Dear Willow shares soulful new single and video for ‘HOLD’

Dear Willow is the creative voice of Sunshine Coast based artist Em-J Dau. Since 2012 Dear Willow has transformed from poet to a solo acoustic act and embraced her sound through a full band. A testament to its creator’s talent, Dear Willow is both Em-J’s nom de plume and her persona artistica: a vessel that can change shape and direction, allowing her to truly explore her creativity.

New single HOLD is a cautionary lament documenting the artist’s experiences of frustration in feeling simultaneously stuck, and rushed forward, with the gentle undertones of a friend breaking bad news. This latest release has a tapestry of intricate layers whilst the focus still remains on Dear Willow’s original foundations. The result is soulful, melodically organic and unapologetically real.
