Hold On

They say that a person’s taste in music is a window into their soul, so that must apply tenfold to “soul” music. (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.) Singer Elara Black’s soulful voice reminiscent of great soul singers like Ella Fitzgerald and is performing her new show Hold On, telling the tale of a cabaret singer dealing the classic personal life vs a brilliant musical career debate, through song no less.

Hold On traces the smoky trajectory of a cabaret singer forced to look at a lifetime of decisions. Decisions such as choosing between a career and a lover. Between the dreams of a life lived on stage and nightmares of a live endured alone. Between artistic or emotional fulfilment. These stories and choices are punctuated by a stunning suite of original music.

So “hold on” to your seats as Elara Black will take you on a musical journey discovery, beauty, intrigue (with just a little pain) and ultimately redemption.

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
