Overview

Believe in Me by Jason Warburg

“Written with authenticity and emotional honesty, Jason Warburg’s 'Believe in Me' thrusts the reader into the combustible world of political activism and arena rock, where cynicism, power trips, and egos live together in unhealthy codependency. Warburg’s first-person tale digs deep and hits all the right notes, finding the humanity that makes activism compelling and music powerful. I believed every word.” –Roger L. Trott, author of 'Getting in Tune'

'Believe in Me' (Wampus Multimedia) uses music as backdrop and texture for the story of young campaign operative Tim Green, the still-grieving son of a recently deceased music writer who finds himself drawn into the orbit of Jordan Lee, a charismatic, politically active rock singer with issues of his own. In rapid succession, scenes move from their first meeting on a plane to a recording studio and side-stage at a stadium concert; as Lee’s band continues its massive reunion tour, they hopscotch through airports and arenas all across the U.S, not to mention a cemetery, and the entire 22nd floor of the Ritz Carlton in New York City.

'Believe in Me' is a story about heroes and believers, regret and redemption, fathers and sons, and the healing powers of rock and roll, written by one of America's top independent music critics.

About the Author

Music has played a central role in Jason Warburg's life since he sat in his older brothers' bedroom at age three listening to them play A Hard Day's Night over and over again. A recovering political junkie, in his thirties he moved into the non-profit world, while enjoying a parallel career as a music writer. The latter includes 15 years with independent music review site The Daily Vault (www.dailyvault.com), where he has served as editor since 2003. He is the author of more than 600 album reviews, interviews and feature stories, in addition to dozens of op-ed pieces and speeches. Jason describes his debut novel Believe in Me as a story not just centered around but "infused with" music, a journey across America populated by musical figures both real and imagined, whose outcome ultimately hinges on the healing power of rock and roll.

Having played in bands most of my life, the first thing I look for in a novel about music is authenticity. Does it ring with musical truth, does it hit all the right notes? In the case of "Believe in Me," the answer is a definite yes. Beyond that, this novel makes you feel the pain and joy of its characters, not in a manipulative way, but in a way that speaks to what we all experience when searching for what matters in life.
