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.

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!
