Ward & Weft: Playlist


As it is for many other writers, music is an important part of my writing. Not necessarily as a soundtrack to accompany the keyboard, but to make a place or time more tangible, or to understand a character through some of their favorite songs. If I’m writing historical, I might delve into music from that period or something from a particular place.

Ward & Weft is set in the early twentieth century, but my soundtrack was decidedly more modern! Instead, I had a rule that all the artists had to be Welsh. Griffith, the hero in Ward & Weft, left his childhood home—and boyhood crush—in Wales and traveled Europe for years, collecting magical knowledge, before returning home. Griffith’s Welsh-ness is important to him, so that formed my theme.

Music can tie a person to a place and time, and while composing this playlist I thought about the first time I heard some of the artists. Where does music take you?
