NASHVILLE. TN/TORONTO, CA. – Feb 10, 2020 – David Vaters is about to release an uplifting and hopeful song that rhythmically soothes the soul. At some point in life we all lose loved ones. It’s inevitable but it’s never easy. In fact, more often than not it’s a painful experience – one that is often soothed by the hope of something better after death. That’s the sentiment that Canadian-born artist David Vaters is trying to capture on his newest single “Flying.”
After years of working with well known musicians and producers in the US, Canada and UK, such as Henri Spinetti, Dave Markee, Skip Procop, Andre Wahl and Norman Barrett – Vaters has been developing a solo career. His album and single releases over the past couple of years have gained him some notoriety with millions of streams and notable radio play in the UK, Australia and USA, and his heartfelt, honest & sometimes raw lyrics are connecting with fans all over the world.
With “Flying” which is set to drop on Feb. 20, Vaters said he wants to provide listeners a sense of hope and yes, even joy during times of life that are often the most difficult.
Uplifting (Tom Petty like) lyrics include the chorus “Everything is different now – I’m flying and looking down – It’s better than I thought it was – I’m flying with angels now”.
“A lot of people in our lives have passed away recently and I began to think about what things might be like from their perspective when they pass on and go to heaven,” Vaters said. “That’s how this song came about. I think every songwriter draws from their own experiences, and faith is an important part of my life. It’s an everyday thing. When I write songs, I tend to write about life and getting through things; and with this song, I wanted to touch on having the faith and hope to get through these kinds of situations.”
Vaters has paired his organic and transparent songwriting with the classic sound that he’s been known for over the years. His breathy, raspy voice pairs perfectly with a guitar style reminiscent of The Eagles, Tom Petty or Eric Clapton. That said, he can’t be pegged into one genre lane because his songwriting has explored many different sounds and styles. In fact, he’s currently working on a Rock/Reggae fusion that he hopes to release later this year.
Vaters’ team plan for 2020 is to release a new single on the 20th of every month, all of which will build and combine into a full album that he hopes to release on the 20th of September. He started that journey with the first single off the album called “Red Sea” which has gained a lot of traction over the past couple of months with 100’s of thousands of streams. He followed that with the second single in January called “Love You More” and will move forward with “Flying” on Feb. 20.
