"Still I Dream" - free download

A couple of years ago I was talking to a gentleman about singing at a fund-raising event, and he told me about his grandaughter. She was a streetwalker on Vancouver's East Side, and was one of the women who had gone missing from there in recent weeks, and was quite possibly dead. I could hear the sadness in his voice as he told me the story.

It made me think about how we lose people in our lives through misunderstandings and wrong turns.... mistakes we make... actions we regret.

So I sat down and wrote a song called 'I Will Remember You'. I soon discovered that Sarah McLachlan had a hit song with the same name. So I rewrote my lyrics and called it 'Still I Dream of You'.

It really means a lot to me.

After I recorded the lead vocal, I listened to the playback and I liked what I heard. The ethereal nature of my voice seemed to express the longing I felt as I thought about those in my life that have taken paths I cannot see, and how they are lost to me. Those who know me know I'm a big fan of harmony & creativity with the vocals on my songs... but for this one, I decided to leave it as one simple quiet voice.

I hope you find it meaningful.
