Celebrating the anniversary of one of my favorite albums “As I Am”!! ??? “When You Were Gone” is one of the VERY first songs recorded for As I Am, the one where I started to create the sound that the album has. We were experimenting with a lot of keyboards and sounds and styles of recording, and we were all about breaking boundaries and writing things in new ways.
