Here She Comes Now is a tribute to the significance of female musicians throughout history, as writers from across the board describe the effect musicians like Patti Smith and Stevie Nicks have had on their lives. Contributing writers Rosie Schaap, Charlotte Druckman, Taffy Brodesser-Akner, Alina Simone, Kim Morgan and others join in the conversation.
Whether it was Patti Smith’s angry moan, Nina Simone’s guttural growl, or Dolly Parton’s towering hair and sweet voice, women have been a musical force to be reckoned with, inspired by, and paid attention to. In Here She Comes Now, today’s biggest and brightest writers tackle their favorite female musicians and the effect they’ve had on their own lives. From Rosie Schaap writing about Sandy Denny to Susan Choi writing about Stevie Nicks to Elissa Schappell writing about Kim Gordon, Here She Comes Now thoughtfully and lovingly discusses the extreme badassery of the women who break through all the barriers to truly rock.
