May Your Memory Be Eternal

I Met Tazia Rochelle May when she was 14 at church summer camp. I was 19. She had a spark of life in her. A few years later, when our paths crossed again she was 16, full of rock n’ roll energy and teen angst. I wrote Come To The Mountain, Long Division, and T.M.S. (Tazia May Song) about and for her. We stayed in touch over the years. Sadly she died last week. When I heard she passed this song met my tears. Tazia you will be missed. May Your Memory Be Eternal May your memory be eternal* may your future be your best May the pain that you’ve suffered cause you no further distress May the God of “Our Father”* put your demons to rest May love replace longing, may you be fully blessed May you have a light in the darkest of times (x2) May your memory be eternal please know we miss you May the peace you were seeking, no longer elude May the God of “Our Father” surround and undo The damages of this life, May you know be renewed May you have a light in the darkness In the loneliest of times When all …

McDougall

McDougall is a foot stomping, bluegrass hustling one-man-band based in Portland, Oregon. Scott’s music has elements of folk, gospel, bluegrass, blues, and always a good amount of rock n’ roll. His live show is not to be missed and each record he makes takes a huge step-forward. Distinctively intense vocals also characterize this creative take on traditional Americana. I like to say Scott McDougall is our rock n’ roll priest because the first 2 times I met him were on significant days in my life. We played shows together the night Tessa and I got engaged and the day we buried my Grandfather. McDougall is contributing “Ones and Twos” to the Nate Allen Kickstarter Mixtape.
