11 Last Week's ARC Winners and a Surprise MARKED Giveaway

“Voice is that mysterious quality, most important of all, that, if it can be cultivated, cannot be taught: Miles Davis’s trumpet is immediately identifiable and the sob in the back of Billie’s throat is hers and hers alone. Voice boils down to a pungent roux of self, the truest expression of who we are, blended and seasoned with expertise, with our tools of choice — paint, light, lyrics, melody, choreography, chords, dialogue, sentences — whatever calls us. Voice is not much without chops, but chops without voice, however virtuosic, amounts to little more than elevator music.”

on memoirists, actors, musicians, and other cover artists
