About Strata Books

Our manifesto is to publish books written by musicians. Our aim – to discover and support talent in the deep creative vein where words and music meet.

With a healthy quota of musicians already well-established and respected as writers in the fields of music criticism, memoir, autobiography as well as fiction, poetry, long form and more, we plan to bring new voices to the mix.

Strata’s team has collective experience encompassing artist management, record labels, film, photography, design and digital. This will be invaluable as we encourage, develop and nurture authors, helping to build icons along the way. Our passion for music and love of books will help us build a diverse catalogue: novels, short stories, graphic novels, memoirs, biographies, children’s books, photo-journals, flash fiction, poetry, novellas and more.

Strata Books is an independent publishing company founded by Gordon Biggins and Polly Polglase. Uniting passionate readers, music lovers and talented writers in a sustained rewarding relationship is our challenge. We hope you’ll join us on our way.
