First Listen: Boney James and Eric Roberson will "Hold You"

(March 9, 2018) It’s been a full quarter-century since we first heard him, and sixteen albums into his career, longtime SoulTracks favorite, saxophonist Boney James, is still delivering the goods.

I’m fighting the good fight to be my own artist and not be pigeonholed,” says the genre-blurring James. “I always try to find something that will communicate the feeling I get when I listen to it. The feeling I get with this music is a sense of sincerity and intimacy.

For his latest album, Honestly, James recruited collaborators and musicians whose work he admires, and the result was another hit album. Boney has just issued a new single from the disc that features multiple SoulTracks Award Winner Eric Roberson. “If I Can’t Hold You” is a adult soul gem that tells the story of a man left with a broken heart after the departure of his love. Erro sounds great, and Boney has created the near perfect backdrop.

“If I Can’t Hold You” is our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below. We think you’re going to love it!
