Barrie’s very own Alyssa Bart is thrilled to announce the release of her debut single Hold On available everywhere July 31. Alyssa hands this song over to her listeners as a gift to escape from reality and reminisce on the beautiful memories of the past.

Hold On was written during a time when the world was flipped upside down in the blink of an eye. This song will be relatable for many people as we push through these unprecedented times.

This song will hopefully bring you a moment of peace where you can reflect on the good times that we’ve all been so lucky and blessed to experience.

Hold On was brought to life during quarantine working virtually with local artists; Joshua Doerksen for the mix and master and Leandra Almeida for the cover art. This song is one for the summer, driving down the road with your hand out the window. Alyssa can’t wait for you to hear her debut single and to finally share her stories with the world.

You may know Alyssa from local projects such as Theatre by the Bay’s The Cenotaph Project, RENT and Chicago with Moving Art Centre for Performance Arts or playing downtown as an emerging artist with the Ontario Musicians Co-operative. Alyssa was also the recipient of the “Most Promising Youth” award at the 2019 Barrie Arts Awards.

Alyssa is currently studying classical voice at Western University. She continues to work on new projects and is excited to see what the upcoming year brings her!
