After The Fire's Peter Banks co-authors new book

MUSICIAN Peter Banks, best known for his work with After The Fire, and vicar and writer Jonathan Evens have written a book together, The Secret Chord. Wrote the authors in a recent press release, "In the book, we seek to explore a number of the dilemmas which musicians and other artists face, not so much in order to map out one route through or around these dilemmas but in an attempt to get the creative juices flowing. Our experience of creativity is of disparate and often contradictory ideas being crushed, swirled, fermented, shaken and stirred in our minds in order that the fine wine of creativity results. Our hope is that The Secret Chord, by exploring artistic dilemmas from a range of different perspectives, will mature in readers' minds just like fine wine or a precious pearl." The Secret Chord is available digitally. CR
