In memory of Peter Danison, 1952-2015.
My goal was to write a batch of songs with the common theme of childhood, both from the perspective of my childhood self and my middle-aged-dad self.
I've been making music since I was about ten years old. I've written thousands of bits and peices of music and several dozen finished songs. I was motivated by the death of my childhood musical hero, Peter Danison, to put together this collection of songs.
