Noah Reid may be best known as Patrick on the hit series Schitt’s Creek, but he’s also an incredible singer & songwriter, and his new single “Hold On” is one of my favourite new tracks this month.
From Reid’s upcoming new album, Gemini, “Hold On” is dusky, with roots in country and folk, and his vocals are moving and powerful. His lyrics are also natural, and hit home, with a chorus that feels very honest.
Reid said the song was inspired by a time in his life when he was missing home, and needed to remind himself to persevere. “[I was] feeling like I was living someone else’s idea of what I should be doing and not listening to my own instincts,” Reid said.
Now I can’t wait to hear the rest of the new album. You can listen to Gemini on May 29, 2020.
