Since soaring into the hearts of Australians on reality show The X Factor, Justin Standley is continuing to keep the country spirit alive with yet another fantastic release.
Hold On To Love contains 13 songs that range from country dance, moving ballads and beautiful vocals - the crème de la crème of the 80 tracks initially conceived for this record. Also included is a gorgeous duet with his daughter, Charlotte, as well as appearances from word class musicians and production credits going to Matt Fell.
The themes of this record stem from the overall concept of love, but from different perspectives. While there are tales of the tumultuous nature of family life such as In The Arms of the Widow Fig, there are also more up-beat, tongue-in-cheek elements such as the cheekily titled Oh No, Not Another Love Song!
After winning the APRA/TSA New Songwriter Award back in January this year, it's fair to say this album is a testament to this well-deserved accolade.
