Nelson Sobral is a singer-songwriter guitarist hailing from Toronto, equally inspired by the vast, wide open spaces of the country he calls home and the labyrinthine maze of the city in which he resides. His music is as much Americana and blues as it is soul and rock ‘n’ roll, perfectly balanced with the energy and sound of each of his respective influences, uniting them all with one, singular mission: to move and energize audiences into an all-night frenzy and travel the world on the might of his song.

His gritty new single, “Hang On,” is delta blues shot up with electric rock and roll. This is the third taste of his upcoming full-length album, the follow up to 2022’s Second Arrow.

“Hang On” has soulful vocals and bluesy guitar riffs, delivering an anthem of liberation, urging listeners to break free from the past. “It’s a reflection of letting go of people and situations that no longer serve you,” Sobral remarks.
