Tell Me Why: The Story of My Life and My Music

Archie Roach

No one has lived as many lives as Archie Roach - stolen child, seeker, lover, leader, and musical and lyrical genius - but it took him almost a lifetime to find out who he really was.

Roach was only a few years old when he was forcibly removed from his family. Brought up by loving foster parents until his early teens, his world imploded when he received a letter that spoke of a life he had no memory of.

In this intimate, moving and often shocking memoir, Roach’s story is an extraordinary odyssey through love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal - and music. Overcoming enormous odds to find his story and his people, Roach voiced the joy, pain and shining hope he found on his path through song and became the legendary singer-songwriter that he is today - beloved by millions and the beating heart of our country.

A stunning story of resilience and strength - and of one of the greatest love stories ever told.
