Music to Write ByiTunes Logo 88x31-2

Oiling up the writing gears can be a challenge.  Some music is too stimulating for writing--I can't write and dance.  Some is too sedate--lulls me to sleep.  The music that works one day--might have to be put away for a few months as it loses it freshness.  Here are some of my favorite artists for music to write by. 

Music to write by: recommended by AO Readers


 Night Sessions

His music gives the muses a boot and  gets my juices flowing:
"Night Sessions" CD, Chris Botti -- especially the 'Light the Stars' track.
Overall, the whole CD is a nice mix of upbeat and reflective ( and the artist isn't hard on the eyes, either). A little bit of trivia insight on the album is that the project really WAS a series of "night sessions"; none of the tracks were done on a sound stage.  The entire album was recorded at night in a vacant house, and the mood and acoustics reflect that.
(And, I am not related to Mr.Botti or employed by him--just love this CD).

And, love your website               -- Candy Killion, Freelance Writer
