Discovery: Mary-Elaine Jenkins

Hold On is the title track from Mary-Elaine Jenkins latest track, with the song itself being a dark folk tale with a raw edge to it.

By Jane Howkins

Jenkins’ vocals are raw but that only adds to their strength, and there’s a real emotional feel to them. It’s mostly an acoustic track (with a beautiful chord progression we might add), but the added string section that appears unexpectedly is wonderful, and if you don’t feel something when listening to this then there must be something wrong with you!
