"A piece of lesbian history from the 'girl with a guitar' who truly sang for her supper.
Jamie brings the road to you in color and out loud."
–Suzanne Westenhoefer

She's opened for Holly Near, closed a church coffeehouse by saying "uterus" and danced with a tornado. From taking her shirt off for Amy Ray to housing with a pig, she's always looking for the perfect gig.

With a delightful mix of horror road stories, fan girl name dropping and commentary on the people and times, Anderson describes the joys and travails of the touring circuit as she creates the music and stories of our lives.

"An extraordinary glimpse into the life of a touring musician."
–Nancy Manahan

"Jamie's as endlessly funny an entertainer on the page as on the stage."
–Lee Lynch

"She leads with her sense of humor and heart..."
–Lisa Koch
