Synopsis

From his work with The Beastie Boys to Neil Young and the late Johnny Cash, as a producer Rick Rubin is legendary. In The Creative Act he brings a lifetime of experience to a revelatory exploration of what it means to be creative, how to nurture an artist’s instinct and turn ideas into reality.

Shortlisted for Foyles Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2023  

Synopsis

Many famed music producers are known for a particular sound that has its day and then ages out. Rick Rubin is known for something else: creating a space where artists of all different genres and traditions can home in on who they really are and what they really offer. He has made a practice of helping people transcend their self-imposed expectations in order to reconnect with a state of innocence from which the surprising becomes inevitable. Over the years, as he has thought deeply about where creativity comes from and where it doesn't, he has learned that being an artist isn't about your specific output; it's about your relationship to the world. Creativity has a place in everyone's life, and everyone can make that place larger. In fact, there are few more important responsibilities. The Creative Act is a beautiful and generous course of study that illuminates the path of the artist as a road we all can follow. It distils the wisdom gleaned from a lifetime's work into a luminous reading experience that puts the power to create moments - and lifetimes - of exhilaration and transcendence within closer reach for all of us.
