Carolina Story has released “Hold Of Me,” an inspirational, autobiographical new track about finding strength in one another while weathering life’s biggest storms. The song is featured on their upcoming new sophomore album, Dandelion, which is due out Sept. 4 on Black River Americana.
“‘Hold of Me’ is an autobiographical song about our family and chasing down a dream,” explain Carolina Story’s Ben and Emily Roberts. “It’s about holding onto and leaning on one another to keep going one day at a time in the face of wanting to give up and give in. The overall realization and truth of the matter is that the only way to keep the pieces of ourselves intact is to do it together.”
Recorded with producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Paul Moak (Joy Williams, Ashley Monroe), Dandelion is infused with Carolina Story’s organic, homespun craftsmanship and features a captivating collection of raw, to-the-heart storytelling and a lush instrumental blend of folk intimacy, country grit and alt-rock muscle. The project offers a reflective look at moments of loneliness, depression and economic hardship. “There’s just something about the dandelion that spoke to us,” said Ben. “It’s this humble, unassuming plant that’s so tough it can grow through cracks in concrete. It’s an underdog, just like us.”
