Flying Machines Bio
From the streets of New York City to the capitals of the world, Flying Machines are young musicians with chops, passion, originality and charisma. The moment they put their first, self-produced songs up on Yahoo Music, fans responded to a vocal the Pittsburgh Examiner calls “an uncanny resemblance to Freddie Mercury”. Amplifier Magazine points out “a lead guitar that recalls Eddie Van Halen in an insanely-fast-yet-still-melodic Fender shred-fest and a rhythm section that drives and boils, moving “from ‘pop’ to ‘heavy’ in the space of a downbeat.”
Comparisons aside, what really caught fans was the freshness of songs like “On a Whim,” which beat out 5000 bands to win Converse’s “Get Out of The Garage” music contest in 2009, and became the surrounding music for USA Networks’ #1 program, Psych. It was the most-played song on Yahoo Music’s “Who’s Next” Launchcast radio station for three weeks running, and went to #2 on XM college radio.
And all that happened before Flying Machines released their self-titled debut CD on Meteor 17/EMI, produced by veteran hit-maker, music and media producer Spencer Proffer and Steve Plunkett. The CD quickly garnered unanimous raves: “Musically ambitious…instrumentally dynamic… a style that is all their own…subtle elements of every genre…impressive range… cleverly phrased and well-placed guitar work… music [that] seems to fly and soar with an edge.” Flying Machines freshness and originality earned them a “Best CD of 2009” nod from Audio Floss, a harbinger venue for unsigned bands, and a cover story on CMJ New Music Monthly.
