An Album of Fanfiction Music

This is an album completely based on C.S. Lewis's "The Screwtape Letters" in which Screwtape, a highly placed under-secretary to Lucifer, writes letters to his nephew Wormwood, a young demon who is seeking advice on how to tempt the soul of a man who remains unnamed. But this album has a twist, for while Lewis's story is famously known for being told from perspective of the demon Screwtape, this album is performed from the perspective of the unnamed man who is being tempted and sheds a new light on this often overlooked character as he struggles to discern what is happening to him. Or, as one of the singers of the band Maggie Heath comments, "In the simplest form it's our fan fiction from the perspective of the human basically." The brother sister duo of this band combine the dark themes of Lewis's work with beautiful vocals and elements of folk rock instrumentals to create a truly spell-binding environment which invites all listeners to experience this story in a new and thought provoking way.
