Known as the birthplace of Motown, Detroit’s music history goes further back than the soul sounds of Smokey Robinson and Aretha Franklin. In his book Heaven Was Detroit, author M.L. Liebler chronicled the history of Detroit’s music scene from early jazz to modern day techno and its impact on the city.
