Great New Video from Róisín O - Hold On


Great New Video from Róisín O - Hold On

I've had the privilege over the last couple of days to preview a video from Róisín O. It so lovely.

The video is released today and catch it if you can.  She has the most fantastic voice - the kind that raises those little hairs on you arm. Her voice resonates right through to your heart.

This is what Róisín herself has to say about the song;
"Sometimes our minds take us to dark places and it gets hard to escape. A very close friend of
mine was going through a tough time, as happens us all, and I found myself wanting, but unable,
to help make things better for him. Sometimes all you can do for someone is to be there for them and let them know that things will get better one day. This song is for him."

The song touched me deeply because over the last few months a number of different people in my life have been going through difficult times and all I have been able to do has been to witness!

The video is directed and edited by Simon Eustace, and features Aaron Heffernan (Love/Hate),
Mirjana Rendulic, Geraldine McAlinden and Colin Condon.

Róisín has recently signed a record deal with JSM in Germany, and her debut album ‘The Secret Life of Blue’ will be released in Germany, Austria & Switzerland on October 4th. Róisín is heading to Germany in October for a 17 date tour supporting Ryan Sheridan.

You can find out more about Róisín at this link www.RoisinO.com and the Hold On video should appear there shortly - Don't miss it!

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried.
