Roisin O

I don't usually advertise for others on my blog, so when I do so, it is only because I want to! I don't receive any sort of compensation.

I received an email asking if I would be willing to share a preview of a new release music video because I've posted a love for similar types of music in the past.

I thought, why not? I went to the YouTube page and watched the video and listened to the music and I LOVED it! It's the kind of music that inspires my writing. The story told in the video is quite touching as well. I've found a new artist that I love!

I'm honored to have been asked to share this with my readers.

So, here it is, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! The video doesn't go public till Thursday, so this is a 'sneak preview!'

The artist is an Irish singer and songwriter named Roisin O.

Talking about Hold On, Róisín O explains:

"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 Sunday Times described Róisín O as having “a quality of tone and voice that is near pitch-perfect, at times evoking the likes of Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom and Kate Bush”.

Good luck with your new release, Roisin O!


  1. Very nice and very soothing. Thanks so much for sharing the sneak peak with us,Taylor and Róisín.

    1. You are most welcome. I hadn't heard of this artist before, but I love her voice and the story in the music video. I'm a fan!

  2. Beautiful voice. The video was moving. I felt sad but when they sat outside together, I was clapping my hands. Little moments are what keep us going.
    Thanks for sharing this Taylor and Roison O.

  3. I apologize for spelling Roisin wrong. Fingers are faster then my brain!

    1. No worries, Laura! It's a very different name and the spelling doesn't come easy!
      I LOVED the story in the video. It was so sweet. Glad you enjoyed it and I love that you were clapping when the couple sat outside together!

  4. That was nice. Her voice is gorgeous, and the video was well done. Thanks for sharing.
