Bring Music Home (BMH), is the largest documentation of music venues ever created. This 500-page book was developed remotely during the pandemic and captures the stories of more than 200 music venues in over 30 US cities - with a particular focus on 375+ unsung heroes and music-industry insiders behind them. 

80+ independent photographers, producers, designers, and collaborators joined forces to showcase the local venues that are integral to the creative culture of their communities.

This book is a veritable road map of music venues across the country! Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of your favorite venues and uncover new places to see a future show.

A dexterous creative + production force specializing in all things content, experiences, and multimedia strategies for clients like Warner Bros., Spotify, Facebook, and Adidas, along with musicians like Beck, Cage the Elephant, and Sheryl Crow.

Recorded under the moniker Buffalo Hunt, Ambitions of Ambiguity, the solo debut by Austin-based singer-songwriter Stephanie Hunt, is the sort of record that’s easy to love on first listen—a modern, seamless blend of psychedelic pop, Laurel Canyon-style songcraft and midcentury honky-tonk touches. But it’s also music to spend time with. Featuring performances and production by some of the brightest talents of the current Texas scene—the stunningly versatile Texas Gentlemen; Hunt’s fiancé, the acclaimed singer-songwriter Shakey Graves; and drum great McKenzie Smith, to name a few—Ambitions of Ambiguity touts many, many musical and sonic layers; to say it another way, this is a take-a-puff-and-put-on-the-headphones kind of singer-songwriter record. Hunt’s lyrics, which frequently and cleverly upend your expectations or surprise you with metaphor, follow suit. Watch one of their recent music videos here.

By purchasing a book from BookPeople, you are not only supporting a local, independent business—you’re showing publishers that they should continue sending authors to BookPeople.
