torch website, got together and released a new, full color book featuring contributions from the site and new illustrations by Nick. All proceeds go to charity, and would make a great last minute Christmas gift. Express ship it, yo!
About the book:
Despite the Internet providing a bajillion new music critics, many music fans still find themselves asking, “who are the great bands and solo artists I should be listening to?” Rocktorch.com founder Randy Abramson reached out to the people who know music best – the artists themselves and asked them what musicians and songwriters move them the most and why.
This book captures their passionate recommendations in over 100 essays that are complimented by beautiful, full-color illustrations.
