THE WRITER'S PLAYLISTS
Music has always played an important part in my life, despite never achieving my dream of becoming an accomplished musician, particularly mastering the bass guitar. However, I believe that music together with any kind of artistic expression should be an integral part of our lives, whether we make a living out of it or not. It is, for want of a better word, fuel for the soul. It was only natural therefore, that I should incorporate a musical element or influence in my writing. In addition to that of travel, my other passion.
Whether they are intrinsically related or not to the storyline of my books, I feel that these songs in one way or another have a place and add their own particular mood or atmosphere to the plot. Some of you may or may not agree with these choices, that is always subject to interpretation, and there lies the beauty of music; we all have our own way of feeling and interpreting songs.
So please, join me and discover the songs and sounds that inspired each of my stories.
Singeth the author...
During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, being confined to isolate, and work from home, I took up one of my favorite hobbies; singing. Something, like playing bass, I wasn't too disciplined when i needed to be - even though I do fancy myself a terrific shower and solo-driving vocalist.
Anyway, here are two songs I covered from two of my favorite musicians. Tweaking of course, the lyrics, to reflect the serious shit going on with Covid-19.
I trust you won't need counselling, or hearing therapy after you hear these songs...
