One day Elton John came over to my house. We didn’t think we were going to write a song that day. He sat down at my Rhodes keyboard and said “how about this“? When you listen to “After All”, the first thing you’ll hear is that very Rhodes playing the melody of the song. It was the first thing he played, like it just fell out of the sky. My mouth dropped. The whole skeleton of the song was then written in about 15 minutes. Elton‘s musical genius and presence brought so much inspiration and joy to me that day, especially in a time when it seemed like the world was never coming back. This is the song that started it all! I’m so honored to be a part of your album Elton, as you are a huge reason why I pursued music in the first place. And thank you to my right hand jkash for lyrically bringing all of this together. I can’t wait for you to hear it. CP
