Plato once said,
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
But in our appreciation of this art, we somehow falls short of giving credit to the creator. Had it not been for Yiruma, we would not be having eternal melodies like “River Flows in You”.
Within each song, resides the soul of artist who puts forth a narrative in front of us that just don’t tell her story but also resonates with ours. In her story, then, lies transcendental feature of art.
Fuzzable through its “Artist Spotlight” series aims to bring forth such talented artists who through their musical narratives hook the listeners. Be it Drew Erwin or Titus Makin, we have showcased some of the aesthetically conscious musicians and today, we add yet another phenomenal artist to the list. Today, we are featuring Francois Klark in our series.
Francois Klark, a Toronto based Artist
Francois Klark is a Toronto based singer/songwriter and producer. He graduated from the Humber College music program in Toronto and has since been on performance tours across the United Kingdom, Canada, South Africa, Spain and the United States.
Klark is a Universal Music Award Winner and has collected a number of other awards including a John Lennon Songwriting award, Oscar Peterson Award, and others.
He has covered some of the best artists including Michael Jackson and Drake which has helped him showcase his vocal prowess to his audience.
Klark’s sound is liberating. As he lay emphasis on each word and syllable of a song while performing, one can feel his energy being transitioned to the listener.
A Narrative of a “Spaceman”
Today, the singer has released the lyric video as well as the live version for his new single “Spaceman”.
Spaceman is not just a song. It’s a narrative of desire of a lover and an expression of his yearning for his beloved. The lyrics make lover’s desperation quite evident:
To the corners of the universe
I will go to look for you
Where the starts turn cold
And sun burns bold
I will go until I find you
One can see the use of hyperbolic language in the lyrics and the usage seems deliberate. If we listen to the song carefully, we can easily conclude that vernacular expressions would not have done justice to the feelings Klark is trying to depict in his song.
The tune of the song complements Klark’s voice really well and the resulting combination is pleasing to the ears. Bsides and Badlands gave positive response to the track and said,
..gutsy resilience and musical greatness….
a fantastical Coldplay-meets-John Legend expedition of love.”
Intrigued enough? Give this track a listen below:
Speaking of the creative process behind the song, Klark explains,
Some people believe that there is only one perfect person for you. Others believe that a person could fall in love with anyone and then that person becomes the perfect person for you. I find this idea very intriguing. So, like I do with most things that are on my mind, I took this idea to the piano and started developing a narrative around it.
If you are going on a long drive today, this song should definitely be on your playlist.
