Zach Klesinger — a folk artist based in Vancouver — released “You Should Hold Me” filmed live at the Juniper Room. His EP, I Hope It’s Calm, Then, showcases a delicately refined sound. The album has since garnered 250K+ streams on Spotify, landing in the popular Spotify-curated playlist, Folk & Friends. 

There is a distinct vulnerability in Zach Kleisinger’s music. With a voice that is deep, slow, and soaked in sorrow, the young Canadian reflects on the human condition with stories that chronicle everyday moments. His 2019 singles “You Should Hold Me” and “Lower Your Book” again touch on life’s coincidences and the uncertainties that come with them. He is no stranger to the road, having toured Canada three times and will close out the year with shows in the UK & Europe.
