Holding On is a free single to celebrate Christmas 2012! Featuring the magnificent Becky Roberts on vocals, it is the culmination of work on a demo that lay unfinished for months and I recently decided to finish amid the inspiration that always comes to me with laborious academic study.
The result is a warmer, more acoustic-sounding effort than most may be used to from me of late. Peppered with bright harmonies and a swung groove, it's one to wrap up to in the short winter days!
In it, I've opted to share my musings on what it means to hold on to God's promises when we don't see what we're hoping for straight away, or even after a long time and comparing that to the process fo planting a seed. I guess I'm wondering which I value more, the process or the fruit and it's a process I thought I'd share. In terms of my own personal journey, it's almost a rebuttal to "Hope Deferred" which can be found on my album, "Perspective": drjpresents.bandcamp.com/album/perspective
