FULL STORY

Flight Attendant belongs to that breed of rock bands made in Nashville, where their sound is nothing less than a sonic unicorn. Blending sounds of grunge with power-pop hooks, viola and light synth textures, they have begun to create a hypnotic sound and energy all of their own.

 

Glide Magazine says that Lead Singer Karalyne, “Commands your attention like Freddie Mercury working the crowd in an arena.” Flight Attendant band has been compared to No Doubt and FleetwoodMac, or as TurnuptheVolume put it, “Think Warpaint having a dance with BestCoast,” - This “Nashville based eclectic-indie band….is ready for take off” Velvet Thunder [UK]

 

The group met through many shared interests, friend circles and glasses of wine. Karalyne (Lead Vocals, Keys, certified Sommelier, originally from Kansas City, Kanas) met Vinny Maniscalco (Vocals, Guitar, award-winning bartender, originally from Boston, Massachusetts) while bartending together at Nashville restaurant, 5th & Taylor, where Nikki Christie (Vocals, Viola, great at drinking wine, originally from Los Angeles, California ) joined in too. It didn’t take many nights of cocktail making and wine tasting before the band formed. With the addition of drummer, and long time drinking buddy Derek Sprague (drums, lager lover and also from Boston, Massachusetts)  the lineup was complete. Together the group has released a collection of singles including pulsating grooves like, “Man of Chaos,” which was described by numerous media outlets  as one of the best singles of 2020. 

 

Flight Attendant has played sold out shows from Nashville, Tennessee, to Austin,Texas, including SXSW 2022, Tomato Art Festival and the Nashville Film Festival - where the have entranced audiences, sold out merch and created a fitting example of whats to come.  They are now gearing up for a European Tour in the Fall to support their debut album, produced by Grammy Winning engineer and producer, Charles Yingling. With the help of  their cabin crew, Flight Attendant is quickly making a name for themselves on the global stage.
