Through sleepless ramblings and observations from Newfoundland singer / songwriter Damhnait Doyle, these journals cover her travels from Afghanistan to Japan and all over Canada on tour both solo and with her Shaye bandmates, Kim Stockwood and Tara MacLean. Sharing insights into the highs and lows of juggling a band and a solo career, and whether she's talking about Advil or karma, bikes or Canadian troops in Kabul, Damhnait Doyle's style is engaging and uniquely personal. The title of this book was found on the door of a dressing room at the 2005 Canadian Songwriter's Hall of Fame event. The room housed Buffy Sainte-Marie, Loreena McKennitt, and many other notable female musicians, and Damhnait Doyle's initial reaction was "'Miscellaneous females' they are not." But upon reflection, she realized that, as writers, she and these other women were speaking for all women who do not have a public voice.
Damhnait Doyle was born in Labrador City, Newfoundland, and grew up in St. John's. Her debut album, Shadows Wake Me, was released in 1996. In 1997 she was nominated for a Juno Award for Best New Solo Artist. She was also nominated in five categories at that year's East Coast Music Awards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I want more! I have to say that Damhnait Doyle is one of the top reasons I am proud to be a Newfoundlander! I just have to say that I love this woman! She's so honest and adorable in her writings that at times I have literally laughed out loud at her witt! She's great! I kind of hope to hear more from her in this respect. What a fabulous woman and inspiration she is. The only reason I didn't rate 5, is because I would have liked to have read more. More insight on her travels, more detail. But all in all, a great read! Wonderful Job Dav!
