i can’t even really put into words what this loss means for me. I’m often asked the question, “what’s it like to be a twin?” and my response is usually, “what’s it like to NOT be a twin?”
being a twin is a very central part of my identity. it’s all I’ve known. and I’m struggling to find the words to explain what it will be like for me to live in this world without him. my best friend.
in his honor, I will be releasing his album “Latch Relay” on a limited edition vinyl. it will be the first release on Plas Teg Records ( @plas.teg ), a label that will seek to fulfill his musical destiny that was so tragically cut short.
I love you, my best friend Adam.

Elliot wrote, “This past weekend my forever best friend and ex-boyfriend passed, and I’ve been devastated. We spent almost every day and night in 2020 and 2021 together in our little home until I temporarily relocated to Oregon.
We were there for each other during the hardest year of our lives. I could and have talked about him for hours, but I’m just saying one thing right now: I and him discussed how we’d want to be remembered after we died, and he said he’d like to be remembered for his art, his music.
The second slide is a screenshot of Redwood Reverie, the track on Spotify he most liked sharing with his coworkers and friends. It’s from his 2018 album Latch Relay, and it’s one of my favorite songs of his along with The Engine and Arms Akimbo. Last week he was working on more to release. Give his music a listen, and know that the artist was loved so so so much. The link in my bio takes you to his Spotify.”
