Daria Kulesh releases single “Letting Go” – produced by Ben Walker 

Letting Go is an original song from Daria Kulesh’s upcoming debut solo album, Eternal Child. It was inspired by Canción De Las Simples Cosas performed by Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, the songs of Canadian singer/songwriter Dan McKinnon and Daria’s own story of love and loss in Nova Scotia, Canada.

It is a bittersweet, haunting track inspired by Celtic sessions in the pubs of Halifax, where Daria met her Canadian ex-sweetheart. Looking at that relationship from a distance, the song takes you on a nostalgic, yet enlightening journey. Daria’s personal experience of losing both a partner and a country she came to love may seem extreme, but don’t we all lose a whole world built from our hopes and dreams when a serious relationship comes to an abrupt end?

The track was produced by Radio BBC 2 Folk Awards nominated Ben Walker, winner of Spiral Earth Award for Best Duo with Josienne Clarke.
