I love so much music and so many different kinds, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Can they all be my favorites? I like the fluid, aquatic sound and R&B vocals of Banks. I like the easy, breezy style and simple yet soothing harmonies of the Eagles. I like the melodic and thrashy sound of Killer Be Killed. My taste in music is literally all over the place.
I tend to move in phases. I’ll go through binges, where I’ll listen to everything a particular artist has put out, or solely one type of music. I can remember summers when all my sister and I wanted to listen to was Sheryl Crow, and shared, long stretches of Lenny Kravitz. When I was going for my B.S., I used to listen to only Silversun Pickups during my 45-minute commute to campus. Autumn always brings me back to Type O Negative.
This summer, I’m on a Lana Del Rey binge, but that could end at any moment; I’ve been listening to a lot of Fleetwood Mac. (Can we just talk about how beautiful the song “Rhiannon” is?)
Sex. Drugs. And… Boy Bands?!
Win a Copy of Amplified and Tempo
Mixing rock bands and boy bands may seem like a strange thing to do, but that’s the premise of my ESX series. Koty Jackson, the heart throb of boy band ESX, wants out. When he meets Jett Costa and finds out that she needs a guitarist for her band Perpetual Smile, he is determined to land the spot in the band… and get the girl!
The ESX series is part band saga, part romance, and part self-discovery. It’s New Adult, which means all of the characters are in their twenties and are trying to figure out how to survive being a grownup. Later this month, the 5th book in the series will be out, and the sixth and final book will be out in September.
