A tragedy that breaks one’s heart. Ben Kweller, a singer and composer, said that his son Dorian Zev had passed away at the age of 16.

“There is no way that I can be typing this yet I am…. I don’t know how this is even possible. Our son, Dorian Zev Kweller, was slain last night. Even though he was just 16 years old, he was already a great legend. The most compassionate spirit, and a friend to everyone. If you knew him, you would understand,” the singer of “Falling,” who is now 41 years old, wrote on Instagram on February 28 with a photo of the young man who had passed away. According to a number of news sources, the musician’s wife, Liz Kweller, stated in a separate post on social media that her husband, Dorian Zev, had been killed in a car accident.

Ben went on to praise his late son’s commitment to music-making

“Every day, Dorian Zev would write new songs and record them. A genuine poet from the moment he first opened his mouth. Even though just a handful of his recordings were made public, he was making progress and was enthusiastic about his quest. He was making so many preparations!!! SXSW, which is an annual arts conference and festival held in Austin, Texas, was the venue for his maiden performance, which was to take place in two weeks. My final conversation with him was by text, and it was about the merchandise he wanted to design.

The distraught father continued by saying that he and the rest of his family were “in total shock” as a result of the loss.

“My little kid was standing at the starting line with a whole lot of life in front of him… I really don’t understand why things of this nature keep happening,” he wrote.
