SayWeCanFly “The Distance That Took You Away”
SayWeCanFly is a one man acoustic act from the small town of Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. Frontman Braden Barrie devoted his teenage years to playing shows across Canada and the US, building his following and writing relatable music for his fans one song at a time. Collectively his fan base has grown into the millions through his various social networks and resulted in a rabid, almost cult-like following.
Braden has shown his listeners that no matter what struggles we face, we always have the power to make it through. SayWeCanFly’s lyrics are based around his strong belief that the world is falling away from love and emotional connection. Braden wants to re-establish that bond between people through his art. Barrie says, “At the end of the day, we are all skin & bones with a beating heart, and that in itself should be enough to create a spark of love between everyone sharing this earth”.
SayWeCanFly has been featured extensively on MTVU, MTVHits!, Alternative Press Magazine, BryanStars YouTube Channel, and is a featured performer on the ‘Acoustic Basement’ stage at the 2015 Vans Warped Tour. Braden has been touring under the name SayWeCanFly for four years now, headlining sellout dates across the UK and North America. His hard work and dedication have paid off and culminated into a new partnership with Epitaph Records in 2015. The forthcoming EP, Darling, will be released in Fall 2015. From humble DIY beginnings to quickly rising above many of his peers in the industry, SayWeCanFly represents the journey of turning a passion into a career.
