Everyone has a significant track of music that can really effect them and change their mood or transform a situation but what if you, via a very special MP3 player, could deliver that piece of music at just the right time?  This delightfully quirky, poignant, magical debut follows Davie who is given the chance to help others through the power of music - it's simply brilliant and deserves to be on your reading list...

Trackman Synopsis

Set in Edinburgh, Trackman tells the uplifting story of Davie Watts, a young man haunted by the death of his little brother and the separation of his parents. The novel charts Davie’s life as a chance encounter with a homeless man leads to him taking possession of a magical MP3 player. Davie grows increasingly obsessed with the MP3 player and escapes into his fantasy where he is the Trackman: a superhero-like figure who helps others by playing them songs which carry significance to the listener. However, Davie is continuously shadowed by his past and the memories of his brother. While helping other people, will he find the time to help himself?
