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.
