We all want to just get away sometimes. Go far away. Amidst the stresses of the world, Katie Fry’s newest single ‘Somewhere Far Away’ allows us to do just that. Offering a hazy Americana folk-pop vibe, a catchy chorus is wrapped in vocal harmony and pedal steel to bring reminiscence of childhood lazy days and dreams of simpler times.
Known for her delicate shaping of songs that dive into themes of love, friendship, struggle and hope, Katie is a born and bred Californian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose abilities lie in creating music for those who want peace of mind. While her self-produced debut EP ‘My California’, released in September 2021, paid tribute to her childhood, Fry adds to her nostalgic catalogue in 2022 with the release of ’Somewhere Far Away’.

There is no doubt that Katie is a singer that thrives off her sheer vocal beauty, but with her immense ability to mix a range of sounds into one, will go a long way with her audience. This is a notable component of her latest release, with her melodies and vocalism greeting listeners more like a warm hug from a close family member.
At Our Sound Music, we value music that transports us; music that can remind us of times we felt alive. In her own trademark dream-pop way, Katie Fry achieves this with her sweetly sung new track ‘Somewhere Far Away’.
