About the flight station
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.
Encompassing the DIY attitude, they have already managed to secure spots on MTV’s “The Real World” and DirecTV’s “Hometown Heroes”’ and “The 101”. They were also dubbed one of the top 10 unsigned artist of 09’s by Alternative Press Magazine. With their latest release, Escaping Ourselves EP, they returned to the famed Matchbox Studios in Austin, TX to record six more infectious tunes with co-producer Ted Roberson. They packed another powerful punch of pop/rock that has also produced their first ever music video for the EP’s single “The Last Time”.
Most recently the band was back in the studio yet again with famed producer Jim Wirt who has worked the likes of Incubus, Jack's Mannequin, Hoobastank, The Rocket Summer and the list goes on! The band is working closely with Jim to put out a record that will dazzle fans with new songs and even completely redone older tunes that were hidden away for quite some time. Be on the lookout for new tunes and new tour dates from these guys soon!
