The debut album "Hold On" is a compilation of songs that come from the heart and soul of Lori Burke. With tunes ranging from bluesy cries for help in "I'm Blue" to the cheating song "Fraction" to the lamenting "To Feel Alive", listeners are taken on a journey that starts with a struggle to get to the top in "White Tank Mountain" and ends with the inspirational "The Gift". In the middle, you'll hear throw-back-to-old-time tunes entitled "The Grange Waltz" and "Comin' Home". The psychedelic "Just a Dream" will have you reflecting on the times in life where time and space seem to be a blur. And the award-winning "Tower City" is nestled toward the end. The title track "Hold On" carries the theme throughout the album that even through all of life's ups and downs, sometimes you just need someone or something to hang on to.
"The greatest compliment I could receive about this CD is that it would be the inspiration for the listener to create something they love."
