IN MEMORY OF JESSICA RIDGEWAY - NEW SONG AVAILABLE NOW|
On Friday, October 12, 2012, police confirmed that the body found in Arvada, Colorado was indeed that of Jessica Ridgeway, a 10-year-old girl who had gone missing the prior week. Several of my friends have been experiencing grief and loss recently, so the topic which had already been weighing heavily on my mind of late was brought into stark relief at this tragic news. After reading through Facebook comments from friends, particularly those in the metro Denver area, I sat down to work on the songs that I'd be performing that Sunday at Living Water Spiritual Community (a Unity church). While rehearsing a cover song I felt would be appropriate to help my community find healing, I felt another song trying to come through. It began with the phrase "all that remains is love," then a chord progression followed and the words began to pour out.
After performing this song on Sunday, it became clear that it was what many in the community needed to help them grieve the loss of this beautiful child and their own personal losses. With the help of my friend Andy Ard, who offered his home studio and expertise, I recorded the song and offer it now as an mp3 download. It is my hope that this song brings some level of peace and healing to those who are experiencing grief and loss of a loved one. "All That Remains" is offered on a "love offering" basis (pay what you choose). Simply enter the amount of your choosing ($0 for free download).
