If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a GRAMMY-nominated artist, bumping elbows with music’s elite, you’re going to want to pick up a copy of Sara Bareilles‘ debut book.
The singer-songwriter, best known for 2013’s “Brave,” is set to release a collection of essays about life as a musician called Sounds Like Me—and now she’s debuted the jacket art for it.
Bareilles describes everything from her first listen to Joni Mitchell’s Blue album to performing alongside Carole King at the 2014 GRAMMYs, and the stories behind her most popular songs, all with wisdom and humor.
“I was greatly humbled by the process of writing of this book,” Bareilles said in a statement. “It feels infinitely more vulnerable to speak about my life without the metaphor and mask of music or my singing voice. I tried to be candid. I tried to remember things in an unbiased way. I tried to be at least a little funny. I tried to be myself, as wholeheartedly as possible. Sounds Like Me is a collection of stories about my own self-discovery. Each essay is anchored by a song that helped me build a deeper understanding of who I am as an artist and person.”
