Lenny Oka Is Ready To Hold Tight To Your Love

The Calgary artist makes tracks back to the one that got away in his latest single.

Lenny Oka has the midnight blues again in his gritty new single Hold Tight — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The latest release from the Calgary folk/roots artist is a driving, bluesy, harmonica-studded adventure through the dark and starry night, making tracks back to the one who got away:

“I used to stretch the truth so we didn’t pretend.
I used to bend the rules so I can see you again.
I wanna tell you everything, you say nothing at all.
If you write down your dreams you can have a goal.
You can have it all.
I wanna hold you tight, midnight blues
I wanna hold you tight, we got nothing to lose
Midnight dreams, midnight blues again
Midnight dreams, here we go again.”

Not surprisingly, the lyrics were inspired by a past girlfriend. And the song imparts a sexy sense of urgency, a sense of stealing away to a possibly more promising future.

The sentiment matches Oka’s decision in 2018 to become a songwriter. “I was bored playing cover songs in Calgary and decided to take the leap to become a songwriter,” he explains. “My music embodies the idea that artistic growth often comes from breaking free from self-imposed limitations.”

Oka embraces collaborations with other musicians and songwriters on this musical journey. He’s an artist and songwriter who strongly believes that breaking chains and releasing songs allows one to grow. He blends an eclectic mix of sounds and strives to create feel-good vibes that provide comfort and relief like a good cup of coffee.
