Would you be willing to leave a stable career, at age 51, to make a fresh and creative start? For former music critic Joan Anderman that’s exactly what she did!
After writing for such publications such as the Boston Globe, New York Times, Rolling Stone, the Boston Phoenix, and the Seattle Weekly as a music critic, Joan says that she is now setting out on a journey to write songs and document it along the way; something she has never tried before.
