Psychedelic space rock band, Flight Attendant, belongs to that unique breed of bands made in Nashville. It takes nothing less than a sonic unicorn to stand out in this town. And that’s exactly what the 5 piece band is: a fascinating ovni. “I think you could find some of our future tracks on ISS Radio in the year 2050” says frontwoman, Karalyne Winegarner of the band’s sound.
Blending heavy rock and grunge with pop hooks and light synth textures, they fearlessly bring together influences that span from Kings of Leon to Vivaldi and Lana Del Rey. And with their ecstatic live performances and hypnotic melodies, they have already established themselves as a local fans’ favorite ready for the national stage. “Nashville, TN itself has proved to be our greatest inspirational incubator. It has a certain air of influence and style that has really weeded itself into this project.” proclaims Winegarner
The 5 piece band (Karalyne Winegarner – vocals, piano, guitar, Vinny Maniscalco - lead guitar, Nikki Christie - viola, Derek Sprague - drums, and Mike Cottrell - bass) played The Basement East’s Tomato Arts Festival main stage to over 5,000 attendees and played to large or sold out crowds in venues across Nashville like The Basement, The Black Corner, The East Room, and more. Meanwhile, their previous singles, “Edge Back” and “Teeth” could be heard spinning on 102.9 The Buzz FM, and gathered over 200,000 streams.
Flight Attendant’s “Man of Chaos” video was created during quarantine by the band shooting themselves on iPhones, with the final product assembled by the band’s viola player, Nikki Christie. Pulsating with powerful, electric energy, the upcoming single “Man of Chaos” was produced by Grammy Winning Charlies Yingling at the Blueroom Studios in Nashville. It is a robust, anthemic track that propels the listener into a trance-like state and serves as a fitting teaser of what’s to come. The band is currently hard at work creating their debut album also with Charles Yingling producing. With plans for their first album to be released this year by Moraine Music Group, Flight Attendant is ready for takeoff.
