Hold On 03:51
VERSE 1 I laid in my bed last night Starring up to the sky The walls seem to be closing in around me Tears welled up in the corner of my eye Seems like these problems will never end I need an answer - tell me when will this end VERSE 2 I know others looking in on me Think that I have so much they see all the things that I am doing They don’t see me leaning on this crutch Hope springs eternal as long as life lasts But I need an answer - tell me when will this end CHORUS Hold on Hold on Hold on

Free 04:28
VERSE 1 Cut the strings untie the things That keep you down, bound, facing ground Lost now found Undo the knot that keeps you caught Wrought in despair, change is here So calm your fears CHORUS No more disillusions No more pain regrets No more running scared when things don’t turn out right No more sad heartbreaks No more broke heartaches No more wondering what will happen to me in the end Free I want to be free VERSE 2 I want to soar, I want to fly High in the sky no more to cry Or watch love go by One step at a time is how I’ll climb Won’t stop until I reach the top

Peace 06:01
VERSE 1 What would you do if you saw 2 children arguing? What would you do if one of them was your own? Now what would you do if they broke out into a fight? How long would it take for you to call for… Peace VERSE 2 Would if matter which child was right or which was wrong? Would it matter which child struck the first blow? Would it matter which religion each child belonged to? No it wouldn’t matter at all; you’d just want some… Peace BRIDGE Well if this is what we want for our children Why don’t we want if for ourselves? War is never the answer, so lift your voice and call for… Peace

We're all rich, yet we're all poor What's important is to find out What you're begging for...
5.
VERSE 1 I am begging at this corner I am lying here in rags But I don't need no money I want something that will last VERSE 2 I am sitting in the sunshine But all I feel is rain I wish I knew the answers So I could end this pain VERSE 3 Winter is coming But I have no where to go I hope I don't die this time around I hope I find my way back home VERSE 4 Cause they say that I cannot live out here in the streets They say this is no place for me to be They say this box is not a home They say that man cannot live alone VERSE 5 That's why my hands they are trembling Cause I'm tired and I'm scared Tonight my cup is empty It hasn't been filled in years CHORUS So put a little bit a love in my cup now Put a little bit of love today Put a little bit a of love in my cup Put a little bit of love today.

I am a warrior preparing for war I am a warrior I step through this door The enemy is ignorance, the enemy is hate I am a warrior, I’m fighting for love

Lost/Found 06:50
CHORUS I once was lost but now I’m found Was blind but now I see VERSE 1 I had been bound, my head facing down And I stayed there out of my fear I shut out the light, lost all my sight Believe the lies and your soul dies VERSE 2 Felt like a jail, set up to fail Glued to a box, couldn’t hear life knocks Place I had been, knew I couldn’t win Believe the lies and your soul dies
8.
U 04:37
CHORUS U are my sun U are my moon My universe revolves around U U are my light my day and night Clouds part when U enter the room U are the wind U are the rain Wash me make me whole again U are my life U are my life VERSE 1 This morning as I gaze at Ur sleeping face There’s so much that I want to say I want to tell U now how much U mean to me I want to tell U now U mean the world to me VERSE 2 I’d be lost and lonely without U I’d be like a ship afloat without a sail I’d do anything to spare U pain I’d give up everything to live this way
9.
I Miss U 03:38
VERSE 1 Remember how we used to touch Remember how we used to kiss Before we fell this far apart Remember your hands in mine Fingers running down my spine Before we became so self involved VERSE 2 Remember how you used to smile Every time I touched your… Remember the love in your eyes Every time your lips met mine CHORUS I miss U I miss U I miss U

Love Again 00:57
My heart’s been waiting, anticipating For you to come and love me again My heart’s been longing for some belonging For you to come and love me again Love me again.

