Holding On - The latest Jeff Healey archive album is out now!
<< ALL NEWS
'Holding On' is a perfect bookend to the critically acclaimed 'Heal My Soul'.
5 rare studio tracks and a concert recorded in 1999
Nobody embodies the defiant spirit of rock and blues quite like Jeff Healey. Born in Toronto on March 25th, 1966, the Canadian’s childhood was shattered by diagnosis with the rare ocular cancer retinoblastoma. Yet it never broke his stride, and through the late-’80s, ’90s and post-millennium, Jeff’s jaw-dropping guitar style and soul-drenched vocals saw him rise to multi-platinum sales, worldwide acclaim and collaborations with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, John Mayall, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, George Harrison, Mark Knopfler and Ian Gillan.
In 2016 Provogue released Heal My Soul, a ‘lost’ album comprising twelve previously unheard tracks, all rescued from the vaults, lovingly restored by the guitarist’s estate and alive with his spirit.
Now we've released Holding On, a perfect bookend to the critically acclaimed Heal My Soul and 2016 in general, which saw a continuous celebration of what would have been Jeff’s 50th birthday.
Featuring five rare Jeff Healey studio tracks that were all recorded during the same time period as ‘Heal My Soul’(‘96-’98) and a concert recorded in Oslo, Norway in 1999, a live snapshot of a brilliant performer at the top of his game, 'Holding On' is the perfect complement to Heal My Soul.
