Cincinnati OH's The Flight Station has found an incredible amount of success as an independent artist thus far." Their song "California" was played on MTV's "The Real World," they were the featured artist on purvolume.com, they've been asked by major companies including MTV for the rights to license their music, and the list goes on and on. Even with all of that on their resume, they still want more. With their latest release, "Escaping Ourselves," they will most likely gain more attention then they expect. This EP is 6 songs that will perfectly place The Flight Station into the CD players of the thousands that flock to Warped Tour every summer. They embrace the modern rock sound that has become the norm amongst that scene while maintaining their signature sound and bringing it one step further. The crisp vocals capture every lyric and hit every note spot on, while the guitars seem to know the exact right moments to drive home the lyric and when to accompany them without overpowering, and the rhythm section will keep you moving throughout the majority of this EP. If you are anything like me then you can remember just a few years ago, prior to the bands with all of that screaming non-sense, when the bands gaining the underground attention were the likes of Something Corporate, Starting Line, etc… The Flight Station is a band that follows along that line in that they bring something clean and solid to the table. I totally suspect that this EP is going to be the start of bringing these guys to the mainstream and my only problem with it is that I want to hear more because I can't seem to get enough. - Guestlist Magazine


“Escaping Ourselves, the band’s new album, is The Flight Station’s golden ticket!”

Cin Weekly - Cin Weekly


“Theses guys are the future. You know it not only by listening to their music, but in talking to them as well. They are so positive. Their incredible sense of pop rock sticks to your eardrums and doesn’t let go until you feel as though you may wear their songs out. These guys are destined for big, big things that will be coming at them very soon.”

-Kevin Michael of 94.9 The Sound Cincinnati rock station - Kevin Micheal of 94.9 The Sound


"The thing about TFS that is so appealing is the great sound that they produce. They back up that sound with a good look that is appropriate for that sound. Sounding great isn't enough in music. I feel that have the chops to make a real name for themselves."

–Matty K from Madaille College Radio in Buffalo, NY - Matty K from Madaille College Radio


"They're doing more than just knocking on the door; they're slamming it with their feet, trying to barge their way into a successful career."

Bio

Just outside Cincinnati, in a cramped rehearsal space, there lies a not so well kept secret anymore. The walls thump, the windows rattle, and four young men pour themselves out onto the floor to ensure when they take the stage their fans are getting nothing less than the best performance. Borrowing their name from an extinct airport store, The Flight Station are hard at work writing, rehearsing, touring, and repeating the process.

Meeting as childhood friends, Corey Moore (vocals/guitar) and Corey Powell (drums) clicked almost immediately. Their affection for sports quickly transformed to a passion for music once Moore was introduced to the guitar by his father. Taking naturally to it, he soon began to write and needed more than just himself to find an outlet for this newfound talent. So he sat Powell behind a drum set and started rehearsing nearly everyday. A mere two weeks after playing together they played their first show at the age of just 15 for a crowd of over 500 people. One person in particular was blown away. After seeing their performance, Alex Wheatley (guitar/vocals) was hooked on the idea of joining the Coreys in their musical endeavour and soon after did just that. Jumping around genres for a while the guys finally found their sound when the song “California” was written by Corey Moore at the age of just 16. But songs like this took a backseat until the band was ready to showcase their metamorphosis to the world.

After recruiting Josh Roaden (bass) the band was finally ready to put out their first professional release in July of 2006 with the Falling Star EP. Working with highly acclaimed producer Dwight Baker, who has worked with the likes of Kelly Clarkson, they were able to finally mold their music into a six song bombshell that rocked their local scene. Shows became huge, their demand grew, and they soon found themselves on the road in support of the album. And that’s been the focus ever since. Writing music, touring, and gaining new fans every way they can.

After a very successful 2009 filled with placements on MTV shows like "The Real World", several DirecTV spots like on the "Dan Patrick Show", and a nod by Alternative Press Magazine as one of the top ten unsigned bands of the year, its easy to ask how will The Flight Station top themselves in 2010? How about by releasing two albums, touring more frantically than ever, and hitting every major radio station in the U.S.?

With the new year comes this Cincinnati quartet's most ambitious efforts as not only musicians, but as a band as a whole. With the first of two releases anticipated for 2010 they've joined forces with producer Jim Wirt who has produced the likes of Incubus, Hoobastank, Jack's Mannequin, Something Corporate, LIVE, and the Rocket Summer. "We're calling it a special project for our longest standing fans," Alex Wheatley explains. "We've given CPR to five tunes that people might be familiar with, but now they'll have in their head for a whole new tasty reason," he emphatically states. Reclaiming five tunes previously written, The Flight Station has taken a new twist and revamped some fan faves to hold them off until later in the year when the release of an entirely new album will be unleashed nationwide!

With four years as a band, two releases, and two to come this year, it'll be no surprise when 2010 becomes The Flight Station's breakout year!
