Rock band stowaway

December 08th, 2020

Vancouver author and TV producer, Andrea Fehsenfeld has published A Rainbow Like You (Free Form $15.99) about a fictional touring rock band headed by Adrian “Jazzer” Johnson. With a recent hit record, Johnson is under pressure to write another popular album just as he is feeling creatively spent. He also is about to start a new world tour. Things get even more complicated when Johnson finds a young female runaway, Hastings Sinclair hiding in his tour bus. Johnson is afraid of the backlash of having someone so young near him. Then he finds out that Sinclair has her own musical talent: she’s a synesthete who can see music in colour. She helps Johnson get over his creative block but with surprising consequences. Fehsenfeld is herself a rock and roll fan. She says she caught the concert bug as a teenager and has since taken in more than 400 concerts around the world. 9781775209133
