Band Alternative Rock




"Band Review"

"New to the studio, but not the music scene in Manhattan, is Nearly Flightless. Nearly Flightless is comprised of four members: Austin- Bass, Adam- Drums, Sam- Lead Guitar, and Jackson- Lead and Vocals. Ages in the band range from 16-18, and these guys have some great chemistry and talent for their age. I first saw NF at a show during Aggiefest, put on by the Manhattan Music Coalition and Sisters Of Sound Records this past summer, and I was honestly blown away by their performance. As was the rest of the crowd that held around 100 people. I could tell they were young, and didn't know if they had and music recorded. I really wanted to record with these guys, but I had to leave when their set was over so we never spoke. ...."

"Aggiefest 2012"

"Nearly Flightless is ready to serenade their audience with some down and dirty rock and an occasional love song or two. The five-part harmonies for their newest song are created by Jackson Meyer on lead vocals, piano, and guitar, Claib Harris on backup vocals and guitar, [Sam Rozell on lead guitar,] Adam Hagedorn on drums and Austin Cranston on bass. The band is made up of all high schoolers who aren’t strangers to Aggiefest or music in general. Bands like Mutemath, Band Of Horses, and Mayday Parade inspire the group. The band will be selling glow in the dark wristbands, stickers, and possibly some guitar picks as well. "

Formed by the two remaining members of local Manhattan band Conquering Your Gravity; Nearly Flightless began in April of 2012. Led by Jackson Meyer, the group's 4 members are quite young, but they are no strangers to the Manhattan music scene. Joined by Sam Rozell on guitar, Austin Cranston slappin' the bass, and Adam Hagedorn on drums, Nearly Flightless gives off a delectable fusion of Alternative Rock with some Electronic influences. After a busy Autumn playing local shows, NF released their first single on December 09, titled Tell Me What I Want To Hear. Currently Nearly Flightless is working with NueWave Recording to produce an 8 song album titled 'All Things That Are Good' by mid-March.
