Multi-talented singer/songwriter/producer Colonel Red is a veteran performer and has a solid reputation in the UK scene. He started as the lead singer of the group Pride n’ Politix before going solo and from there he started working and writing songs for legends like Teddy Pendergrass, Amp Fiddler, Maurice White, Tony Allen and others to being one of the UK’s top singer/songwriters.  Australian producer Inkswel is also a veteran producer and has numerous projects on labels like BBE, Atjazz, Sonar Kollektiv, and Warner Music and has worked with names like Talib Kweli, Lee Scratch Perry, Amp Fiddler and more. Inkswel also steers the ship of independent soul label Inner Tribe Records, which has released groundbreaking soul music from the likes of Mitsu The Beats, Kid Sublime, Rela & Beka, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jus, Edseven, Kaidi Tatham and Jsoul.

Now the duo has come together for this brilliant effort titled “Hold On 2 It” which serves as their sophomore collaborative single. The record is as silky as they come and it’s ripe with lush and warm textures with soft drum grooves all underpinned by Colonel Red’s commanding and melodic vocal runs.

The visual is made up of performance shots of Colonel Red doing his thing in different spots. It’s straightforward and the use of minimal visual effects sure makes it organic as well.

“Hold On 2 It” is the second single to be released from the upcoming LP ‘Holders Of The Sun Vol.1’ (out September 30th) by Inkswel & Colonel Red.
