This past weekend I was so sad to hear about the passing of Dolores O’Riordan. She was the lead singer of the band, The Cranberries, with a voice unlike anyone who has ever made music. So unique, distinct, and beautiful. Many people don’t know this but I used to make music with a group called Kill Your Darlings. Singing has always been a release for me…part of my creative side and something that’s meant a lot to me over the years.From as long as I can remember I was obsessed with the Cranberries…the first group I ever felt a true emotional connection to.It’s sad when your idols leave this world…people who have shaped you and moved you, and they don’t even know it. I hope she is at peace and I am thankful for the mark she’s left on this world through her talent.
