Confidence and positivity is where Barrett Crake’s latest single ‘Flying’ is all about. A statement of cause and effect, the mind and body of Barrett, yearns for all of us to go forward and live the life that we’d always dreamed. And if not in physical, a mental exuberance for appreciation for the small and banal. For shifting perspectives, we can align ourselves in a more dynamic and assertive way.
Following his 1,000,000+ streams success with Mauve’s ‘Tell the Truth’, Barrett is truly ‘Flying’ in his new single. “Stay grounded or find your wings? I was desperate to overcome my fear of making mistakes”, admits LA artist Barrett Crake.
Said Barrett: “Music helped me shed this weight… ignore negative thoughts & fly!”
Through his intimate approach to songwriting, Barrett has attracted an enthusiastic fanbase that finds his music both relatable and a source of inspiration. He seeks catharsis through self-reflection in his art and each song is designed to convey that sense of healing to his fans.
In order to convey the complete story behind each track, Crake leans on his background in film to create beautiful videos, often using just an iPhone to transform each song into an expansive, multimedia art project. As he continues to release new music, the global community of hope-seekers and partygoers drawn to his music will undoubtedly grow exponentially with each new song.
Life is short. It seems like a Cliché. But it’s fact. Barrett wants to take us on new possibilities.
We think we all should take that first step.

I wrote this song when I started to have faith & feel confident in myself as an artist & songwriter. I wanted it to be a reminder of that feeling because like everything it comes & goes like a wave. Ups & downs. It feels like the perfect time for people to hear it since the world could use some light and positivity right now too. I wrote it with @thomas_j_music @graysoninthe & the incredible (as always) @instatic_ produced. Thanks @bluewingphotos for the gorgeous art & @ekstarr for the animation.
