Groove to Reborn's Playlist on Spotify
Updated: Nov 3, 2018
I'm one of the most eclectic people you're likely to meet, something that will be extremely obvious once you check out the music play list I used during the creation of Reborn.
From Pop to Hard rock to bluegrass and Alternative, there are few genres that didn't pump into my headphones. Music is a tool, and an effective one, but also a very specific one (at least for me) because it has the tendency to affect, even sway my mood to a large degree.
Because of this I choose the genre based on what scene I'm writing or characters I'm plotting. For example the first chapter was dreamed up while I listened to Seether, Tori Amos, Linkin Park and Sarah Mclachlan; while the third chapter was plotted to the beat of artists such as Eminem, Rihanna, Sublime and Avril Lavigne; and every chapter involving the hunters includes classic rock like AC/DC, The Allman Brothers, The Rolling Stones and CCR.
Also I've found as I continue on with the series that I identify specific songs with certain characters I.E. for Anna it's Tubthumping by Chumbawumba, while I hear the instrument that is Eddie Vedder's voice singing Black for Jared.
So, if you want to get a feel for the epic journey of The Allies of Old grab a beer, a set of headphones, and let the rhythms move you:
