On Sunday, I’m going back to the studio to record the ballads from the ‘Count The Colors (For Marcella)’ album. All those songs mean a lot to me, but this one is especially profound as Marcella wrote all the words.
It started with a letter that she wrote me and arranged to have mailed to me after she died. A few of the lines resonated with me so strongly that I knew I needed to turn them into music.
There are lines from text messages she sent me, too, including a poem she wrote after our first date, and a reference to the illustration and phrase that she left on a walking bridge in the forest at our favorite park. “Cancer can kill you or it can awaken your soul to a life you never knew existed.”
What a beautiful gal she was. Here is one of my tributes, “No Grays And Blues.”
Love and be loved.
