Writing Music

“What music do you write to?” That has to be the most common question of the week! I don’t know if it’s the summer heat or all the concerts, but everyone seems to have music on the brain! And since this is a topic I love (and First Draught has covered) I thought I’d post an update.

The one go-to piece of music I write everything to is Snow Patrol’s “The Lightning Strike”. It’s played a part in everything I’ve ever written, and when I get stuck, this is what I listen to! It asks questions and sounds kind of haunting. It’s perfect writing mojo! Take a look at what I love about it:

What if this storm ends?
And leaves us nothing
Except a memory
A distant echo.

Kind of sounds like everything I’ve ever written, right? Especially when you add in these lyrics:

I want to see you
As you are now
Every single day
That I am living

Painted in flames
All peeling thunder
Be the lightning in me
That strikes relentless

Take a listen for yourself! And then scroll down for links to all the First Draught goodness!
