Classic rocker David Vaters offers hope in difficult times on
new single ‘FLYING’
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, Tom Hemby and Dan Cutronia
– 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.

Infusing Americana and Alt Country/Rock music with elements of roots, country, gospel & rock, Vaters has quickly defined himself as a wholly unique talent quite unlike any other act in the music industry. Despite these two recent collections of music marking Vaters’ solo debut, he’s anything but green. The veteran performer and songwriter honed his skills for many years recording on both sides of the Atlantic. Now on his own, Vaters has called upon colleagues to help his creative vision unfold.
As Jamsphere.com recently stated, “A Voice In The Wilderness Volume 1” may be the best, most influential debut Americana album produced by any independent musician in the past decade, if not longer.
Once again ‘Volume 3’ boasts an impressive line-up as Vaters last two album releases, a collaboration that had critics calling Vaters recordings “nothing if not mature, deftly crafted and powerful.” Like that album, ‘Volume 2’ will be part of Vaters’ ‘A Voice in the Wilderness’ collection of volumed records. “If this is the first two albums of his out of the starting blocks, at least in a titular sense, imagine what gems are likely to follow,” raved Dave Franklin of Los Angeles - The Plug.
