Singer's Survival Guide to Touring has been released, plus first review!

I'm thrilled to announce that my book "Singer's Survival Guide to Touring" has been released. It is available on my website and on 

And here's the first ***** review!
"Singer's Survival Guide is exactly what you'd hope: an enlightening, entertaining look at the trials and tribulations of the touring musician - and a textbook on how to survive them.
Lohninger tackles the hazards of flying, traveling in a tour bus, touring with a cold, equipment hassles, bus break-ins and breakdowns, untimely belches (really - I laughed out loud) and band members who never think they're mixed loud enough. Her prescriptions and suggestions are road-proven, both practical and empowering.As a non-musician (I write books), I was surprised at how valuable both the philosophical and practical advice was. I don't tour, I don't worry about my throat, but Lohninger's outlook toward staying healthy and keeping your eyes on the prize were totally relatable to any creative field or anyone with a desire to be the best they can be.This book is both a breezy entertainment and a model of professional creative discipline. A great read!" - Ted Krever

Book description:

Jazz vocalist Elisabeth Lohninger pulls back the curtain on what it takes to have a vocally successful tour. The book consists of 2 parts: part 1 with the nuts and bolts of healthy touring that leaves the singer with both their voice and their body, mind and spirit in tact after a tour; and part 2: a collection of stories from the road. Darkly funny, self deprecating and disarmingly honest, the stories range from the mundane (vacuuming the hotel room at 6am is a hotel rule!) to the existential (voice? what voice???). Singer's Survival Guide to Touring is informative, laugh-out-loud funny and heartbreakingly real. This book is for singers and anybody who ever wanted to know what it's like to be a touring vocalist.
