Endorsements for the anthology:

Inspired by Music is an eclectic mixtape from a friend. Tosca gives way to Tool, Mahler to Mama Cass, each track taking you by surprise, stirring memory with a little bit of magic. From Stradivarius, to Flying V, to a piano on a desert island, this compilation buzzes with “potent alchemy.” Oz Hardwick, Poet & Professor of English, Leeds Trinity University

These poems celebrate the interplay between poetry and music: what we listen to and where we listen to it, the soundtracks that accompany us while we dance, air-conduct and lip-sync our way through our lives. They show us how vital music is to our existence, how we engage with it and react to its many voices.  Mark Connors, Poet and Managing Editor at Yaffle Press
