When I was ten years old I came across my father’s old high school cornet, which started me on the musical path I still follow today. While the contemporary music scene puzzled him, in his own quiet way my dad was always supportive. In 2005 he passed away at the age of 64 due to complications from cancer. Shortly after, as I reflected on his life, I composed Simple Lines.
