“JUST DON’T HOLD IT IN” was written and produced by Eric Roberson. “This song is a true example of freely expressing yourself without worry of judgment, expectation, assumption or ego. What I heard in my head fulfilled me. As I played the instruments I felt rewarded. I felt purpose as the song poured out of me. What it does from here is left in the hands and hearts of the listener,” mentions Eric. “As far as the music video to “JUST DON’T HOLD IT IN“, I wanted to keep it simple, in hopes that the words would be the focal point. Pure passion, principles, poetry and the nature of creativity,“ he adds.
“JUST DON’T HOLD IT IN,” is the third single to be released of a series of songs that are forthcoming. For the remainder of 2023, Eric Roberson will continue to wet the palates of fans and music lovers abroad, as he prepares to release a new song every month.
