Bruce Cockburn To Release Memoir


SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Award-winning singer Bruce Cockburn is set to publish his memoir, sold to HarperOne’s Senior Editor Roger Freet by Bernie Finkelstein—Cockburn’s 40 year management partner and founder of True North Records—of The Finkelstein Management Company. Cockburn’s long awaited memoir is set to publish in April 2012.

Cockburn is a prolific artist with 30 albums under his belt, earning a solid reputation as a songwriter and pioneering guitarist. His performance style encompasses folk, jazz, blues, rock, and worldbeat styles and his touring has taken him around the world to places such as Guatemala, Mali, Mozambique, Afghanistan, and Nepal.

"Bruce’s decades-long devotion to social justice and spiritual depth is a perfect fit for our list. We’re excited to be publishing his memoir,” said SVP/Publisher, Mark Tauber.

"Over the years, the notion that there should be a book about me has popped up now and then, along with offers to write it,” said Mr. Cockburn. "It always seemed too soon, and I've felt all along that such a book should be mine to author. When HarperOne expressed their interest, it finally did seem timely, so here we go! It's very gratifying to be associated with this important publisher." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
