My Current Influences #1: Nicola Roberts

06 Feb

I’m generally a calm guy, which is good when it comes to dealing with problems in life, but when it comes to my writing, calm equals boring far too often. I often don’t up the pace enough in my stories unless I have something driving me, and like many authors, I turn to music for help: driving pumping beats.

One of my favorite albums from 2011 came from ex-Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts. Energy through the roof, just the right amount of angst and positive thinking, plus the title track of the album, Cinderella’s Eyes, is a fun romp through fairy tales. What better to write fantasy to, than fantasy-themed pop?

I’ll leave you with the video to Beat of My Drum, the first single from the album, along with a link to NME’s review.
