Ian Gomm is a British musician, who didn’t get the accolades I think he deserved. Maybe it was just the wrong time for the music he was making. He did have some critical success, and he wrote a couple of songs that you know, such as “Cruel To Be Kind.” I’m not sure if you’ve heard much of his music or not. He opened a recording studio at one point, and that seems to be his principle claim-to-fame, at least in some quarters.
This song is “Hold On” by Ian Gomm from 1979 album Gomm With The Wind.
