I'm really excited about this song, the second release from The DePatie Melt.
The song was started by Terri Knudsen in 2019 and was a reaction to the sudden death of a 19 year old friend of ours by epilepsy. It was originally intended for us and her family and friends to help us process the grief. We brought it to Will Faeber who contributed words and music and we realized that it was uplifting and could be a good song for anyone who was going through the loss of a loved one.
My co-writers, Will Faerber, Terri Knudsen, and I have decided to donate 100 percent of the sales of this song for a time to the Epilepsy Foundation. The most direct way to support the cause is by a purchase of the download.
Bandcamp is unique in that it gives you the option to pay what you want for the song, in case you want to make a larger contribution. When I send in the check I will also be rounding the numbers up as an acknowledgement of all the shares, likes and streams and all of your other support that doesn't directly generate (much) revenue.
You can read more about our friend or make a contribution at the Epilepsy Foundation's website.
