THE FLOOR MODELS -- WORLD FAMOUS IN GREENWICH VILLAGE -- RETURN WITH "IN-FLYTE ENTERTAINMENT: A TRIBUTE TO THE BYRDS"
80s cult faves The Floor Models are pleased to call to your attention their fifth album, a salute to the Byrds. The band that made them want to make music in the first place.
Produced by band bassist (and veteran rock journalist) Steve Simels, In-Flyte Entertainment features cover versions of songs from four of the first five albums by the seminal folk-rockers. High points include re-imaginings of the obviously relevant "Chimes of Freedom" and the classic "You Ain't Going Nowhere," with special guest legendary rocker Willie Nile on lead vocals.
"The Byrds are one of the most important bands of the last 60 years," Simels said. "Who else influenced both the Beatles and the Velvet Underground? The answer is nobody. This new tribute album is, obviously, a labor of love and a dream project. We think we've done justice to the Byrds music; hopefully, when you hear it, you'll agree."
"In-Flyte Entertainment" is available for download and streaming at Spotify, iTunes, Pandora and most other digital platforms; actual CDs will be available at CD Baby and Amazon.
