In the Covid-19 era of social madness, media manipulation, and oppressive governmental overreach, it’s become a daily struggle for many across the globe to maintain enough focus to function and not slip into the grips of the paralysing depression induced by such isolated times.

With our shared humanity threatened by the peril of demoralised times spent trapped in lockdown, mental health issues undeniably on the rise, and no answers to the many questions we all have on the horizon – “Hold On” boldly dares to address what we’re all collectively feeling, and offers authentic solace to the soul through a mesmerising Blues/Rock vibe that echoes the emotional tone of his words.

Willing to explore the darkness in desperate pursuit of the light, Kavanagh has created a genuine tale of our times that fearlessly documents the damage the distance between us has established, driving the message home through powerfully expressive instrumentation that punctuates the urgency in his voice.


Slow down, let me gather my thoughts
The why whys, the what whats
Come 'round, we'll talk of forget-me-nots
The lows and highs, the knotted knots
Lost and found, give it all that you got
Read between the lines, Join up the Dots
Gone to ground, feels like I'm losing the plot
Turning tides, X marks the spot

Travellin' through time, lost in a dream
Forgetting your face n' all that you mean
Movin' my mind, beyond my being
Misplacing this place, everything seen

It all connects, I'm here and now
Shot out from space, Southbound
I'm trying to hold on
Hold on
