Hold On Magnolia
I was on the road and the final deadline for choosing and recording a song for this record was imminent! Me and the band listened to Jason in the van non-stop for 3 days. He wrote so many amazing songs and it was so hard to choose. The tour was almost over and I was sick as a dog. I kept coming back to "Hold on Magnolia", one of Jason's many road songs. With it's haunted lyrics and aching melody it seemed to fit our mood like a glove.

Thalia Zedek is a singer and guitarist. Active since the early 1980s, she has been a member of several notable alternative rock groups, including Live Skull and Uzi both of which, according to Spin magazine, "made big noise in the underground", and Come. Critic Heather Phares writes that Zedek's music can be defined by "the permanent, aching rasp in her voice, her guitar's bluesy bite, the startlingly clear-eyed lyrics about life and loss."
