My grandfather passed away on Friday. He was, simply, my all-time favorite person. I wish I could tell each of you about him for hours.
“Grandfather Clock” is a voice memo of a meditation for him, live from my childhood bedroom. The ending, which I “composed” (thought of) first, is the sound of me running down the stairs in my parents’ home in Massachusetts, jumping down the last few steps to rattle the chimes of their old grandfather clock—a gift to them from my grandpa. When I ran down them as a kid and heard the sound, I was always reminded of him.
Note: Yeah, I know. The majority of my songs are about my family. *shrugs* Love’m.

Listen to some Chet Baker and have a cold Miller Lite for Grandpa.
