Sometimes, we like to take a quick moment to ask artists what went into the making of one of their songs. And sometimes, the artists tell us. And sometimes (OK … all the time!) the explanations are fun to read.
Thus, behold Thomas Wynn And The Believers’ “Hold On,” from their album “The Reason.” Above these words, you can find a live performance of the song. Below these words, you can find out what went into the making of it, according to Mr. Thomas Wynn himself. Check it out:
I wrote that song after a pretty tough time in my life. Then in the pre-production of “The Reason,” my friend and the producer of that album, Tony Battaglia, and I reworked some of it, changing some lines here and there, making the whole idea more concise. I liked working that way for that album. Tony is a very seasoned producer and writer, and I am grateful to have worked with him.
And we are grateful that Wynn and his Believers are coming to town this Saturday as part of Flying Dog’s Summer Concert Series. Tickets are still on sale for the event, though on the off chance you haven’t heard it by now – and you’re looking for an alternative way to nab a pair of tickets – we are giving away two freebies on this very website. And after hearing a taste of what Thomas Wynn has to offer … well, why on earth would you want to miss out on any of this?!
