L.A. MUSIC PRODUCER MARK NEEDHAM
FOR THEIR UPCOMING DEBUT ALBUM “WITHIN REACH”
In just under a year, Theory Of Flight (theoryofflightmusic.com) front man Beau Hodges, lead guitarist Vince Casas, bassist Joey McMahon, drummer Tyler Williams, rhythm guitarist Stephen Goodrum, and keyboardist John Colombo have created quite the buzz in the Vegas music scene. Theory Of Flight ’s live performances at hip venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel, Diablo’s Cantina and Jillian’s have helped gain the band’s notable fan base. Tracks from the guys’ 2008 EP A Brilliant Display landed on the airwaves of alternative radio stations Area 108 FM, KOMP 92.3 and X107.5 FM.
With the success of the radio airplay combined with the ever-growing fan base, it was time to hit the ground running to create their highly anticipated full length album, Within Reach, due out in the Fall of 2009. To take Theory of Flight to the next level, the band figured they would need to knock the ball right out of the park! Next to bat you ask? In comes talented L.A. music producer and engineer Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, The Killers, Cake, Chris Isaak and My Chemical Romance).
“Working with a legendary figure like Mark presents a huge opportunity for us,” says Goodrum. “We had wanted to work with him and were so honored when he agreed to do the project. We chose the name Theory of Flight to embody the idea that we want our music to be an inspiration to people, to encourage them to never give up. And now Mark is a great part of that story we’re able to tell.”
The fans of the EP A Brilliant Display need not to worry! Theory Of Flight and Mr. Neeham have got you covered as the debut Within Reach will feature five of the EP’s tracks that Needham is perfecting, along with mixing of seven new songs that will be featured on the new album. The initial arranging and producing will be done by Casas and Colombo of Theory Of Flight.
Theory Of Flight recently came to L.A. to meet with Needham at his Los Feliz studio to discuss the project and put their creativity to work.
