ASHLAND, Ore. and NEW YORK, May 9, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Grammy Award-winning global superstar Kenny G has inked a deal with Blackstone Publishing to release his long-awaited memoir, Life in the Key of G, publishing September 24, 2024.

The deal was negotiated between Kenny G, Blackstone Acquiring Editor Addi Wright, and Jeff Kleinman and Steve Troha of Folio Literary Management. The memoir was written in partnership with Philip Lerman.

In his heartfelt, funny, and fascinating memoir, LIFE IN THE KEY OF G, Kenny G shares how skinny Kenneth Gorelick became one of the most celebrated and revered virtuosos in the music industry—rising above the fray, tuning out the critics, and living a life filled with happiness and humor.

On writing his memoir, multiplatinum-selling cultural icon Kenny G says, “I’ve always preferred to let my music do the talking for me; it’s my way of expressing what’s in my heart. But I thought people might want to know what’s inside the music, and where it comes from. And there’s a lot about how I went from Kenneth Gorelick to Kenny G that I’ve never talked about before. It’s been exactly fifty years since my first professional gig (and that blows my mind because I feel like I’m just getting started); but it seemed like a good time to share those stories with the wonderful people who’ve supported me all these years.”
