It Still Moves
Eclectic, searching and hugely engaging, Amanda Petrusich's full-length debut is an exploration of American roots music, in all its forms. From country to blues, jazz to soul, bluegrass to the more recent alternative takes on these genres, it looks at the paths trodden and those to come. Far from a retrogressive study, it seeks to explain how this melting pot of styles and influences contributes to the rich and progressive sounds coming out of America today.
Taking that most potent symbol of American freedom, the highway, as her starting point, the book is based on the author's personal journey from North to South. Warm, entertaining and insightful, it is the first serious attempt to explain and celebrate the much maligned and misunderstood term 'Americana'.
