Pierce hit me up after I broke my neck surfing. We hadn’t met at the time, and he didn’t need to do that, but he did. A truly kind soul and a true artist. Awful awful news. Check in on your artist friends today. RIP.

Griff to you and your family, I am so so sorry. Pierce and I shared many conversations about the light, the dark, music, in an honest way. This hit me like a train, I can’t imagine what you’re going through.
