Detach and Target’s Musical Inspiration

The characters in Detach and Target are animated, like many of us, by a love for music. The soundtrack of the book is evident, with references to acts as diverse as Van Halen, Loreena McKennitt, Rush, and Jimmy Buffett. Kendra’s boat, which is nearly a character in itself, is named the Blackbird II, in honor of the Alter Bridge song Blackbird.

We’ve collected some of the songs behind the book. Some appear in the text, and others served as the backbeat to the writing process. Enjoy!
