About the Book.

Growing up in the 1980s, in the heart of New York City’s downtown music and art scene became fertile ground for seeds of creativity, doubt, and eventual empowerment for Pyeng Threadgill—as expressed through Lost & Found: Finding the Power in Your Voice, a collection of personal essays, poetry, and prose. Threadgill offers the reader various entryways to witness the magnificence and fragility of our voices and of our lives. As a performing professional vocalist, songwriter, recording artist, and bandleader, she began Lost & Found during the pandemic—born from many years of teaching voice, the Alexander Technique, and practicing meditation and meditative movement.

From motherhood to travel, from ancestry to the body—evolving from a passionate performer to injured performer, from voice student to voice and movement teacher—Lost & Found examines the visceral and ephemeral experiences of the voice, for the body and for oneself in the world, as both a spiritual and political act.
