Satellite Flight Bio

Satellite Flight is a rock band band formed in Cincinnati, OH. The current lineup consists of Darwin Darling (lead vocals), Von Drell (lead guitar), Shane Hacker (multi-instrumentalist),
Addyston Ray (bass) and Calvin Kelly (drums/percussion). Satellite Flight is known for their fashion-based stage
image, high-class themes, and their high energy and interactive performances.

Upon the release of the bands first major single "For The Dreamers" the band gained immense popularity throughout the Midwest resulting in being selected as a support act for numerous high-profile artists ranging
from Falling In Reverse and Pop Evil to Silverstein and Hinder among many others. The band decided to follow up this quick
success with the release of their professional single "For The Dreamers" which was accompanied by the bands first music video.
This single showed the bands movement away from a traditional rock sound and into the dance/pop world while still
maintaining rock elements. Award-nominated producer and videographer Cam Johnson of Bangout Films directed and produced
the music video for "For The Dreamers" and the video established the band as "the regional act to contend with" (
While performing tour dates all over the midwest in support of the For The Dreamers single, the band prepared a new
EP Cross My Heart. During this recording process bassist Travis Wells was replaced by multi-instrumentalist
Shane Hacker along with bassist Addyston ray who was added as a new fifth member shortly after. They released the EP in
September 2014 in front of a sold out crowd in their hometown of Cincinnati. The lead track off the EP Live. Dance Believe. immediately
gained attention and began rotating through dance clubs throughout the nation leading to the band once again being
asked to support numerous national acts throughout the midwest.

After ending 2014 with a sold out show alongside I See Stars the band took a 3-month hiatus. During this hiatus Tillery left
the band due to personal reasons. Von Drell informed the band that he had spent the short hiatus writing new style of music and wanted
to step into the lead guitar/composer role. The band then decided collectively to move Darwin Darling into the lead vocal position.
With the drummer role now open they recruited percussionist Calvin Kelly who joined the band from the theater/broadway
industry. Satellite Flight then announced the new lineup along with the bands return to the stage alongside Miley Cyrus's
brother Trace Cyrus and his band Metro Station. The show was a major success and the band announced shortly after
that they were beginning production on a major multi-genre project consisting of new music and a series of short films.

The project is titled LIFE UNDER THE LIGHTS and is based around the bands strong belief in theatrics and living life to it's fullest. They
once again teamed up with filmmaker Cameron Johnson, Infinity Focus Media, and students from world-renowned art school CCM.
The first installment from the series (LIFE UNDER THE LIGHTS PART I) released on July 11th and featured the first single featuring
new frontman Darwin Darling titled "Under The Lights". Within 3 days the video garnered over 5,000 views.

The group was reviewed by New York City-based music journalist Kevin Sellars as "Tailor-made for the stage" as they are
known for their theatrical high-end imagery and high-powered performances, with members taking the stage in
custom designed clothing, accessories, and high-fashion brands inspiring a "dream-life" atmosphere. However the theatrics don't end
there with the band being known for doing everything from wielding confetti-cannons to throwing hundreds of roses into the crowd.
After attending a live performance Indie Authority Magazine writer 'Rock Princess' wrote, "Are you a music lover looking for the band
that will get you dancing like you have no cares in the world? Well you've just found them."
