The Johnny Rodgers Band got my book!

The Johnny Rodgers Band musos have my book, SabahSongs: Contemporary Music in Sabah, courtesy of book sponsors the Society of Performing Arts Kota Kinabalu,  Sabah (SPaRKS). So nice!

These guys are based in New York City, and the U.S State Department sends them around the world as ambassadors for American music. Here’s the band blog on what they did while in Kota Kinabalu on their recent tour.

This is an interview with them from June 2012, republished in the book.

About Joanna

Joanna is British Australian. Her early career was in financial news in London. That ended in 2008. Joanna moved to Sabah, her parents’ birthplace, where she wrote a blog about musicians, which became a book. Joanna came to Australia in 2012 and started this blog — her second. These days, she writes mostly about music, her garden, and trips to Sabah. Oh, and Wookie the Havanese.
