Even When I’m Gone was written for and inspired by Michigan-born Kendal Lividini, a 17-year-old girl who lost her life to Acute Myelogenous Leukemia in 2011, and whose dream was to share her story in an effort to bring awareness and a cure for childhood cancer. Her parents re-telling of Kendal’s strength and bravery in the face of terminal illness, led to Minnesota based band, Quietdrive, writing and delivering an emotionally charged anthem in the style of U2, Coldplay and Snow Patrol.
Even When I'm Gone provides a heart wrenching question on the meaning of life and swallows you whole with compassion. You take something different away with every powerful listen.
