Veritas – And Walk Now Gently Through The Fire

Just been thinking about the first time I met Chris, interviewing him and Pat for Veritas’ CD release. His mom baked us cookies. And the last time, grabbing beers in Toronto after the Polaris gala. Anyone who heard him play, with Women or Azeda Booth or Dodos or his solo work, can vouch that he was a fantastic, creative guitar player. And anyone who talked to him can vouch that he was as friendly and easygoing as it gets, and was consistently blown away that he was in the position that he was in. And things were only getting better.

That’s all I’m going to say, because it’s still strange to think about. I’m not sure why this song feels appropriate, but it does. My condolences to his family and friends.
