RadioACTive debut of Hold On by ERNE (feat. Tim Drisdom, CJ Drisdom, Chris Drisdom, Anise Perry-Drisdom.)

  • Terrence Drisdom is best known for his skills on the basketball court, playing professionally in the NBA G-League and most recently for a professional team in Mexico. When not on the court, Drisdom spends his time writing, producing and performing under the name ERNE. Written by ERNE along with his brother, former University of Utah basketball star and leader of the Salt Lake City Mass Choir, Tim Drisdom, the song was inspired by dramatic and trying events that affected both their lives – and encouraged them both to “hold on.”
