TODAS LAS GRANDES CANCIONES SON HISTORIAS DE AMOR. Música, pasión y fama en un debut brillante y atmosférico ambientado en los embriagadores años setenta que te encantará si te gustaron Ha nacido una estrella o Todos quieren a Daisy Jones. Mejor Libro para el verano según el Wall Street Journal Verano de 1969. Jane Quinn se sube al escenario del festival de Bayleen y, en ese momento, nacen una estrella y una apasionada historia de amor. De gira con Jesse Reid, el músico cuyos infames ojos azules han roto multitud de corazones, los meses estivales se convierten en un torbellino de conciertos, atardeceres llenos de color y noches salvajes que absorben a Jane. Sin embargo, no tarda en descubrir que tras la música de Jesse se esconde un oscuro secreto, y esto la empuja a coger su guitarra y volcar todo lo que siente en el disco que la convertirá en una estrella o la destruirá para siempre: Canciones desde la Osa Mayor. ENGLISH DESCRITPION A transporting love story of music, stardom, heartbreak, and a gifted young singer-songwriter who must find her own voice: “In the vein of Daisy Jones and the Six and The Final Revival of Opal and Nev, [this] is an intoxicating chronicle of the music industry, inspired largely by the love affair between artists Joni Mitchell and James Taylor” (Elle).” The year is 1969, and the Bayleen Island Folk Fest is abuzz with one name: Jesse Reid. Tall and soft-spoken, with eyes blue as stone-washed denim, Jesse Reid’s intricate guitar riffs and supple baritone are poised to tip from fame to legend with this one headlining performance. That is, until his motorcycle crashes on the way to the show. Jane Quinn is a Bayleen Island local whose music flows as naturally as her long blond hair. When she and her bandmates are asked to play in Jesse Reid’s place at the festival, it almost doesn’t seem real. But Jane plants her bare feet on the Main Stage and delivers the performance of a lifetime, stopping Jesse’s disappointed fans in their tracks: A star is born. Jesse stays on the island to recover from his near-fatal accident and he strikes up a friendship with Jane, coaching her through the production of her first record. As Jane contends with the music industry’s sexism, Jesse becomes her advocate, and what starts as a shared calling soon becomes a passionate love affair. On tour with Jesse, Jane is so captivated by the giant stadiums, the late nights, the wild parties, and the media attention, that she is blind-sided when she stumbles on the dark secret beneath Jesse’s music. With nowhere to turn, Jane must reckon with the shadows of her own past; what follows is the birth of one of most iconic albums of all time. Shot through with the lyrics, the icons, the lore, the adrenaline of the early 70s music scene, Songs in Ursa Major pulses with romantic longing and asks the question so many female artists must face: What are we willing to sacrifice for our dreams?
