I am a folksinger and songwriter with a passion for radical activism, geekery, and magick.
This song is a tribute to Sunil “Sunny” Tripathi, a young man whose disappearance and death is the subject of an internationally acclaimed documentary, Help Us Find Sunil Tripathi. I had seen the posters his family and the army of friends and volunteers put up literally all over Providence, and it was only after his death that I heard the ugly rumors that started online about him, implicating him as a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing. The lyrics just came to me one morning many months after the fact. I recorded this live at my friend Ben’s tiny desk at my office.
