"Hold On" is from the yet to be released CD "Wake Up!" Hold On is about not giving up, it's about hanging in there and not being discouraged no matter how bad your situation may be. I play all instruments, lead and background vocals, bass, guitar and a drum machine. I play many styles of music and played with a ton of bands back in the day including "Reeves Nevo & The Cinch" from the movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont Hight" the brother with the afro.
I consider my brand of music to be Funk Rock Metal mixed into a groove orientated gumbo. My musical influences come from listening to artists like Jimmy Hendrix, Santana, Sly and the Family Stone, The Who, Rush, The Police, King's X, 247 Spyz, Larry Graham, Con Funk Shun, New Birth, Patrice Rushen, Dolly Parton, Avenge White Band and Prince just to name a few. My credits in film are "Fast Times at Ridgemont High, John Saxon’s Dojo, Late Night Fox Show as Bert Wendell.
