About the Author

Jason Schneider is one of Canada's most respected music journalists whose work regularly appears in "Exclaim! "magazine. He is the coauthor of "Have Not Been the Same: The CanRock Renaissance""1985-1995 "and the author of "3,000 Miles." He lives in Waterloo, Ontario.


[Schneider's] study is sure to become a key piece in the survey of popular music history . . . Schneider beautifully weaves in the complicated relationships, both professional and personal, of the various artists who have come to define the sound of 20th-century American popular music (yes, American). --"Publishers Weekly" "The first comprehensive book, long overdue, on Canadians' impact on contemporary American pop music . . . This is a refreshing addition to pop-music literature as well as to the often neglected-by-Americans corpus of Canadiana." --Booklist Online ""Whispering Pines" is a busy, striving survey, a latticework of cultural history, microbiography and music journalism . . . Schneider's delivery is that kind of chatty, energetic rock journalism of the old-time variety." --"The Globe and Mail" "A fine piece of writing that condenses and contextualizes five decades of music into an entertaining and thoughtful document . . . Jason Schneider offers a concise, brilliantly organized and original take on Canadian cultural influence." --"Literary Review of Canada" "Schneider's collection of stories puts a fresh spin on Canadian artists whose lives and accomplishments haven't lacked for media coverage and analysis." --"Edmonton Journal" "It is clear [Schneider] knows his subject, and the book is a treasure trove of trivia." --"Winnipeg Free Press" ""Whispering Pines" works not just as approachable one-stop-shopping for those with a passing interest in the subject[s], but as a long overdue contextual framework for the tenants in this country's tower of song." "Schneider presents a thoughtfully researched history and analysis of Canadian songwriters, their geographical and social origins and their career paths." --"Canadian Geographic"
