News: Poem Adapted to Song

October 4, 2011

One of the poems I have in my upcoming collection, Whiteout, has just been released as a song on the new album of folk group The Once. It’s called “Song for Memory,” and I originally published it in The New Welsh Review. It was a great process working with the band to craft it into a song and I’m very pleased, in part because I was already a fan of the band before they asked me to participate. Who knew rock stars read poetry?!

You can listen to and order the album here, at their record label’s (Borealis/Universal) site. My song is the last in the list. In fact, the album is called “Row Upon Row of the People They Know”, which is the refrain from the song itself.
