Susie Q – Hold On

A new single and video from Limerick singer’s debut album ‘Into the Sea’ which will be out next year.

Susie Q [aka Susan Quirke] writes:

I originally wrote the song for friends of mine who were struggling in their relationship but then I realised it had a more universal theme that applies to most of us when the going gets tough…. There is so much good waiting for us if we can hold on, and reach out for support when we need it. Life can be hard but also wonderful all at once, this is the dance of our shared humanity….

Video directed by Elijah Egan.
