ADRIAN, Mich – Adrian College announced Timeflies and Walk Off The Earth will take to the stage on Saturday, March 22, 2014. Tickets will go on sale January 21. Previous acts who have performed at the College have included Neon Trees, Little Big Town, Switchfoot, Zac Brown Band and Jake Owen.
The American musical duo, Timeflies, consists of producer Rob Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro. Together, the two producers mix an eclectic blend of genres. Their musical palette reflects undertones of pop, hip-hop and electronica while providing an indefinable experience for concertgoers.
The team exploded on the scene with the release of their debut album, The Scotch Tape, in 2011. The album, which rose to #8 on the iTunes overall chart and #2 on the iTunes Pop chart within 24 hours of its release, quickly led to critical acclaim. Shortly after, Vanity Fair dubbed Cal and Rez “musical masterminds.” Timeflies regularly posts new music to their YouTube channel in a popular video series called “Timeflies Tuesdays.” Timeflies performs frequently at colleges and venues across the US.
Walk Off The Earth, a five-piece musical phenomenon, adds an unconventional, albeit brilliant, addition to the concert. This multi-talented group launched a vibrant five-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” that went viral on YouTube, garnering well over 35 million views in under two weeks. The attention brought their collection of innovative songs and videos to the limelight, increasing the flow of media attention.
The band’s raw, honest and original songwriting has built a dedicated following of fans throughout the world. Their individual vocal styling mesh seamlessly with haunting harmonies while keying what has been reviewed as epic melodic arrangements. Their concert experience has catapulted Walk Off The Earth into the mainstream.
