Killing Me Softly
Whitefox Publishing Ltd
In the town of Blackjack, Nevada, washed-up singer Jimmy Wayne is down on his luck, playing covers to a limited and uninterested audience in a third-rate casino.
One morning he awakens to find that everything has changed. Not only has he accidentally murdered Wendy, his girlfriend, but he's also written the best song he's ever produced. Is it the act of killing that helps him create his finest work? And if it is, should he go for a full album? Wrestling with his desire for success, his grasp of morality and haunted by his past mistakes, Jimmy starts searching for the most terrible people he has ever known. 'I don't want to root for a serial killer, but dammit, Jimmy Wayne makes it hard for me. When you enter his dark yet funny world, all bets are off!' CHRISTOFFER 'KID' ANDERSEN, multiple Grammy nominee and CEO, Greaseland Studios, San Jose, California 'I was Jimmy Wayne. OK, I'm not a serial killer, and maybe you're not a musician, but the darkly humorous world of Jimmy Wayne just draws you in.' MIKE ZITO, CEO Gulf Coast Records and five-time BMA winner 'A downbeat anti-hero's tale of dubious salvation is documented via killer songs in a page-turning plot, delivering a satisfying heady cocktail of music and word.'
