Decemberists' Colin Meloy Thought Music Would Help His Writing
At Pacific Northwest Chapter's Studio Summit 2015 Glenn Lorbecki interviewed singer/songwriter Colin Meloy of the Decemberists with his producer/engineer Tucker Martine at Martine's Flora studio. Meloy was unsure about his creative writing ambitions and had been told to go into the world to gain life experience before pursuing a Master's degree, so he decided to keep writing as Plan B while he went to Portland to do music for his new Plan A … and succeeded. In addition to fronting additional bands and composing a rock opera, Meloy's fiction goals were also met as his Wildwood Chronicles young adult series took hold in the market, illustrated by his wife.
