About the Book
Growing up as one of the youngest of 6 kids, she was first exposed to the musical tastes of her older siblings - everything from the Osmonds to Cliff Richard. It wasn’t until a childhood trip to India coincided with the release of ‘Planet Earth’ by Duran Duran, that Rickie discovered the life she wanted for herself.
Lost in Music chronicles a young woman’s refusal to settle for a bog-standard life and her journey towards creating an extraordinary one.
From the New Romantics to Bowie to Bon Jovi to the Boss, Lost in Music is an autobiographical love letter to genres that underscored Rickie’s greatest memories and the locations visited around the world that helped her become the happy and fulfilled woman she is today.
With an iconic tracklisting spanning the 1960s to the 2000s, providing a soundtrack to adventures fuelled by coffee and cake, this book isn’t simply about its author - it promises to escort each reader back in time to simpler days and memories of the start of their own musical journeys.
After all, music is for life, not just for listening to.
