In Memory of Adam T. Wallington
A co-write with a dear friend of mine, Adam Wallington.
We initially wrote it in 1998 and re-visited it in 2014.
We had always planned to work on it more in order to bring it a more "country" feel but unfortunately, in 2020 Adam was diagnosed with ALS.
He passed away January 24th 2021 at the age of 46.
You'll see “Meow” referenced by friends of Adam and the meaning of it is...Adam loved cats and has had many over the years. He would both greet and part ways with friends with a "Meow". He had this incredible pretend voice that he would talk to his pets with and his world revolved around them.
Adam was a fantastic writing partner, a bandmate (New York Minute) and an incredible support in working on/producing my demos for Makin' A Life and the launch of that album.
He produced the contest video for Last Man Standing and we shared the stage again at Hugh's room (Toronto) in early 2016 where we performed it live for judges.
Adam had this incredible deep, smooth and very soulful singing voice that was one of a kind.
I can honestly say, I'm still in shock that he's gone.
I am releasing the song, mastered as is, in memory of an immense talent and dear friend; the world lost a good one and he'll be greatly missed.
Till we meet again my friend.
