My friend Richard Tunley has struck again, this time with a piece for ARKHANGELSK.

It’s a stunning instrumental, moody and shifty and lovely. Just astonishing, as always. The cellist is Deryn Cullen, who also has other remarkable work.

Beauty is restorative. Give this a listen.

No, I don’t write music. But I do love music.

I am also privileged to have as a friend Mr. Richard Tunley, who DOES write music (among other things) and is tremendously talented. He wrote a theme song for THE COLD BETWEEN, which you can listen to here:

The vocalist is Jess Cahill, who’s done some other wonderful things as well.

I’ve also got a couple of Spotify playlists, one for each book (track lists below for those who don’t Spotify):
