theaussieword.com catches up with New York retro pop group Fly By Midnight.
Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?
Slavo: Justin and I were introduced to each other through a production team, that we still work with to this day, called TE Music group. I had moved to NY from FL for music and was looking for a project to become a part of. Justin was working on his solo career at the time and I started to work on some of his productions. One night we decided to get together and write a little jam called “Brooklyn”. Little did we know that our first co-write would organically turn into a killer friendship/duo – Fly By Midnight. As far as what got me into music, I remember I was at a Christmas party at a young age and a friend of mine had the whole rooms attention playing a simple song on the guitar. At that moment I knew I wanted to do music.
Justin: That’s my favorite part of Fly By Midnight. Everything we do, even the way the project was created, was never forced or manufactured. Just a couple of dudes who vibe really well as writers & performers. I’ve always loved music, but starting back in theater productions in middle school I loved the idea of captivating an audience. Fast forward to me in high school, new to singing pop music, embarrassingly baggy clothes, and an awkward haircut. Posted my first video on YouTube and it’s all kind of been uphill from there. *laughs* Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Fly By Midnight
