Most people go to Mexico to get a tan. But when Daniel Wright (Music, vocals - Bothell, WA)
and Gordon Holmes (Lyrics- Elko, BC) met in the hotel pool, a musical journey began. Along
with Rick Howard (drummer, engineer- Pacifica, CA) some fantastic new music has been
created by this American/Canadian collaboration.
Grandma’s Box Of Memories tells the story of life filled with special moments shared with
loved ones and of course sadness. In the end all we are left with is a box of belongings,
sentimental mementos of someone’s entire existence.
Gordon wrote this song about 6 months before his Grandma passed away. His Grandma
played a big part in his life and they shared a special bond of friendship. He told her about
the song and hoped that she would be able to hear the finished recording someday, but
that never happened. Gordon says his Grandma would have been honored and proud of
this musical tribute. I could relate to the lyrics as my own Grandma had lived in an
institution and had alzheimer’s disease before she passed away. They were both great
ladies deserving to be remembered in song. I think anyone who has ever lost someone
they loved and has had to go through a lifetime worth of belongings will be able to relate
to this song.

to play guitar, bass and trombone. He sings with heartfelt emotion emphasized in every
