Our release party is Friday November 22nd @ Voltaite w/ Mona Lisa Tribe, Helmsman, & Perigee Music
ABOUT THE SONG
Holding Me Close is reminiscent of the Head & the Heart or the Lumineers, a intimate yet powerful Folk-Americana song about the feeling we have for someone that keeps them close even when they are far away. Featuring Florida female folk band,The Mona Lisa Tribe, the song flows between intimate tones, passionate raw delivery, and 3-part soaring harmonies. Laid over acoustic guitar, piano, and electric guitar, it mirrors the dynamic highs and lows we travel through for love, with lyrics written and performed like love letters between two distant lovers.
Holding Me Close was written by Johan between his time living/performing in Australia and Austin, before returning to South Florida. Recorded at Sapphire Studio and mixed/produced by Ian Hunter Pattison, it was mastered by world-renowned audio engineer Steve Smart (Vance Joy, Tash Sultana, Midnight Oil) at Studio 301 Sydney, thanks to Johans unwavering love and connection to Australia.
