With Me Anyway

 

For Gammy

I wrote this song for my grandmother who passed away on April 10th, 2004 at the age of 92. My grandmother suffered from dementia during the last six years of her life. She was a vibrant woman who led an active, productive, meaningful life. This song depicts our time together during the last few years of her life. I hope that one day we will all be able to traverse our later years with joy and dignity and not be robbed of who we are, and who we love.

LISA MERI: Vocal and Acoustic Guitar
SATO KNUDSEN: Cello

I had the joy and honor of working with Sato Knudsen  (the very humble and gifted principal cellist at the BSO) on this project. It’s been the highlight of my studio experience.

Have a listen:
