Ah, fuck me. This sucks. His music was perfect for moody evenings alone. On a completely selfish note, I'm sad that I'll never be able to see him perform live.

 

RIP.

Was listening to his music just last night and I found out by word this morning. He was an extremely talented songwriter and musician who I was anticipating following throughout a lifetime. I'm sorry to see him go, surely short of his prime. There's no doubt his words will be sent out to the train lines...R.I.P soul brother
