Fly To The Moon
Originally from the Isle of Man and a one time resident of The Netherlands, Nigel Walton composes and sings fantastic jazz music. With a profound talent for poetry and singing, writing music for himself has been a natural course of life. If any more validation was needed, Nigel won various trophies and awards over his childhood for his brilliant creativity. When spotted performing at a Haarlem Jazz bar one night, professional singer Jose Koning took it upon himself to tutor and sharpen Nigel's skills. It paid off, and in no time Nigel Walton was doing his thing at premium events among well-known musicians. It was at this point when Nigel decided that it was time to go back the UK. After settling in Coventry, it was high time for Nigel to put his composing skills back into action.
Beautiful piano chords with a deep cello string element sing in harmony before Nigel starts to project his voice. Softly sung at first, the energy pushes up and out as the rhythm kicks in. A tappy drum-beat begins the dancing spirit and it's soon elevated into a rock drums sound while the chorus puffs out its chest and hollers the words. I want to fly to the moon, don't we all? Sing-a-long words tell a story, give advice, and encourage us to dream of reaching higher than we ever could. Let's dream, as we know, when we all put our minds together we can reach the furthest parts of our solar system. Excellent vocals and emotional musical composition make this a classic already, it feels like I've always known this song.
