Fly Away is the title track on Chris St John's forthcoming album Fly Away. A song that brings tears of joy through its poetic lyricism and soulful composition. A song that represents the strongest bond between Chris and his son who is about to live life on his own. Chris is remembering the precious time watching his child grow up and move towards independence. With this powerful song, we get a melodic and heartfelt voice, being the messenger of Chris's heart to his son. This heavily emotional and soothing song is powerful and consistently energetic. It builds a sentimental vibe through its composition that includes guitars, violins, tight drums and excellent bass.

The solo part shared between organ and electric guitar landing on the bridge section is fantastic. A wonderful song, completely relatable to all those parents who see their children 'Fly Away' to build their own future and achieve dreams.

About Chris St John:

"Chris St John has been on a roll these last two years, having written dozens of songs which have appeared on two separate albums.  His first album, I’m Dreaming, which was released in 2021, gained critical acclaim and commercial success.  The album had four chart-toppers on the World Indie Music Charts and the Official European Independent Music Chart, including “I Called You Rose,” which climbed all the way to No. 3.

Recently, Chris was in Nashville, working with legendary producer Stephen Wrench, as well as some of the finest session musicians in Music City, to record his upcoming album Fly Away.  During the production of the album, Chris released the song “Hey Siri,” which quickly hit No. 1 on the World Indie and Official European Independent Music charts and remained there for five weeks. “Hey Siri” has a playful, rolling African groove reminiscent of Paul Simon’s Graceland.  This clever, lively, and thought-provoking song focuses on the drawbacks of modern technology.  Stylistically, it’s an outlier of sorts, scratching only the surface of the deep and impactful artistry Chris showcases over the course of 13 tracks.  The diversity of the songs makes it very hard to fit Chris’ music into any one genre. His voice is velvety and clear on the album’s ballads, and heartfelt and rocking on the up-tempo songs.  His tenor voice has remarkable range and clarity, and his different vocal stylings on each track make it hard to believe it’s the same singer throughout the album."

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'
"Fly Away is set to soar.  The title track is a soulful, poetic, and powerful song about the birth of his son, John, and the times Chris spent with him from childhood through his recent graduation from high school.  He wrote the song as his son was preparing to head off to college. All parents whose children have left the nest can relate to Chris’ heartfelt lyrics: “I just held you I cannot believe it/You’re heading off to live on your own/A million hours, tears joy laughter/I treasured it all, the best years I’ve known…”

The song is set for release on February 25, 2022, his son’s birthday.
