The heart-thudding YA trilogy from writer and musician Chris Russell

Charlie Bloom never wanted to be ‘with the band’. She’s happiest out of the spotlight, behind her camera, unseen and unnoticed. But when she’s asked to take backstage photos for hot new boy band Fire&Lights, she can’t pass up the chance.

Catapulted into a world of paparazzi and backstage bickering, Charlie soon becomes caught between gorgeous but damaged frontman, Gabriel West, and his boy-next-door bandmate Olly Samson. Then, as the boys’ rivalry threatens to tear the band apart, Charlie stumbles upon a mind-blowing secret, hidden in the lyrics of their songs…

chrisI’m Chris Russell, author of Songs About a Girl.

On top of writing books, I’m also a musician, and have been in a band called The Lightyears since I was thirteen.

It was always my intention to bring Fire&Lights to life by writing and recording some of the music in the novels, and below you can check out the lyric video for ‘Dance With You’ – the single that the band release in book one – along with videos featuring other music clips from the trilogy. Enjoy!

***Please note: These songs contains spoilers, so it’s strongly recommended that you read the novel before you listen to them. 🙂
