by JOOJ, feat. Adam Litovitz, vocals/composer
Adam Litovitz (1982 to 2019) was a Canadian musician and composer, with 'JOOJ'. Adam Litovitz was born on August 17th 1982 in Toronto, Canada. The son of Allan Litovitz and the late Malca Litovitz (a poet), he himself also became a poet, as well as a story editor and a composer of music for films. In the latter field, he was probably most notable for his work on the movies "Year of the Carnivore" (for which he received a "Genie Award" nomination for 'Best Original Score' at the 31st annual awards), and "Octavio Is Dead!" - Litovitz was nominated for 'Best Original Song' at the 7th "Canadian Screen Awards" for the latter. He was a frequent creative partner of Sook-Yin Lee, with whom he collaborated on the aforementioned two movies, and with whom he also shared an 11-year romantic relationship. The duo recorded and performed as the band 'JOOJ', releasing their 10-track debut album via 'Last Gang Records' in 2015 (today's featured selection was Track 2). Adam Litovitz committed suicide in the Toronto area on June 16th 2019, though his body was not found until two days later. He was just 36.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace ✚", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
