Melbourne, Australia based folk-pop singer-songwriter, Karen Harding releases declarative single ‘Strong For You’ Friday 11th November 2022.
“I love that ’Strong For You’ holds layers of meaning.. The song can be translated as a declaration of love and a promise to be there with someone special, through the hard times.. to say you’ll be there through thick and thin. I have been going through a period of a lot of self-exploration.. For me, this song was born out of a desire to be there for the aspects of myself that I have previously rejected or disliked.. to accept and to carry them through difficult feelings and emotions, even when it’s not comfortable to do so. It’s a song of healing.” Karen Harding
Produced by P&M Records in Argentina, ‘Strong For You’ sets a scene of curiosity and mystery, played in a minor key, with the simplicity of the heartfelt tinkling of piano keys and then introduces a layer of fingerpicked guitar. As Karen Harding’s alluring vocals begin, you are immediately drawn into a melancholic story that leads the listener from a sense of heartbreak, to a build-up of hope and promise.
“This track was the first of a series to come, where I had the opportunity to work with the incredible family that makes up P&M Records in Argentina. We connected over Instagram and it was the beginning of a beautiful journey of discovering new sounds and new ways of creating. I am so grateful for the opportunity and look forward to sharing all that is to come” Karen Harding
