For the past decade, Seyffert has made a career as a sideman for artists including Sia, Norah Jones, The Black Keys, Beck, Roger Waters, & more, while also honing his skills as a producer, working in the studio with numerous artists including Beck, Jenny Lewis, Dr. Dog, Bedouine, James Supercave and more.

Seyffert's new single, “Hold On,” is a mesmerizing, downtempo psych-folk track that deftly navigates the minutiae of modern romance and communication, while Seyffert’s beautifully whisper-crooned vocals manage to impart both heartache and adoration in equal measure.


I don’t think that I have to say you took me by surprise
I never meant to shy away when you looked deep into my eyes

Everything you said
Running through my head
Every night in bed
Every night in bed

I could not refuse
I never meant to use
You’re such a pretty view and you could be my muse
My muse
My muse

You, you know just what I am
And you, accept the boy inside the man and I keep hoping you can hold on if I can

There’s been so many times
I didn’t take my time
I never made my mind
I couldn’t make my mind

You never said a word
The thought I never heard
I am not a bird
I am not a bird

You, you know just what I am
And you, accept the boy inside the man and I keep hoping you can hold on if you got the time
You got the time?
I keep hoping you can hold on

I heard your song
It wasn’t wrong
The message is hard to beat

The way you sing
Instead of speak
It really made me think
