"Farewell Flight however has given me an album that slows it all down and tells me to relax and enjoy... There is just something about an indie band, with no label, working hard to tour, and create more music that just makes an already amazing album, even more... "Sound.Color.Motion." might be the nicest [surprise] of 2008, provided by the hardworking folks in Farewell Flight. Don't believe me? Give this charming record at least one spin and see if you don’t instantly fall in love with its soothing twists and turns. Come on, I dare you." - SkyLinePress.net


"Lush arrangements, distinctly delicate guitar work, and the wounded vocals of Luke Foley elevate Lost At Sea to a near perfect status...If you ever have any kind of desire to listen to a band that just does it right, Farewell Flight will slip into your "February Morning Playlist" quite well next to the likes of Death Cab, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Elliott Smith." - AbsolutePunk.net


"[Farewell Flight is] obsessed with making music. The band’s tight musicianship—undoubtedly a result of its intense touring schedule—is evident in every track. Each member’s contribution builds on and compliments that of the others, a cohesion essential to the group’s layered complexities. Where you won’t find Christian buzz words you’ll find an honest examination of fallen human life in all its complexity. Simply put, Sound. Color. Motion. is a beautiful album." - CCM Magazine


"There are quite a few unsigned bands out there who should not be in their current unsigned status, and the least of these is Farewell Flight...[They] have crafted a fine album indeed; and paired [it] with a great live show and relentless tour schedule." - AbsolutePunk.net

Bio

Farewell Flight will easily be your new favorite band that you'll hear this year, as well as the hardest-working band you'll ever encounter. In 4 short years, they have packed in 23 national tours and over 500 shows, coastline to coastline, in true DIY fashion, bringing their brand of indie-pop to anyone who will listen, from teenagers to grizzled dive bar alcoholics and everyone in between. With tones and song structures reminiscent of Coldplay or Death Cab for Cutie, and lyrical pathways that parallel Pedro the Lion, lead singer/guitarist/pianist Luke Foley, lead guitarist Brian Campbell, bassist Robbe Reddinger, and drummer Marc Prokopchak strive to write songs soaked in honesty, which touch on themes of loneliness, hope, desperation, and ultimately–real life. In 2008 they released their debut LP "Sound. Color. Motion.", a set of songs related to the aforementioned themes, and their single “Begin Again” has been in rotation on WXPN Philadelphia, as well as other indie and college stations throughout the U.S. In September of 2009 they recorded their sophomore album, "Lonesome Traveler", in Nashville, TN with Grammy-winners Mitch Dane producing and Vance Powell mixing (whose credits include The White Stripes, Jewel, Faith Hill, and even more famous artists so huge, they wouldn't fit into this bio). Slated for an early 2010 release, they’ll in the meantime continue what has given them success and utmost happiness for the last few years–touring, writing songs, touring some more, and trying to become as rich and famous as The Jonas Brothers.
