Fly By Midnight Release “The Boombox Series” EP

Fly By Midnight have been putting in the hours and 2018 is shaping up to be a HUGE year for these guys!  The guys just won Firefly’s “Big Break Artist of 2018” contest and get the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform at Firefly Festival in Delaware this May!  Wanting to revive the most classic “guilty pleasure” tracks and the biggest female driven anthems from the early 2000s,  Justin Bryte and Slavo just released a brand new mini EP to kick start the new year with some throwback vibes.

“The Boombox Series” mini EP is a small taste of Fly By Midnight’s wide musical influences.  The first song they dropped was an infectious cover of Michelle Branch’s “Everywhere” which was literally everywhere when it first came out, and still follows us!   The second track was Rihanna’s “Umbrella” which is such an iconic song that we still whisper sing it to ourselves every time it rains.

Today, FBM share the final track from their mini EP, “Complicated” by Avril Lavigne. JBryte and Slavo put their own twist on the power pop punk track with their distinct layered vocals making this a fun synthy remix that even the most secret fangirl wouldn’t be ashamed to admit they love!

Check out the fun video for their cover of “Complicated” below!

Unfortunately FarmBorough Festival has been canceled for 2016 per the FarmBorough website.

Last year the inaugural FarmBorough Festival took over Randall’s Island and brought 3 days of country music to NYC. The fest was such a success it’s coming back in 2016, and the first performers were just announced!  Headlining this year’s festival are Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean and Toby Keith, along with a rare performance from Brooks and Dunn.  Secret Fangirl faves Thomas Rhett, Kacey Musgraves & A Thousand Horses are also slated to perform over the 3-day festival in June. We had a blast at last year’s event and are so excited it’s back in NYC! The fest has 2 stages of music, plus great food and fun activities throughout the weekend.

Friday Five: FarmBorough Festival Day 2 Preview

We’ve been counting down the days since FarmBorough Festival was announced in October, but we’re finally just one week away from the big day!   Last week we took a look at what artists to catch on opening day.  Here are our must-see acts for Day 2, Saturday, June 27th when NYC goes Country!

1) Mickey Guyton – Main Stage – 3:00 PM
Mickey is one of country’s hottest young stars, and has been compared to LeAnn Rimes.  She just released her first EP to rave reviews, and is currently on tour with Brad Paisley.

2)  Brandy Clark – Main Stage – 3:50 PM
Brandy has written hits for nearly all of the big names in Nashville, including “Mama’s Broken Heart” with Kacey Musgraves.  She was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2015 Grammy Awards for her stellar solo debut.

3) Striking Matches – Next From Nashville Stage – 4:15 PM
We were first struck by Striking Matches’ talent when they opened for Hunter Hayes a couple of years ago.  We’re glad the duo is finding success after the release of their debut album earlier this year and can’t wait to see them again!

4) Charlie Worsham – Main Stage – 5:00 PM
Charlie has been working on his second album, a follow up to 2013’s “Rubberband.”  We hope to hear some of what he’s been working on at the Festival!

5) Sturgill Simpson – Next From Nashville Stage – 7 PM
Sturgill has been making the festival rounds this year, already playing at Coachella, Stagecoach, Bonnaroo and Governor’s Ball, he knows how to win over any crowd.
