Looking to Book Timeflies?
The duo Timeflies combines pop songwriting styles with the studio tricks and big sounds of electronic dance music. Debuting in the early 2010s, the pair followed their first set, The Scotch Tape, with Top 10 sophomore effort After Hours in 2014. Members Rob Resnick (producer) and Cal Shapiro (vocals) first met while playing in the Ride, a funk band that gigged around Tufts University. They formed Timeflies in 2010, and a year later self-released their debut album, The Scotch Tape (the title a reference to Shapiro’s love of drinking). On the Internet, Timeflies Tuesday soon became a regular feature of the band’s video-sharing channel, with popular charting hits all getting the unique Timeflies treatment. With subscriptions to the channel climbing at a quick rate, the Island/Def Jam label signed them and released their One Night EP in late 2012. The single “I Choose U” followed in 2013. Additional recording in their transplanted studio home of Los Angeles continued during the rest of the year.
In 2015 Timeflies album Just for Fun won Favorite Pop Album.
