Songs inspired by books @TheBookshopBand

The Bookshop BandThe Bookshop Band  write songs inspired by books. What could be better!

Four years ago in Bath they collaborated with their local independent bookshop ‘Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights’ “to inject music into author events and this has led to four recorded albums, tours, festival appearances, praise and airplay from Bob Harris and other BBC Radio presenters and even a commission from the V&A Museum.”

Their Songs (check out the full list) have been based on a variety of books, such as –

And Other Dystopias’ – Dark themes in literature

Revolutions’ -Revolution, reinvention, revelation and reformation

‘Into the Farthest Reaches’ – Extreme people in extreme predicaments

The wide range includes Rachel Joyce’s Perfect to Tim Winton’s Eyrie and they’ve created over a hundred songs from books so far. They are currently looking for sponsorship to record further songs
