Edmonton singer-songwriter Erin Kay has had an album brewing inside her for a long time. After a harrowing breakup from an abuse relationship and moving to Alberta, Erin has coded her catharsis into music. Her album is Silver and Gold, a meditation on what can be promised from others, and what can be found in yourself. It’s a beautiful and loving record filled with aspiration and hope for the future.

BeatRoute is proud to premiere the video for “Holding You Tonight,” the lead single from the record. It’s a strikingly supportive folk song about getting another through hard times.

A warm and caring person herself, and the pilot of a support initiative for woman struggling with abuse and the ripples thereof called ‘I am Enough,’ the song carries several levels of truth, a warm hug of a song. Recorded live at Electric Treehouse in Edmonton and surrounded by a group of soft backup singers and players, the video is a stark performance of the song, featuring a cameo by Kay’s daughter.

Silver and Gold is available March 8th . She performs February 24 at the Northern Lights Folk Club (Edmonton), March 8 and 10 at The Aviary (Edmonton), March 17 at the Good Earth Café (Canmore) and April 6 at the New Moon Folk Club (Edmonton).
