Vancouver music man rose to prominence writing scores for EA’s Need for Speed franchise before an accidental overdose took his life in November of 2016.

Some day, people tell Sia Kaskamanidis, they will be sweet tears she sheds.

For now, 2½ years since her brother Theodosius’s accidental overdose on fentanyl-laced heroin, they are still tears of pain, of hurt, of survivor’s guilt and of why-him sadness.

The album Theodosius is available online. Sia and her family suggest people donate to the Providence Crosstown Clinic at St. Paul’s Hospital. There is a Saki Kaskas Music page on Facebook where donations can be made and the album downloaded.
