‘Holding On’ – the new single from The Firebird Smith Blues Band. Taken from the forthcoming album ‘No Turning Back’, the sound of modern contemporary blues.
‘Holding On’ is a story of triumph over adversity, based on the traditional blues notion of ‘without bad luck you’d have no luck at all’. The character in the story is born into a poor background, and despite every effort to achieve a better life, never seems to get a break. In the end, the emotional well runs dry, and all that is left is fiercely ‘Holding On’. . .
