“Flying Away” is an outstanding new song with a powerful vocal by NYC-based singer/songwriter @RyanGibeau

RYAN GIBEAU, “Flying Away”

For those of us who enjoy songs of loves lost and left behind, accompanied by an amazing vocal and lovely arrangement, “Flying Away” by NYC-based singer/songwriter Ryan Gibeau is your new best friend.  The song actually starts off rather plainly with its first few verses, but then Ryan’s voice shifts into this warm, melt-worthy lower octave, and he draws you in like melting butter on toast.  His voice actually reminds me a lot of Burton Cummings, particularly in The Guess Who’s 1973 hit “Glamour Boy”, and not too many singers get away with a deep mellifluous shift and make it work – think Jeff Buckley or Rufus Wainwright.  The arrangement with electric guitar and strings really kicks the record up a few more notches.  The song itself was written while flying to another city after a breakup.  You can feel both the loss of love and the need to get away echoing seamlessly through the lyrics.  “Flying Away” comes from Ryan Gibeau’s new album Quiet Fall.  It’s one of the best new songs I’ve heard in months.  I’ll be diving into the full album soon.
