Kaurna Cronin, the acclaimed folk-rock singer- songwriter, announces his highly anticipated new single, 'Hold On You & Me'.

This magnetic track wades into the intricate dynamics of relationships. It charts the universal human pursuit for illumination amidst our shadows. 'Hold On You & Me' is a poignant exploration of the light and shade inherent in our connections with others.

Kaurna Cronin's music, and the story it tells, is the product of a decade of dedicated touring in Australia and Europe.

Rooted in folk-rock, Cronin builds arrangements which complement the poetry of his lyrics.

The song envelopes the listener in a world where darkness and light collide.

'Hold On You & Me' showcases Cronin's exceptional songwriting as he charts the nuances of intimacy. His introspective lyrics shine a light on the shadows we carry within ourselves and shows how those shadows are cast on those we love. It is a powerful reminder that amidst the shade and complexity, we all yearn for the illumination of understanding and connection.

Sharing his inspiration for 'Hold On You & Me', Cronin says, "The song began with curiosity about nature of relationships. I wanted to explore how multifaceted they can be through a spectrum of light and shade. We all carry our shadows, our flaws and our vulnerabilities. But for all this darkness, there is an innate desire to create light and connection. This song is a look into that spectrum and our attachment to it."

'Hold On You & Me' is a captivating introduction to Kaurna Cronin's upcoming album, Make Light.
