London-based Geordie girl Carly Burns releases another song straight from the heart, raising awareness for an incredibly important subject matter.
For Carly’s fourth single, she dedicates “Now You Fly” to her friend, who sadly took his own life during the pandemic. The song speaks volumes to those people who suffer in silence.
With “Now You Fly”, Carly hopes her listeners will connect and gain strength through the music. Being a musical theatre performer as well as a singer-songwriter, Carly is no stranger to the struggles and demands artists face every day in order to maintain their careers. Whether it’s financial struggles, self-esteem, confidence, anxiety or depression, the industry can be very demanding and testing. Carly wants to use her platform to raise awareness that you are not alone.
The song is beautifully composed, emotional and powerful, forcing the listener to really get into their feelings and find strength in that. The lyric “Now You Fly” relates to the acceptance of the grief and being able to find peace knowing that the suffering is now over. It has been released on the birthday of Carly’s friend, who passed away.
Since starting her career on the stage, Carly has performed in lead roles in London and travelled the world in renowned productions. These include playing the Acid Queen in The Who’s Tommy, alongside X Factor Rockstar Giovanni Spano, and the role of Linda in the UK Tour of producer Bill Kenwright’s award-winning hit musical Blood Brothers. Carly also performed in the ITV series Walk The Line, drawing praise from Gary Barlow for singing her own song in not just her Geordie accent but also using Geordie dialect, something she used again in her summer 2022 hit, “Sweetheart”.
