Feature interview - Jessica Hopper

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:07 pm on 12 October 2015

Hopper xJessica Hopper isn't just passionate about music, she is obsessed with it. For more than 20 years, she has been a successful and rare thing in the music world, a female music critic. She says writing about music is a way to crack open a lot of different nuts including giving a voice to women in the male dominated world of music journalism. She writes about the dramatic shifts in the music industry over the last 20 years in not only what we are listening to but how we are listening to it in her new book, The First Collection of Criticism By A Living Female Rock Critic. Jessica Hopper speaks with Jesse Mulligan.
