Off the Charts
What I Learned from My Almost Fabulous Life in Music
"Kat is a storyteller extraordinaire...Read this book with glee. It's a revelation." -CHARLES PACHTER
So you want to make it as a singer-songwriter? Kat Goldman has been there, almost to the very top, and now she's back with sage advice and hilarious behind-the-scenes stories from a lifetime of toil in the dive bars and legendary venues of the contemporary music scene.
Learn what it's like to meet your first fan, date a rock star (never again ), perform in a grocery store, and rebuild your career after getting hit by a car in a bagel shop. Feel the sting of rejection and rampant sexism, and the thrill of writing a hit song and performing with your idols...
Off the Charts is a whimsical, uproarious tour through a fickle business that never seems to repay what performers put into it, and one woman's highly intimate account of how she made the best of almost making it. Featuring a sparkling set of original illustrations by the award-winning Nina Berkson.
