Timeflies is a music duo consisting of 22 year-olds Cal (vocalist) and Rez (producer) that formed in October 2010. Though they got their start in Boston, Cal and Rez are originally from New York and New Jersey, respectively. Using elements of pop, hip-hop, electro, dub step, and rock, Timeflies aims to escape genre limitations, and to create music that everyone can relate to.
In late September, Timeflies released their debut album, The Scotch Tape, which proved to be a huge success. In just over 24 hours after its release, the album soared to number 8 on the iTunes top 10 chart and number 2 on the iTunes top 10 Pop chart.
Dubbed “musical masterminds” by Vanity Fair, Cal and Rez undoubtedly have a bright future in the industry.
Rez got an early start in production after building a studio in his basement to record his highchool bands, using mainly Reason, ProTools, and Ableton. Rob has studied classical and jazz piano, rock and jazz guitar, and jazz drums and has been in many bands (genres spanning ska, metal, pop punk, jazz, funk, and alternative), playing both guitar and drums. Rob spent a few years in college DJing at different Boston bars while double majoring in Music and Philosophy at Tufts University. Rob has many influences, but in regards to his Timeflies production, he cites Pretty Lights, Dr. Luke, Xaphoon Jones, and JR Rotem. Rob is a serious Green Lantern fan, and knows a good sandwich.
Cal is a singer/rapper and songwriter, who has been singing and freestyling since he was young and remembers doing freestyles at the dinner table. He graduated Tufts University majoring in Music and Entrepreneurship. Upon joining the band The Ride in his sophomore year at Tufts, Cal fell in love with the performance side of music. This blues, funk, and hip- hop band was noted for their unique style, given their ability to transcend musical genres. Cal later teamed up with The Ride’s drummer, Rob, to form Timeflies. Cal’s musical influences include Robert Johnson, Janis Joplin, Muddy Waters, and his favorite, Big L. Cal’s biggest strength and weakness, is his love for scotch.
They have also utilized an inbound marketing campaign, Timeflies Tuesday’s, which cater to their 18-24 year old target demographic. These videos are released each week on YouTube, and allow Cal and Rez to connect and interact with their fans. In addition, the two have been playing at colleges and venues across the country, both positively impacting their fan base.
