Tyrone Wells’s Hold On

Tyrone Wells Hold On (Universal Republic; February

photo3.jpgWith a soulful voice and rock, pop and
funk infused rhythms, Tyrone Wells takes his
fourth album on tour this March. Wells has come a long way from his
initial performances as a college student in Fullerton, CA, playing
weekly gigs at a local coffee shop. As word spread and his talent
improved, Wells began performing at other locations in Hollywood,
and sold three independent albums “out of the trunk of my car”
before connecting with Universal Republic and producing his first
studio album February 2007 titled Hold On.

As his first full band album, there is ample opportunity for
Wells to incorporate more rock into his sound. Songs like his
single “What Are We Fighting For?” deliver a personal and
connecting aspect to issues that affect today’s generation amidst
the collection of love songs that make up the majority of the rest
of the album. His lyrics are personal but occasionally have
difficulty matching the instrumentation, particularly during quiet
ballads. However, he continues to grow vocally and musically, with
a few peak songs including rock filled “She’s Leaving”, vocally
talented “Dream Like New York” and love songs “Falling” and “Hold
On”. Give this upcoming musician a try on March 8th at SoHo. Tour
information can be found here.
