“Won’t Let Go of Me” is Linn Jennings on guitar, piano and vocals, and Jenna Joanis on cajon and bass. In compelling guitar and cajon beats, Linn Jennings has crafted a highly memorable album. “Won’t Let Go of Me” is one of those uncannily songs that are instantly familiar.
I wrote this song for a friend who fosters kids. She wanted to have a song that could both capture the feeling of sadness and hopefulness that comes with foster kids returning to their homes. The lyrics are about how there are some people that you’ll only cross paths with for a short time, but the memories of those people will often stay with you for much longer. — Linn Jennings
