Old Broken Playlist

Old Broken Playlist

Old Broken Road launches next Tuesday! We’re officially only one week away! So, to tide you over until it’s launch I have assembled a playlist of songs that helped inspire the book. It available to listen for free everywhere:

Check out the full playlist on Rdio ≫
Spotify | YouTube

Below is the full tracklist. Click on an artist name to find out more about that specific musician/band or click the song title to listen to that particular song on YouTube. I’ve tried to link to Wikipedia articles, but my taste is eclectic so if a band doesn’t have a Wiki page I tried to find the next best link.

As with the playlist for The Stars Were Right, I had a blast putting this together. It is interesting for me to listen to them side by side. I think each does a good job in carrying the tone of the book. You don’t have to take my word for it. You can find out what I mean when Old Broken Road drops next week. ;-)

What do you think? Don’t hesitate to leave me a comment below or shoot me an email and let me know. I would love the feedback!