A New Me 02:01
I open my eyes and look around at the place I am at... I analyze it I realize it is not the place for me to be I see More so I look up past the darkness, past the pain, past the hurt, past the rain Clouds that keep me over cast, threatening down pour upon my poor soul I pray this storm brewing, stewing within, wouldn't catch me unprepared. Its weird I know But I got this feeling that this ceiling I am under will protect me then I think. And in my final deduction I realize this construction of ...bad habits My ugly little rabbits that hide under Will keep me locked in a jail spelt fail forever protected from the... Rain So I get up from where I'm laying, staying, delaying, always saying…I will but never willing myself to... do and I do the impossible I stop this emotional war. All my battles are won Get up off this mental floor Reach for the door that opens to ... ME. Beautiful and alive Cause whosoever said that I was GREAT... was Right... Is Right... and will always be Right I am!!! But wait, don't put your hands together just yet. Listen... Listen to the calm It’s the way our universe applauds a new Me
12.
Someday 05:13
VERSE 1 Someday we’ll get together Someday we’ll be all right Someday we’ll stop this hatred That’s keeping us apart VERSE 2 Someday we’ll know what love is Someday we’ll lend a hand Someday we’ll know who God is Someday we’ll understand VERSE 3 Someday I’ll look into your heart Someday you’ll look in mine Just think of the happiness You and I could find VERSE 4 Someday we’ll hug our sisters Someday erase the scars Someday we’ll see our brothers Someday remove the bars Someday we know our children Love them for who they are

about

The aptly titled "Someday Peace Love & Freedom" by Nhojj, is acoustic soul music with a message. Addressing homelessness (“The Beggar’s Cup”), settling disagreements (“Peace”), ending ignorance and hate (“Fighting For Love,” “Someday”), and loss (“I Miss You”), Nhojj does it all with an island flavor and the resolve of church music. - WINDY CITY TIMES

If Wyclef is the new face of social conscience and Arrested Development its history, then Caribbean-born, NY-raised Nhojj is its voice. What a voice. It manifests itself through his throat as a honeyed, subdued and unadorned combination of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye; it manifests itself through his fingers when he writes simple plainsong that sounds like it was birthed in the cotton fields; it manifests itself in an imagination that has created a hybrid of soft southern soul, folk and jazz-reggae. His is a voice that is as familiar as an old friend, as comforting as a happy memory, as stirring as the first flush of love. His is a voice that speaks from every orifice, hear it." -
LOGO-MAGAZINE - UK's #1 Free New Music Magazine

"Someday Peace Love and Freedom" shines with a vision often missing in today's society. A sense of disintegration which seems to have incapacitated us, like freedom songs of the past left with nothing but a paucity for their artists' ideals. But alone in your car on some isolated road, you can still hear the echo of the people who once trusted these morals, and those who still do. It is Nhojj's poetic sensibilities found through his sophomore album which evoke such striking textures. Nhojj's voice resonates with the trust that as long as new generations are forthcoming, our hearts will continue to question the world's ethics and their correspondence to our natural beliefs." - THE GAUNTLET - University of Calgary, Canada

Nhojj is a one-man orchestra. He recorded, produced, and wrote everything on this record. The underbelly of the music is relatively sparse: electronic loops of percussion and accompaniment influenced by dub, soul, and reggae. The back-up is sparse for good reason, though, as it really only serves as a platform for Nhojj's choirs upon choirs of black gospel, all himself, all singing with a mastery of falsetto like that of Prince himself. The melodies are brilliant, the production is nuanced, but most of the accolades for this record are rightfully attributed to Nhojj's singing, consistently better than 700 angels. While most modern R&B singing is mindlessly acrobatic and ornate, Nhojj's delivery is based more on harmonies than on improvisational soloing. The vocals (from who knows how many takes) can swell, rise, build tension, and then can drop off to almost nothing. The man can sing. Nhojj's gospel roots that lift his record above most others. - CD REVIEWS

A voice that can hit notes that only bats can hear. It's phenomenal. And on the song "More Love" I liked that there are all different kinds of love. There is the romantic aspect but there is also the spiritual dimension. Nhojj is a Poet! - GENERATION Q - WRSU 88.7 FM & WBAI 99.5 FM

I like Nhojj's work in both his writing and performing. I believe his writing comes from an intellectual mindset - one that is not afraid to lay his vulnerability out there for all to see (& hear). I look forward to future efforts from him. - AFTER HOURS - KPFT-90.1FM - Houston, Texas

This latest release by Nhojj is so different, yet vaguely familiar, that it almost defies categorisation. Touches of soul ebb and flow through the whole album whilst occasionally that light refreshing hint of reggae diverts your attention. The words are meaningful, the music is masterful, what more need one say? - 3WBC 94.1 FM - Melbourne, Australia
