Song Of The Day: "Fly Away" by Jack Woodward

Hey guys!

Music submissions are funny things.
Sometimes they stress me out soo much, simply because it's rather impossible to feature ALL of the artists who submit their tracks on HITS.
Yet, I absolutely love them.

Whenever somebody sends me their music, I think of it as an honour. These people choose to work with HITS and I think that's pretty great.
It's especially lovely when friends recommend house in the sand to their friends.
(Big shout out to Liam in this case!)

Today I'm happy to share a 'Song of the Day' with you!
It's "Fly Away" by Jack Woodward.

Jack Woodward is a singer/songwriter from the North-West of England.
His music is mainly Acoustic but ties in neat Pop and Rock elements.

Influenced by The Killers, Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer and many more, it's no surprise that Jack crafts his songs with a lot of honesty and thought.

The musician's previous singles "Honey" and "Someone Else's Life" have gotten him multiple plays on BBC Introducing Lancashire Radio, as well as on various other stations.

Jack has played many gigs and also supported artists such as Rae Morris, Karima Francis and our good friend Liam McClair.

His new single "Fly Away" is also the title track of Jack's upcoming debut EP, which will be released in November.

"Fly Away" greets you with delicate and softly picked acoustic guitar intro. Jack's voice soon accompanies the instrumental and becomes the leading element of the song.

With a lot of charme and warmth in his voice, Jack creates a very intimate and honest atmosphere.
The calmingly beautiful guitar parts are joined by steady percussions and soothing backing vocals.

Just before bursting into a multi-layered chorus, the song strips down to just single guitar strums and vocals.

To sum it up in a few words? This song is great. It's touching, it's well arranged and it's what we need to hear every now and then.
