Writing Out the Notes A rambling trip through a colourful and melodic St John s childhood, combined with a how not to do it yourself guide to the music business and a thoughtful and sometimes poignant look at the way a legendary Canadian band creates music all of these threads and many others are pulled together by writer and musician Bob Hallett Writing Out the Notes began as a series of essays Hallett wrote to explain his love of music, but it turned into a humorous biography and a kind of extended solo on music and how his love for it transformed his life Although he is best known for his role in Great Big Sea, Hallett has long had a parallel career as a writer And while some writers seek inspiration from travel, history, or romance, for Hallett, the place where he grew up provided all the inspiration he never needed.

    This was a very quick read If you ve read Bob s blog on the Great Big Sea website , you ve probably read most of the book Each chapter title is the title of a song that influenced Bob in some way No real dish on the group Just music and what it means to this particular member of Great Big Sea.

    Well written and fascinating look at how Hallett of Great Big Sea ended up where he is today If you ever have the chance to hear him do a reading in person, go He s also a fantastic and humorous speaker.

    Fans of Great Big Sea will love this book not really a GBS biography, this book is a glimpse inside the events and songs that crafted a master musician Worthy read for GBS fans and music lovers alike.
