“Jeff Breeze, friend to the entire New England music community, passed away unexpectedly on Monday. He was the host of WMBR’s Pipeline! radio show. He was gracious enough to have us on that program more times than I can count. He had a big impact on me personally, and I was shocked at his passing. I was supposed to put James to bed the night he died, but Hilary knew I was bummed out and she took care of it. I used that time to whisper this song together for Jeff.” — excerpted from the song’s Bandcamp page

I wrote a song, “The Last Time You See A Friend” for Jeff after his passing. It’s for a couple others we’ve recently lost, too, but the specifics in the song are about my relationship with Jeff.

It’s a sad song, but I think Jeff would’ve dug it.

“Goodbye, Jeff / we’ve got to hold on”…
