From the Promoter
Catherine Allan and Andrew O’Brien know a lot about what it takes to make a good partnership. Their 2015 debut album, The Bliss, was nominated for a JUNO Award, garnered two #1 singles on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20, won the 2016 Rising Star at the East Coast Music Awards, the 2015 Vocal Group of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, and four 2015 Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards.
Over the last five years they have played over 300 shows together and have even garnered the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when he singled out a track from their 2016 Christmas EP, All Will Be Well, as one of his favourite listens for the holidays.
Hold Fast is rich with songs about the trials and tribulations that one may face. The title track, for example, creates a mantra of overcoming insecurities that hold us back. The album also celebrates friendship and partnership. The song “Steady As She Goes” is dedicated to all those affected by the Fort McMurray wildfire of 2016, especially the first responders. Inspired by a true story, it speaks to how one person relies on another in the face of loss and insurmountable challenge.
