An electrifying anthem of hope in turbulent times

Blues-rock artist Brett Benowitz, based in LA, releases his electrifying new single, Just Hold On. Renowned for his thoughtful lyrics and enchanting melodies, Benowitz offers a track brimming with positive outlooks and deep-seated messages.

Just Hold On stands out as a compelling blues-rock anthem that highlights optimism in adversity and signals the advent of better times, a message particularly pertinent in the current divided and chaotic era. The track features a strong musical composition that draws inspiration from Jimi Hendrix, characterized by energetic guitar riffs, intense drumming, and solid basslines, all supporting Benowitz’s heartfelt vocal performance.

Benowitz shares his intentions behind the song, stating, “Iʼm trying to offer hope that it will get better, this is just a passing phase. We keep looking for all the answers, but the answer is you, it is within you, so just hold on.” The song serves as a beacon of light, offering solace amid the shadows of doubt that often cloud our thoughts, providing comfort in the midst of unease.

Originally from a quaint Georgia town, Benowitz’s sound has been likened to a fusion of The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The White Stripes, characterized by energetic, soulful, and funk-laden rock. With an impressive presence on stage, Brett refined his musical prowess in New York City’s bustling scene for eight years before relocating to Los Angeles. There, his career took a significant leap after winning a global competition hosted by Fender, positioning him as one of their spotlight recording artists. Brett has since captivated audiences with sold-out performances at renowned venues like The Viper Room, Hotel Cafe, and Molly Malone’s.

Within months, Benowitz has made a significant impact on the LA music landscape, quickly becoming one of the most compelling rock artists in the area. With a tireless dedication to his art, Brett is set on taking the Los Angeles music scene by storm, promising new material and regular live shows.
