Elaine Bradley, drummer for the group Neon Trees, and other Latter-day Saint artists such as Ryan Innes, a former contestant on “The Voice,” and Brooke White, a former contestant on “American Idol,” have combined their musical genius to create a new album comprised of covers by composer Michael McLean. Some of the songs that are included on the album titled “Hold On: A Modern Tribute to the Music of Michael McLean.” are “Homeless,” “You’re Not Alone,” and “Hold on the Light will come.” Each artist, a total of 10, added their own unique twists to the 10 songs on the album, thus creating a fresh interpretation that will hopefully be more appealing to the younger generation.
In a video posted by Deseret Book on Friday, 7 August 2015, the artists talk about their experiences in putting the album together. Bradley commented, “The whole point of this thing is to introduce people who might not already be familiar with Michael McLean. I think it also is a fun thing for people who already are Michael McLean fans to get a different take on it.” The album is produced by Eric Robertson.
