This is one of my absolute favorite singer/songwriters and one of my absolute favorite songs. I could listen to him sing this song all day long. So who and what is it?
Today's Muse is...Let It Be Me by Ray LaMontagne.
I found about about this amazing artist (whose last name I cannot pronounce) by listening to Pandora. This particular song is my most favorite of his, though he has many, many good ones. Not only is it beautiful and have this peaceful yet serious ambiance, it also fits a particular future character of mine. Specifically, this song exemplifies the feelings this character has for my MC. Unfortunately, I don't get to write about him until book two, and where this song would play in the background of an important scene isn't until book three. So right now I use this song to daydream about my two favorite characters finally finding one another.
The video below shows Ray LaMontagne playing this in a studio. I literally fall asleep listening to this it is so amazing. Definitely makes me dream up stuff for my characters. Please take a listen! I hope you fall for it as much as I did and do every time! ^_^
