Hatchery Road

Music plays a central role in the story, both in the writing and the telling. This story soundtrack – that will expand as chapters are added – came out of a discussion with my editor. There are some songs that I drew on for inspiration while I wrote, while others I picked after the fact that reflected the mood of the story at certain points along the way. He thought the list was interesting and should be added as a supplementary page, so here you go. A reader suggested adding links for each of the songs, so I have done that where I could – nearly all of which link to YouTube videos, either official or otherwise, of the respective songs.
