Murder in the City – The Man Who Saved Two Notch’s song


Ever since a young reader by the name of Jeremy James asked me what the theme song was for The Takers, I’ve tried to assign a song to all my books.  The Takers’ song is Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd.  In fact, all The Oz Chronicles books are Pink Floyd songs.  My new book, The Man Who Saved Two Notch is different.  First of all, it’s not a Young Adult novel.  It’s a post apocalyptic novel for adults.  Yay, adults!   It’s full of violence and profanity and my attempts at dark humor.  It also has an Old West feel to it, and that’s where the theme song issue takes root.

A few years ago, a friend introduced me to the Avett Brothers.  I believe they are what’s known as a New Grass band.  I love their music.  In searching for a song for The Man Who Saved Two Notch, I found one of their songs to be exactly what I was looking for.  Its soulful and macabre and sad and funny and moving, everything I want TMWSTN to be.  I give you Murder in the City, the theme song for my new book.  (Unfortunately, Sony Music won’t let you watch the video on my blog.  You’ll have to click on the link provided on the video window to watch the video on Youtube.  Don’t blame the Avett Brothers.  Listen to the song.  Buy their music.)

  1. The Avett Brothers are fantastic. There are a lot of good bands doing new wave bluegrassy-type music. I am also addicted to the Farewell Drifters and Punch Brothers right now.
