Chris George Bancroft - Hold On (featuring Asha Jefferies)

Chris George Bancroft - Hold On (featuring Asha Jefferies)
Chris George Bancroft has always found comfort in the background with a guitar. He has been lending his chops and has been creatively contributing to various bands for many years - currently working with Asha Jefferies, The Holy Rollercoasters and Blue Chorus - while writing in solitude. Although an incredibly active and accomplished sideman, he’s broadening his horizons wider, challenging himself deeper and fittingly, has tied his full name to the first project of his own to truly identify clearly.

His debut single ‘Hold On’ nods to his influences, those who can simultaneously appeal to both a broad audience with its infectious chorus melody, but also those who appreciate and understand a good guitar hook. Recorded with old friend Ali Richardson (Zeferali, Clea, VOIID, The Cairos) in his Swan Pond Studios, the song lands strongly with sparkling guitars, a personally reflective lyrical narrative, a slightly bitter aftertaste and stunning backing vocal support from friend and collaborator Asha Jefferies.

It’s just the first glimmer of light from his debut EP set for release in 2019.

About this track...

Lyrically, 'Hold On' is about holding on to very specific detailed memories and situations and realising how that has a potentially damaging effect on how you currently do things day to day. It's guitar-centric pop/rock heavily influenced by similar acts from the 80’s eg Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bryan Adams, various great Australian indie bands from the 80’s etc
