When I hear a song — a really special song — I am sent somewhere else. A story begins in my head, and its narration is dependent upon the song.
As a writer, this is a great thing. A story, with barely any effort.
But later on I’d read the story in silence, and something was missing. It didn’t have that same emotion with which it entered the world.
It was too bad, I’d mope, that I can’t write a story with a soundtrack. Or rather, a soundtrack with a story.
And then I realized that yes I fucking can.
Enter Words + Music.
It is this thing that I decided to make using just words and music. The music always comes first. The songs I use are simply songs that inspired me to write down some words. Typically the words write themselves. It is just up to me to piece them together.
