A powerful track
Holding On is the second release from the Irish born, Berlin based independent artist Orian. The passionate song was co-written with internationally acclaimed songwriter Erik Alcock, who has written and released with international artists such as Celine Dion and Eminem. Orian delivers a very emotional and deep performance in his song Holding On that also showcases his compelling vocals and unique melodic talents. Written during the summer of 2019, Holding On finds Orian at his rawest and most honest.
Orian spent nearly a decade performing as Joey Ryan before deciding to change to the unique name Orian in 2019. The singer and guitarist independently released his debut single Tryin’ in May 2019 and achieved support from many prestigious radio stations that were touched by his atmospheric melancholic pop songs and striking singulartiy. Watch his heavenly live performance of Tryin’ at the Famous Gold Watch in Berlin. Holding On is a strong and honest follow-up to his first release, which has to date reached over 65,000 streams on Spotify, and that’s not stopping !
