“Losing A Friend” from off the album “Junction” (2016)
This song took a different kind of turn for me when writing and recording it. I had a bass riff that I liked and thought I would use it as the hook for the song. When recording it, however, I felt the strings and guitars needed to be out front more and there you go.
As far as the inspiration for the song … Well, when I was in grade school we lost a good friend to cancer. It didn’t make much sense to us then and still doesn’t today how a someone can be taken away when they’re 13 years old. It’s a terrible thing. I wrote the track to try to capture the confused feeling I had about it then … and now.
