"Days Go By" Duet Song Released
Eric Martsolf is best known for portraying Brady Black on the hit soap "Days of our Lives." But long before he was making TV audiences swoon, he was making music. Although acting has become his full-time job, Eric has always had a passion for music. So, he recently teamed up with longtime friend, Nashville singer/songwriter Holly Norman, to record a brand new duet penned by Norman, Days Go By.
In the late 90’s, one of Eric’s musical ventures included being a featured performer in a theater at Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s nationally recognized theme park in Pigeon Forge, TN. It was there Eric first met and worked with Holly Norman, performing together in a 50’s themed show, Let The Good Times Roll. After leaving Dollywood, Eric continued to pursue music, but his acting abilities landed him a major role on the soap opera, Passions. Currently, he plays the Brady Black character role on "Days of our Lives," for which he won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2012 for Best Supporting Actor.
The song, Days Go By, is about a couple parting ways; something Eric relates to all to well since his DAYS character Brady can’t seem to settle down with the right woman. The song really showcases the beautiful, effortless blend of Holly and Eric’s vocals. With Holly’s sweet, angelic tones and Eric’s deep, rich voice, the song is certain to capture audiences and paint a vivid picture of a love gone wrong. Holly and Eric are excited to be working together again and hope to make this the start of something special.
The song is available on iTunes and on Amazon.
