Innerviews - Music Without Borders




About Innerviews

Established in 1994 by music journalist Anil Prasad, Innerviews is the Web’s first and longest-running music magazine. Innerviews delivers in-depth, uncompromising interviews that enable artists to speak at length about topics that matter to them. The magazine features a wide variety of genres, including rock, jazz, world music, pop, hip-hop, and folk.

Prasad’s writing has also appeared in Guitar Player, Bass Player, Frets, JazzTimes, Relix, All About Jazz, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). In addition, Innerviews content is used as part of the UCLA School of Music's course curriculum.

Prasad is the author of the best-selling book Innerviews: Music Without Borders. The eBook edition hit #1 on iTunes’ Arts & Entertainment and Music charts. The book features detailed interviews with 24 renowned musicians who share candid thoughts on the joy and pain of the creative process, their careers and aspirations, conflicts and collaborations, and the realities of today's music business. Artists profiled in the book include Björk, Stanley Clarke, Ani DiFranco, Béla Fleck, Bill Laswell, John McLaughlin, Public Enemy, David Sylvian, and Tangerine Dream.

The book has been acclaimed by media outlets worldwide. "Prasad gets artists to share their deepest thoughts about a wide range of topics, from spiritual inspiration and motives to compositional methods. A fascinating look at the thinking of contemporary artists," said The Christian Science Monitor.

"The book sets the bar for getting musicians to speak candidly and thoughtfully about their work and relation to the world,” wrote The Ottawa Citizen.

Prasad’s work has been extensively quoted in more than two-dozen music books, including In a Silent Way: A Portrait of Joe Zawinul by Brian Glasser, In The Court of King Crimson by Sid Smith, On Some Faraway Beach: The Life and Times of Brian Eno by David Sheppard, and So What: The Life of Miles Davis by John Szwed.
