I mean “soul” in two ways. “Soul”in the sense of the musical genre because there is a subtle modern soul feel to this track and in the sense that you can hear and feel Jesse Hale Moore’s heart and soul. There is a something so pure, honest and intimate about his voice. The gentle build, gradual adding of instrumental layers and powerful harmonies of the backup vocals make “Holding a Sign” a shining addition to his growing musical career. About the song Moore says:
“On its surface the song focuses on the aftermath of a relationship that has ended,” says Moore. “Beyond that it is an observation of the perceived loss of shelter, comfort, and control that can often accompany moments of unexpected change.”
His debut single “Every Time/Holding a Sign” is out today (November 6th) on Canvasclub.
