Singer, songwriter and music producer, Pete Kronowitt, lost his little sister to suicide. In the thick of grief, he began strumming on his guitar, writing lyrics, and processing the loss through song. Inspired by the diary entry she left open the last day she was alive, Pete wrote “The Perfect Day” in honor of his sister’s perfect day.

“And then that moment of catharsis when I lived in the moment of the song…whatever had its hold on me…I was starting to break free.” –Pete Kronowitt
