Welcome to “Until Then: the evolution of a song”.

My name is Paul O’Rear (I’m the hairy one in the picture at left; the beautiful one is my wife Susan).

I am not a great singer, but I love to sing. I am not a great songwriter, but I have written a few songs.

One of my songs is entitled “Until Then”, and was written in memory of my daughter Ashley, who died of cancer at the age of 14. I don’t have any delusions about it being a great song, but it is a song that needs to be heard.

The purpose of this website is to chronicle the history of the song, to explain the reason behind the song, and to track its progress as I pursue my dream of having the song recorded by a professional singer.

Thanks for stopping by! I sincerely appreciate your interest in my song.
