The Indianapolis and Bloomington music communities -- and the rest of the world -- were saddened to learn of the untimely passing of musician Jason Molina, 39, who died in his home in Indianapolis Saturday, March 16. The force behind Songs: Ohia and later, Magnolia Electric Company, Molina was signed to Bloomington label Secretly Canadian and released the majority of his work on that imprint.

"Jason is the cornerstone of Secretly Canadian," said a statement released by the label. "Without him, there would be no us - - plain and simple."

Molina experienced a variety of health problems in recent years, including a years-long struggle with alcoholism that led his family to ask fans for financial support to his rehab. Memorial contributions are still being accepted.

"I have not given up because you, my friends, have not given up on me. ... Keep the lamps trimmed and burning," Molina wrote in a note on the band's site in May 2012.
