With a title like Memphis Black: the Rockers of Steel, would you think that Memphis Black is the name of the band, or is it just me?

But I suspect it’s not just me. Memphis Black would make a fantastic band name.

Always a risk when you come up with a killer band name. Just sayin’…

Anyway, the Memphis Black of the title seems to be a character, not the band. Lookit:

From bedroom performances to center stage, Memphis Black’s dreams have come true.

Together with his band mates—Finn, River, and Billy B—he takes some time for fun in the sun in Miami while gathering inspiration to finish their first full-length album. Some down time before hitting the road to tour the country, spreading their kind of rock like an STD.

Tallia Priest, a preacher’s daughter grew up next door to Madison Black, her polar opposite and very best friend. Tallia has harbored a crush on Madison’s older brother Memphis for a lifetime.

A boy like him would never notice a girl like her, yet he did … once.

After a tough freshman year of college, Madison invites Tallia to join her in Miami for a much needed break. Madison fails to mention they will be staying with ‘Steel Total Destruction.’

When Tallia arrives, there is no way for a stunned Memphis to miss the transformation of the once awkward, innocent girl next door.

Forbidden desires must be hidden, lines cannot be blurred, and no one can ever know.

Will the heat in Miami tempt them even further? Will buried secrets destroy lives? Can a broken heart ever be mended?

It’s all fun and games until someone gets rocked.

So I’m confused. Memphis and Madison. Who is Madison? Why does Madison matter? Are they easier to keep straight than they are right here?

How can a band be center stage if they haven’t recorded their first full-length album? How can they afford to take time in the sun? Who is ‘Steel Total Destruction’ (and why the quotes?)

But this has a good vibe to it, a freshness in the voice. That makes me want to read it, right there.

Bring it.
