Marcus Amaker’s Playlist for His Poetry Collection “Hold What Makes You Whole”

“Music has always been essential to my creative process. It’s my first love. When I was ten years old, I wrote my first ‘song’ and I made ‘albums’ on cassette tapes. Those words are in quotations because I didn’t understand much about being a musician; all I knew was that I wanted to be Prince and write, produce, arrange, and do the artwork for all my creations. I carry that spirit with me more than 30 years later.”
