Top Tracks: Mr Byrd – I’ll Never Let Go

Raised in Alabama, and now based in Nashville, singer/songwriter Jeremy Byrd has released his latest stirring single. ‘I’ll Never Let You Go’, taken from his upcoming debut EP Steel Cold Train out 9th June, begins with a gentle rise and fall like the ebb and flow of the tide, but soon builds into something powerful and angelic. Somehow Byrd has made a song with a profound sense of longing, that also ends up being heart-warmingly uplifting. What we have here is a folk artist with a whole lot of soul. With a rich, soothing sound, and plenty of sincerity and charm to boot, Byrd has crafted the musical equivalent of a lovely cup of tea on a cold winter’s morning; good for the soul and able to make the world seem so much more at ease.
