People Who Can Fly Biography
People Who Could Fly is an indie pop band formed in 2013 and based in Phoenix, AZ. The group’s style draws influence from acts such as Walk the Moon, the 1975, The Killers, and Two Door Cinema Club. The group is currently recording their third EP, and plans to tour heavily in support of the release in late Summer 2017. People Who Could Fly has performed with national acts including Rick Springfield, Howard Jones, Roger Clyne, Death Cab for Cutie, & Fitz and the Tantrums. The band also provided entertainment for The Arizona Cardinals (NFL) in 2016. Their album “Neon Electric” was produced by Grammy-winner Robb Vallier (Gin Blossoms, Foo Fighters, Miranda Lambert).

Blaine Long Biography
As a singer-songwriter, Blaine Long has been on a musical journey for most of his life. Born in West Virginia and raised in Arizona, Blaine was a high school dropout who had to learn the hard way, from serving up fast food to digging ditches and odd jobs. Raised with a strict Christian upbringing and unsatisfied with the normal conventions of daily life, Blaine discovered guitar, singing, and especially songwriting. Blaine and his wife decided to adopt their daughter in 2011 and then their son in 2013. Putting family first while pursuing the craft of song-writing and performing, Blaine releases an album per year and shows no sign of stopping. Blaine brings a wide-range of performing experiences. He has played corporate events, large theaters, restaurants, coffee shops, and house concerts. He played for the U.S. Air Force in Okinawa, Japan in 2015. Blaine was featured on a compilation album, “The Project” with Nils Lofgren from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, American blues singer Francine Reed, and local Arizona legends Hans Olson, Walt Richardson, and many more. Blaine has opened for many national acts including John Hiatt, Edwin McCain, and Martin Zellar. Blaine got a ‘three chair turn’ during his Season 11 audition of The Voice. Ultimately, joining Team Blake, Blaine shared with America his passion for performing, song-writing, and connecting with his audience.Today, Blaine Long’s music is marked by warm and soulful vocals and a powerful rhythmic acoustic guitar style. You can find Blaine on most nights working on his craft in front of a live audience.
