Ian Moss has debuted a new music video for his soulful ‘Hold On (To What You Got).
The song, from Moss’ recent self-titled album, is one of the tracks Ian has been performing live on his tour.
Ian wrote ‘Hold On (To What You Got)’ with Gary Nicholson and Sam Hawksley. “When a song-writing session really works it’s such a good feeling,” Ian says. “Gary Nicholson is a blues guy in Nashville with a voice that’s a cross between Peter Gabriel and Steve Winwood. I played him the guitar riff and he said, “Stop!” He then put his head down with pen and paper for 10 minutes. Then he demanded I play the riff again. Ten minutes later, he started singing the verses. We were literally dancing around the room. Gary sang the song, and I copied his phrasing and melody, note for note.”
‘Ian Moss’ is the first solo album for the Cold Chisel guitar legend since 2009 and Ian’s first album of all-original material since ‘Petrolhead’ in 1996. Ian co-wrote all of the songs on the album with the exception of a Steve Prestwich track ‘My Suffering’. ‘Ian Moss’ comes full-circle for Ian, the album was produced by Peter Walker who produced the first Cold Chisel album in 1978.
