"This is not a Trump rally", said Kim from the stage, "This is Political Music Club and we write protest songs!”
In the age of Trump and Twitter and children separated at the border, 3 college-town musicians - a contemplative songwriter, a punk, and a hippie - form a club to write protest songs against the current administration and to seek out like-minded souls.
Using a unique blend of song lyrics, political debate, and humor the novel Political Music Club tells the story of three individual voices trying to make a change in a very big world.
Inspired by three (real) albums of protest music released in 2018 - Retake the Middle Ground, Unfollow, and World Almost Over? - the novel follows the travails of three (fictional) songwriters as they deal with issues from writer's block to physical intimidation, from trolls to the seemingly endless social media feeds devoted to politics.
