Bob Boilen, the host and creator of NPR’s All Songs Considered and Tiny Desk Concerts, gives us an essential oral history of modern music, told in the voices of iconic and up-and-coming musicians, including Dave Grohl, Jimmy Page, Michael Stipe, Carrie Brownstein, Smokey Robinson, and Jeff Tweedy, among others—published in association with NPR Music. A diverse collection of personal experiences, both ordinary and extraordinary, Your Song Changed My Life illustrates the ways in which music is revived, restored, and revolutionized. It is also a testament to the power of music in our lives, and an inspiration for future artists and music lovers.

“Bob Boilen’s book gets at something real and rare about the power of music.” (New York Times Book Review)

“NPR’s music guru asks dozens of artists about songs that inspired them. The answers are surprising and illuminating, and the roster of contributors is great.” (Billboard, Spring Music Book Preview)
