Jack Jones Re-Records Southern Sons Classic With Dami Im

Former Southern Sons frontman Jack Jones has done something he hasn’t done for a long, long time … sung a Southern Sons song.

The original Southern Sons ‘Hold Me In Your Arms’ was featured on Southern Sons self-titled debut album. The song was written by the band’s Phil Buckle. It was the third single released from the album and gave Southern Sons their second Top 10 single.

The song was nominated for ARIA Song of the Year at the 1992 ARIA Music Awards but lost to Yothu Yindi’s ‘Treaty (Filthy Lucre Mix)’.

Dami Im sang the song with Guy Sebastian at the Australia Day concert in January 2017.

The performance was so powerful Sony boss Denis Handlin commissioned the new version and spared no expense securing the original voice of the song Jack Jones (Irwin Thomas) to re-create is 1990 hit with Dami Im.

Sony Music released the new version on 7 April 2017.
