Upon hearing Fly Upright Kite it will become immediately obvious how this Boston-based band has gained a large and loyal following. Fly Upright Kite is a young, energetic pop/rock group that blends heartfelt compositions with well-crafted pop melodies. Their powerful choruses and inventive hooks are sure to linger in your head for days.
Fly Upright Kite formed in late 2004 and has only continued to grow. Comprised of five talented musicians, not only does Fly Upright Kite possess a certain talent for making great music, but they also have the drive and determination to make themselves heard.
After evolving into their current driving and electric sound, Fly Upright Kite began relentlessly performing at many popular venues around the New England area. Their often delicate and personal lyrics have proven to cut through the noise of any crowded rock club and make a connection with audiences of all ages.
In late April of 2006 the band released “Every Breathing Moment”, their highly anticipated, debut EP. Engineered and mixed by Kenny Lewis (Stryper, Journey), this promising collection of 5 songs has won over fans across the nation and acts as an excellent first look into the emotion and creativity that defines all of Fly Upright Kite’s work.
Having shared the stage with national touring bands (Denison Witmer, Umbrellas, Brandston of The Militia Group) and big name local acts(Medicated Kisses, Therefore I Am, The Killing Moon), Fly Upright Kite is reaching out to new fans everyday. In addition, Every Breathing Moment's radio single, "Burn Out", is a favorite among local DJs and has received frequent airplay on popular, regional radio stations WBCN and WFNX.
Armed with a well-received new EP, a dynamic, expressive live show, and the unusual use of violin in a rock group, Fly Upright Kite produces the fresh, compelling sound that makes them one of the most captivating bands on the competitive New England music scene.
