The Songs of Duo Ex Machina

The five novellas of the Duo Ex Machina series are full of song lyrics I wrote to go with the stories.

Some are by the two-man band Duo Ex Machina (comprising the two lead characters, Frank Capriano and Milo Bertolone, who are also boyfriends). Others are by their friend, Gabriella Valli, and yet others are songs on the radio or that are played during Milo’s time as a contestant on an ice dancing show (in DeM 4: Kiss and Cry).

Now, in partnership with Joshua King of Golden Hour Studios, some of those lyrics are becoming actual songs, released on Apple Music, Spotify and other services!

Songs so far:

  • Hymn/Him (from Kiss and Cry) featuring vocals by Loic Mamet of The Sea Birds
  • High (from Number One Fan) featuring Jenni Powell of Riff Raiders on vocals
  • Shotgun Breakup, featuring both Jenni and Loic.
  • Coming in 2022 Copper Beaches (inspired by John Watson)
