Raury ushered in a new generation of consciousness after the 2014 release of his "Indigo Child" EP. The 18-year old singer-songwriter steps into 2015 being praised as this year’s next artist to watch (BBC Music, Billboard, USA Today, Spotify & Yahoo Music). With many eyes and expectations on him, the LoveRenaissance/Columbia Records recording artist kicks off a defining year to come with his first release of 2015 titled “Fly.” Co-produced by Willie Linton, Jeff "Gitty" Gitelman, & Raury Tullis as well as violin being played by Luisa Lee. Raury takes to “Fly” to address issues that have come to a tipping point in American culture & media.
"I wrote ‘Fly’ right after hearing that Darren Wilson was not being indicted for murdering Mike Brown. I wrote it instantly that the words and music didn't even feel like mine. I knew that this track belonged to the universe.
‘Fly’ is a reset button on the revolution. ‘Fly’ is an ode to the ones who were wrongfully murdered, mourning the deaths and also looking on the bright side to help us find peace in the fact that they are in a better place, they fly in heaven now.
My best friend Malik Shakur also felt the need to express his hope for the future and the growth of Black excellence when he recorded with me in the midst of America trying to capture his Aunt Assata Shakur. He also looks to walk along with me, as we heal the world through love and high-frequency music.
Deep in my heart I know everything is going to be alright. - raury #indigoChild”
