Liner Notes: 

This is a piano instrumental improvised piece. Like so many of us I'm very concerned about what's happening all over the world and I wanted to write something to reflect this. I didn't want to write words that would get it the way by not being good enough and so I just played the piano and improvised based on what I was feeling and thinking. This is a one-take piece with all the errors that go along with that kind of recording. The 'Hold on' title is just to flag up little hope.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Sends me to a darkened smokey jazz/blues bar, laid back and enjoying the music. Perfect.

Gorgeous. Exactly the sort of piece that Tom Waits would pick to accompany him telling a wildly implausible shaggy dog story, delivered in the most gravelly voice ever heard. Trouble is, the way things are going right now I really don't want to know what the punchline's going to be.

The recording is impeccable; was this a real instrument, or MIDI / electronic?
