Broken Heartstrings

Broken Heartstrings


Teens from all walks of life, some know each other while others are strangers. Soon, they all end up at a hole in the wall music store on NYC, and their lives will never be the same. A shop, a band, a record deal, love, and maybe something more...

609 readers have visited Broken Heartstrings since paperflowers932 created it.


Welcome to Tone Deaf, the least known about music shop this side of the Rockies! Note the sarcastic enthusiasm. This place is usually empty, but it's a musical wonderland if you give it a chance. And chance in itself has nothing to do with what is about to happen. One pianist/ keyboardist coming in one day out of pure curiosity is not "chance". A guitarist and a bass player ducking in to escape the rain is not "chance". A drummer running in to hide from some cops is not "chance". And one singer working here since age twelve is definitely not "chance". This is destiny, nothing more, nothing less. So, when these five are thrown together, add in the peculiar British owner of Tone Deaf, and a Youtube account, what do you get?

You get Broken Heartstrings.
