When you break it down, music should be about having a good time. New York’s alternatively minded “electro hip-pop dub-something” pair Timeflies — Rob “Rez” Resnick [producer] and Cal Shapiro [vocals].
Following indie breakout 2011’s ‘The Scotch Tape,’ their 2014 first major label offering, ‘After Hours,’ debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200, went #1 on iTunes Top Pop Albums chart, and yielded the hit “All The Way” which soared to #2 on Billboard’s Top Digital Songs chart and has earned over 35 million Spotify streams. They’ve landed high-profile syncs for films like “About Last Night” and from the MLB, NBC, Red Bull, “American Idol,” and more. Vanity Fair dubbed them “Musical Masterminds,” and the duo has hit the stage at “Good Morning America” and on “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!” Their last national headline tour saw every single date sell out. It was on that tour where they wrote the bulk of ‘Just For Fun.’
