Lauren Marsh Stays Close to Home for ‘Never Let You Go’ Video

Although she has Lehigh Valley ties, Lauren Marsh is a Jersey girl through-and-through. Her new music video for her song, “Never Let You Go,” reflects her appreciation for her home and the people who have shaped her life.

The video, whose song appears on Lauren’s latest album, “Veracity,” was filmed along the backroads of Titusville and Lambertville, NJ, near Marsh’s home.

“I love incorporating locations, and places in my life that really resonate with my experiences and shape who I am as a person,” Marsh told Lehigh Valley Underground. “‘Never Let You Go’ is very much about just that; never letting the people in your life go, by choosing to always be there for them. We’re all on a journey in life, and having people be there for us through that journey is what I think really gets us through the highs and lows.”

This video is the latest in big steps for Marsh, who is slated to open for Don McLean at the NYC City Winery on Sept. 1. That will be followed by a performance at New York City’s famous venue, The Bitter End, on Sept. 10, and a pre-show gig opening for Gavin DeGraw and Andy Grammar at the MAYO Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ on Oct. 18.

In case you’re thinking about making the trip to any of those shows, here’s the video for “Never Let You Go” to preview your experience:
