Californian budding saxophone star, Solomon Alber, is not your typical jazz musician. Residing in San Francisco, Solomon has devoted his life to the pursuit of gaining a deeper knowledge and understanding of music.
I was honoured to connect with Solomon through Kromatix_ who couldn’t stop raving about this world-class saxophonist. Solomon learned about my novel and accompanying novel soundtrack when I launched back in May. I was excited to interview Solomon as he’s the first musician who read my work.
For me, the part that stood out in Solomon’s Instagram profile was that he was a Berklee graduate. Many ‘Hold on please, Emily’ readers are unaware that Berklee was the real-life school that inspired the setting for my novel. It was the protagonist, Emily, who wanted early acceptance into a school as prestigious as Berklee. As an author, you are constantly in awe when you meet people who resemble your fictional characters. On a side note, the parallels between Solomon and my novel are unreal.
