But onwards and upwards! I was putzing around on wikipedia (aka, stalking my favorite bands) and stumbled upon this little tidbit:
Becky Stark, lead singer of the awesome, happy alterna-folk rock band Lavender Diamond, wrote the songs for the City of Ember movie and plays the SongMaster in the film.
But perhaps even cooler: Ms. Stark will also be starring in a film version of a short story from Miranda July‘s most recent book, No Belongs Here More Than You. (Which, incidentally, is definitely not a children’s book. Not even YA. But unbelievably heartbreaking and hilarious. I highly recommend it.)
