on leaving home

Talented. Beautiful. Sweet. These are the words I’d use to describe Kelli Cohen if I was following the advice/rules of crappy internet dating sites. I met Kelli through a friend at the now-defunct Club 770. Our paths kept crossing and we decided we should probably just man up and be pals. A passion for music, photography, and whiskey runs common through our veins, and I quickly grew to love Kelli like a little sister. This summer while bonding over movie moments and summer nights, I tapped her to make a mix for M|H. Perfectly timed for the trading in of one year for the next, On Leaving Home explores change and embraces it. While Kelli and I no longer occupy the same city, leaving our trademark trails of red lipstick and dominating karaoke with “Dog Days Are Over” and the doubled power of our voices, I sit secure in the fact that absence only makes the heart grow fonder.
