Written from the heart, “Holding You Back” merges Elijah’s personal experiences with past relationships, exploring themes of behavioral changes, sneaking around, and the ultimate freedom of letting go. It’s a powerful and relatable “be free” anthem that acknowledges the messiness of human connections while embracing closure. Rather than dwelling on negativity, the song brings an unexpected twist by infusing a mini 80s vibe, inspired by Elijah’s love for classic films and shows like “Top Gun” and “Karate Kid.” 

To bring this vision to life, Elijah collaborated with the talented rock fusion band “Jenny Hates Techno.” Renowned guitarist John “Sketch” Ellison and bassist SirZyen Jaleek joined forces with Elijah, seamlessly blending their instrumental prowess to create a dynamic and infectious sound. With their contributions, the song effortlessly captures the essence of the 80s while maintaining its modern appeal. 

The production quality of “Holding You Back” is second to none, as it was mixed and mastered by the acclaimed duo Matthew Shell and Erik Fredriksen. With their extensive experience working with Grammy-winning artists, Shell and Fredriksen have polished the track to perfection, ensuring a captivating sonic experience for listeners.
