After the tragic passing of Summer Serafin, their fellow band member and Michael’s sweetheart, Michael Serafin-Wells and Jason Sutherland have continued to create music to express and ease their grief, and to slowly move forward into healing.
Recently, Michael and Jason sent us a touching note about how On Being has played a part in easing their mending. We’re so glad that they have been able to find some comfort in the wisdom and joy we endeavor to capture. Now, we’re grateful to have and share Bipolar Explorer’s creative reimagining of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” The smooth, repetitive waves of sound and familiar lyrics gently lull the listener into a place of contemplation and reflection, perfect for these days of anticipation as Christmas draws closer.
“Emmanuel” is featured on Bipolar Explorer’s Christmas album, BPXmas, available to stream in its entirety on Bandcamp. Our thanks to Michael, Jason, and Summer for warming our spirits during this holiday season. We wish them peace and healing, and may their music bring the same to you.
