When it comes to writing music I tend to take weeks, months, or even years to become fully satisfied with a song.
However, this one was different.
I started and finished this song in a little over two weeks and to this very day it remains to be one of my favorite songs that I have ever written. I showed it to my singing teacher (Ron Feldman) and he ended up writing some very melodic and soothing piano licks over top of it.
At the start of my senior year in high school Ron was admitted in to hospice because of a brain tumor. As time passed by he began to grow weaker and he lost all of the feeling he had in his left hand. Regardless of how weak he became we continued our weekly lessons until his passing. During these lessons he would often forget what our previous lessons consisted of due to his memory loss and he would repeatedly ask me to play “Chemistry”. So for the last four weeks of our lessons it became tradition to pick Ron up, put him in his wheelchair, bring him to his piano, and play Chemistry together.
Now, after graduating high school, I am finally recording this special song. It has a 1950’s style sound and I’m extremely excited for its release. Doug Mathews killed it on the upright bass a few days age. I am grateful to be around such talent and I am excited to dedicate this song not only to Ron but to every single person I’ve ever loved.
