Our LIEBLING OF THE DAY is by Rick Rubin – a nine-time Grammy-winning producer and named ‘The most successful producer in any genre’ by the Rolling Stone. He has collaborated with artists from Tom Petty to Adele, Johnny Cash to Red Hot Chili Peppers, from Beastie Boys to Slayer.

Rubin is most famous for creating a safe space where artists of wildly different genres and traditions can home in on who they really are and what they really offer. To surprise themselves, and thus the world. Rubin’s true art is for helping people get out of their own way and commune with the powerful creative signal that is their birthright.

More than five years in the making, The Creative Act is a series of meditations and an offering of the wisdom gleaned from a lifetime’s work spent in the service of exhilaration and transcendence.
