Updated: Sep 18, 2023

Andrew H. Housley shares a playlist of songs that informed his journey and his new novel.

Music has the incredible power to inspire, connect, and evoke emotions within us. For many artists, their creative process is deeply intertwined with the music they listen to. One such artist is Andrew H. Housley, whose novel 'Invisible Sun' intrigues audiences with its hauntingly beautiful and tragic subject matter. Here's a list of songs that influenced 'Invisible Sun' and explore how they contributed to the creation of this upcoming novel.

"I heard some of these songs through open windows or in coffee shops as I wandered the streets of New Orleans. Others are more personal to me. Songs I'd use to center myself with to prepare to write each day," Housley says.

All playlists are designed for collaboration; Andrew warmly invites his readers to join the conversation and contribute songs that were inspired by their reading experience of 'Invisible Sun.'
