Singer-Songwriters and Musical Open Mics is an ethnographic exploration of New York City’s live music events where musicians signup and perform short sets. This sociological study dispels the common assumption that open mics are culturally monolithic and reserved for novice musicians. Open mics allow musicians at different locations within their musical development and career to interactively perform, practice, and network with other musicians. Important themes in the book include: the tension between self and society in the creative process, issues of creative authenticity and authorship, and on-going cultural changes central to the Do-It-Yourself cultural zeitgeist of the early 21st century. The open mic’s cultural antecedents include a radio format, folk hootenannies, and the jazz jam session. Drawing from multiple qualitative methods, Aldredge describes how open mics have etched a vital organizational place in the western and urban musical landscape. Open mics represent a creative place where the boundaries of practicing and performing seemingly blur. This allows for a range of social settings from more competitive, stratified, and homogenous music scenes to culturally diverse weekly events often stretching late into the night.

Most often associated with modern artists such as Bob Dylan, Elton John, Don McLean, Neil Diamond, and Carole King, the singer-songwriter tradition in fact has a long and complex history dating back to the medieval troubadour and earlier. This Companion explains the historical contexts, musical analyses, and theoretical frameworks of the singer-songwriter tradition. Divided into five parts, the book explores the tradition in the context of issues including authenticity, gender, queer studies, musical analysis, and performance. The contributors reveal how the tradition has been expressed around the world and throughout its history to the present day. Essential reading for enthusiasts, practitioners, students, and scholars, this book features case studies of a wide range of both well and lesser-known singer-songwriters, from Thomas d'Urfey through to Carole King and Kanye West.

The singer-songwriter, someone who writes and performs their own music, is an ever-present and increasingly complex figure in popular music worlds. The Singer-Songwriter Handbook provides a useful resource for student songwriters, active musicians, fans and scholars alike.

Section II deals with the nature of performance: stagecraft, open mic nights, and a number of case studies that engage with performing in a range of contexts. Section III is devoted to aspects of the music industry and the business of music including sales, contract negotiations, copyright, social media and marketing. Section IV provides specific examples of singer-songwriter personae and global open mic scenes. The Singer-Songwriter Handbook is a much-needed single resource for budding singer-songwriters as well as songwriting pedagogues.

"Open Book, Open Mind: Open Mic" is the latest literary work from author/singer/songwriter/entertainer/actor Big Daddy Abel. The author of the Best Selling E-book/digital short story series "Open Mic" is back with this culminating title loaded with many new stories and extras. Life on the road in a band provides many fun times and funny stories for BDA to share with you in this collection of humorous essays. Also included are several short stories in which Big Daddy collaborated with authors Giovanni Gelati and Tommy Jannarone. Time spent on the road and in hotels provides a fertile environment for many hours pondering the world at large. BDA shares his views in a comical, light hearted and, at times, thought provoking manner on everything from politics to cultural relations and proper etiquette while attending live shows to behind the scenes encounters with rock stars and movie stars while on the set of television and movie productions. This book spans from sharing his great (times 9) grandmother's unfortunate experience in Salem during the Witch Trials into the future possibilities of language, encounters and the interconnectedness of everything. Inspired by such great authors as Mark Twain, Douglas Adams and Kurt Vonnegat, as well as, the comedic styles of Lewis Black, Ron White, Jim Gaffigan, Chris Rock, Patton Oswalt and even a touch of Bill Maher, Big Daddy Abel shares his views of the world while wearing his heart on his sleeve and keeping his ?real? heart in the right place. He lays himself emotionally naked for you to read, ponder and absorb. This, is real, at times all "too real." Be prepared to laugh, think and maybe even shed a tear. Guard yourself, as Big Daddy takes you for a ?real? ride into his real mind, real heart and real soul.
