Tara MacLean Shares New Single ‘Lay Here in the Dark’

Canadian singer/songwriter Tara MacLean has just shared her brand new single Lay Here in the Dark, a warm, melancholy-infused piece of folk music out now via turtlemusik. 
I am loving how rich and expressive Tara MacLean's vocals are, packed with soul and raw emotion, instantly capturing my attention from the start. The fourth single taken from her album Sparrow, Lay Here in the Dark is a track she hopes will offer solace to anyone who has experienced a struggle that requires a one day, one hour, one moment at a time approach to get through. It gives listeners some comfort that no matter how desperately isolated they may feel, they’re never alone. 
This message is beautifully delivered through her gorgeous vocals that are backed by a stripped-down production that features understated strings nicely intertwineed with delicate acoustic guitar riffs and subtle piano keys that together create an overall warm, soothing atmosphere. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, Tara MacLean said, 
I couldn’t write about the heights of forgiveness and the triumphs without writing about the depths of tragedy. I couldn’t let anything go. I had to tell the truth. A song. In a way, is proof you survived.
