Breakaway is a studio album by South Florida blues rock band Dark Horse Flyer. Bill Meredith for the Palm Beach Post named Breakaway one of his noteworthy "favorite local CDs."
In the 1970s, two friends, Don Mularz and Scott Lane, had a promising band called Breeze that flamed out after a grueling period of poor music business practices and mismanagement. Four decades later, the two have reenlisted in the mission of music; they call their new band Dark Horse Flyer. The band’s debut, Breakaway, represents Don and Scott’s own “against all odds” tale.
Dark Horse Flyer’s Breakaway is a 9-song album of masterfully played brawny riff rock and detached cool jazzy rock thoughtfully sequenced for a powerful peaks and valleys listening experience. Though Breakaway evokes the majesty of such icons as the Allman Brothers, Steely Dan, Eric Clapton, Little Feat, and Santana, the South Florida-based sextet is of its own modern vintage with a sonic bouquet spanning notes of classic rock, folk, soul and traditional R&B.
