LAO's brilliant new release is likely one of the most soulful gems I've discovered this week. His warm vocal delivery is complemented by lyrics that convey profound pain for all to witness.

Born and raised in Memphis, TN, to an African American mother and a Laotian father, LAO’s music is a tapestry of diverse influences that introduces listeners to refreshing stories and narratives. In "I Can't Hold Your Heart", LAO's vocals seamlessly float over a minimal instrumental fleshed out by deep, airy, comforting keys. This puts a spotlight on his gripping vocal performance as he dives into letting go and a lost romance.
