Jonathan Sparks Tackles the Man in the Mirror with His Captivating New Single “Run Away”
Singer-songwriter Jonathan Sparks is at battle in his new blues-infused rock ballad, “Run Away”. Out today on all streaming services, the compelling track tells a story of a man grappling with who he is and who he wants to be — finding himself running away from life’s expectations and seeking distraction in the frivolous things of the world. For Sparks, the journey in pursuing our life’s purpose is most certainly daunting. Engineered by Peter Barker (Fall Out Boy, Jeff Beck, Guns N’ Roses), “Run Away” is a perfect blend of emotive, explosive vocals and soulful guitar solos that resonate with listeners on a personal level.
“I came up with a dream — an image of myself at my best with all of the accomplishments I want for my life, the answer to ‘why am I here?’ But, I couldn’t face it. Instead of being proud of my life’s purpose, I was terrified. The image revealed the true contrast between the man I want to be and the boy I actually am. ‘I’m naked and alone in my shame; I’ve got no one left to blame… so I run away’.” – Jonathan Sparks
