Earlier I wrote about growing up in Rochester, where “Lake Effect” is set. Today, I’m bringing you the music of the story and of Rochester, as I know it.
Most of it falls somewhere in the Irish folk/pop/rock spectrum. Most of the older songs I’ve been listening to since I was a kid. All of it is the music I had on in the car when I was a teenager and had on loop while we wrote the story. There’s still nothing that can take me back to the years I was in high school and home on break from college, angry I was still in Rochester but too in love with the landscape to be unhappy in a way that ever made sense to anyone else.
Some of it’s happy. A lot of it’s not. All of it is the musical landscape of Kyle and Daniel and the world they come home to, to get married.
