(A blog post for the weekend, folks. I'm about to head out for the day in the snow - going out somewhere secret for my birthday. No idea where... well, er, obviously, as it's a surprise. Anyway. Yes. I will report back later. Happy weekend! x)
Quite a few people have been asking me what kind of music I like listening to. When I write, I tend not to listen to music (though I sometimes listen to classical music/piano solos - Dustin O'Hallaran etc), but when I'm out and about I've always got earphones in, and I've no doubt that this music inspires my writing. So, here are some of my favourites.
(You'll notice that I have a thing for women and pianos.)
Imogen Heap owns my soul. If you ever get the chance to see her in concert, do. She is pretty much queen of everything.
Two years ago I wrote a short story that was released in a limited edition Paper Aeroplanes CD. Their music is beautiful.
Pretty much everything Tori Amos, but especially the live recording: 'Welcome to Sunny Florida.'
the wonderful Charlotte Martin
Of Monsters and Men
the beautiful Florence
(& there should be more Amanda Palmers in the world.)
There you go. Happy weekend! x
