Daniel de Boer, the accomplished Dutch bassist and singer, has embarked on a remarkable musical journey that culminates in his latest release, “Fly Away.” With a distinguished background as a freelance musician and composer for esteemed ensembles such as the Metropole Orchestra, the Celebrity Edge Theatre Ensemble and Holland Opera, de Boer’s artistic aspirations led him to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain. It is within the vibrant atmosphere of Spain that de Boer’s creative vision has come to fruition, allowing him to compose and record his own album, “Out of Shadows.” This debut offering showcases an enthralling fusion of cultures and styles that coalesce harmoniously into what can only be described as world pop.
In the heartwarming single, “Fly Away,” de Boer weaves a captivating tale of liberation and self-actualization following the dissolution of a romantic relationship. Departing from the conventional themes of heartbreak and melancholy, de Boer presents the end of a partnership as a catalyst for personal growth and a gateway to embracing one’s true potential. His eloquent lyrics and soul-stirring melodies resonate deeply with listeners who have traversed similar transformative journeys, enveloping them in an aura of hope and renewal.
The song’s genesis can be traced back to the picturesque mountains of Bulgaria, where the artist began crafting its heartfelt melodies in the summer of 2020. A year later, on the sun-kissed beaches of Valencia, de Boer found the perfect conclusion to this musical journey. Collaborating with Indian producer Shakthi Prasaad, the duo meticulously refined the arrangement, form, and atmosphere of “Fly Away.”
Accompanying the release is a visually stunning music video, brought to life through the creative vision of Director Jep Jorba and Director of Photography David Bretones. The captivating visuals transport viewers to breathtaking locations, including the Rebel Art Gallery Valencia and the vibrant streets of Cabanyal. In a mesmerizing display of artistic synergy, the works of Sandi Goodwin, Guiliana Tavolacci, Katerina Voronina, Terry Foxx and Pirate Vereke adorn the surroundings, further enriching the visual experience.
Overall, this extraordinary musical offering, “Fly Away” is an essential addition to the collections of pop purists in search of authenticity and innovation. It is a must-have record that invites you to embark on a transformative journey, embracing change and personal growth.
