ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Far Cry Fly is an Energetic Acoustic Rock act based out of Connecticut. Many of you have asked us the story behind our band name, so this is it.

Girl meets Boy, Boy meets Girl

Well, it all started on a semi-rainy Halloween night about 5 years ago, when two people (a boy and a girl) were destined to meet and fulfill an ancient prophesy. There was magic in the air. Somewhere among the crowded 1 bedroom apartment, someone screamed.

The scream has nothing to do with the story. It probably has something to do with someone digesting too much, or too little, of a foreign substance that shouldn't be consumed in small one-bedroom apartments on Halloween.

Anyway, from far across the room, snippets of a conversation came floating into view:

"Wedding"
"Jello"
"Singer"
"Scissors and Handcuffs"

What was that about singing? Aaron (The Boy) tried to force his way through some random partygoers, such as a Central Connecticut Cheerleader and some guy dressed up as the KISS bassist. Making his way to the couch, he found a girl trying to squeeze under it. The couch was not high enough for someone to squeeze under. This was not the girl he was looking for, so he continued on his quest.

Ariel (The Girl) was sitting on the couch, cuddling in the arms of some guy in a white lab coat with blacked-out teeth and mussed up hair. Aaron flopped down on the couch and said:

"Did I hear something about someone singing?"

"Umm... Yeah, that was me."

"So, tell me about it."

Two hours later, at the stroke of midnight, they exchanged phone numbers.


The Audition

Aaron went home and started doing research. He called everyone he knew that might know Ariel. He called everyone he knew that couldn't possibly know Ariel. He called people he didn't know who also didn't know Ariel. No one knew the answer to the important question, who was that one-armed masked man anyway? Maybe we'll never know.

Anyway, back to the story, Aaron called Ariel and invited her to audition with Aaron's band. She said okay and came to the basement studio on fateful Thursday night, two weeks after the initial meeting. This room was even smaller than the crowded 1-bedroom apartment. It had less people, but more musical equipment than should ever be allowed to fit into such a small space. One wall was covered with dust-covered amps of all shapes and sizes, and another had a drum set. The room was shared with a huge stack of dusty, unused gardening books whose origins were unknown. Five of us (did I mention there were five?) squeezed into this space that is no bigger than a thimble.

Aaron took his guitar and Ariel took the microphone, and the band played. Then a magical moment happened. A blinding flash of light burst forth from the song. The god of music came down from the heavens and blessed Aaron and Ariel.

"You shall take the name Skye. Spread your music throughout the land. Energize and entertain the world."

And so Aaron and Ariel became brother and sister through music.

Musical Siblings

Over the next six months, they lost a drummer to another band, the lead guitarist to a girl who lived far away, and the bass player just wandered out west one day on the sunny side of the street, never to be seen again. Yet still Aaron and Ariel pressed on. Aaron with his guitar, and Ariel had her tambourine. Aaron started playing with effects and developed a wicked awesome acoustic guitar distortion. Then Ariel added some bongos. And a couple of congas. Then a cymbal on a stick so she could hit it with her hand.

A year later they finally started to get good.

You should see them now. Time flies.


So, what does Far Cry Fly mean already?

Far Cry Fly is a three-word phrase that demonstrates where we want to go with our music. A FAR CRY is a long shot. Making a living at music is the longest shot of them all, and very few people ever become big stars like Brittany Spears and Michael Jackson. Many bands like The Nields and Moe grow to be huge regional successes, but never quite making it to the cover of Rolling Stones.

When you FLY, you travel great distances. To make it in the music industry, you must travel great distances. The trick is to remember that when you are landing a hang glider, you have to keep your legs running. If you keep them stiff, they will break as they hit the ground.

Far Cry Fly means that we are willing to travel great lengths to accomplish our goal of making a living off our music. With that said, we hope to see you out at a show.

Note: Far Cry Fly does not encourage the use of substances that will make you see, instead of hear, a conversation.

Ethereal

This is a very fun and catchy CD
This CD has a great sound quality. It has a balanced mix of fun, upbeat songs such as Cat's Credo and Perfect Day and as well as angsty, beat driven songs such as Pay and Fear. The guitar riff on Fear is awesome. I have it stuck in my head permanently. I enjoy the vocal effects and harmonizing as well. All around, great CD!
