2009 was a rough year. I think I went to more funerals in that one year than in the past ten combined. One thing that really hit me was how hard it is to find something to say to people who are mourning the person they just lost. I never knew what to say, so I just repeated the same the old adage, “Sorry for your loss.” But those words seemed very incomplete and hollow.

I wanted to write a song that said what I couldn’t put into words. This song is about remembering those you have lost and celebrating their memory. When you lose someone, remember— they’re only a memory away!

About the Curator - Andrew McCluskey

The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.

Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician.  Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works.  It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
