Queering The Band: Marit Bergman, “Casey, Hold On.”
Eternally delightful Swedish singer Marit Bergman has become the newest entry into our Queering The Band series with her exclusive acoustic version of her song “Casey, Hold On.” The track was the official song of Stockholm Pride 2009, and its actually gives me goosebumps. Even if you weren’t kicked out of of the house as a gay teen (a sadly too-common phenomenon,) I think most of us can remember the feeling of wanting to be somewhere else where we would be accepted. The sentiment here is an important one for queer folk of all ages, which is to have patience and keep fighting to find that time or place when things will be better.
Marit recorded this acoustic version of the song exclusively for The New Gay, a fact which makes me extremely happy. Thanks, Marit! You’re the best. She was nice enough to also include an exclusive video interview where she answers a set of questions I emailed to her. Marit, for someone I’ve never met you sure are going out of your way to help me.
And seriously, Marit, I think we all can agree that you’re the cutest. Ever!
