There at least five artists with the name Aviator;
1.) Aviator is an emotive, experimental and increasingly melodic post-hardcore band from Boston, MA, formed in late 2009. The band's sound evolved notably as they released a multitude of EPs, splits and singles over the years, culminating in their signing to No Sleep Records in 2014. Their debut full-length Head in the Clouds, Hands in the Dirt was released August 19, 2014 on LP, CD & digital formats, to be followed by extensive touring. Aviator currently consists of vocalist TJ Copello, guitarist Mat Morin, guitarist/vocalist Michael Russo, drummer Aviv Marotz and bassist/vocalist Mike Moschetto, who took the place of original bassist Tommy Regan in March 2011.
2.) Aviator was also a short-lived progressive/art rock band comprised of Jack Lancaster (Blodwyn Pig), Clive Bunker (Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig), John G. Perry (Caravan, Quantum Jump) and Mick Rogers (Manfred Mann's Earth Band). One look at their pedigrees was enough to understand that Aviator was something very special, yet they did not achieve the same success as with their previous efforts. The sound of Aviator is very distinctive: defined by funky drumming, synth bass, lots of attention to sonic detail (in the use of synths, effects and background noises) and rich vocal melodies. They disbanded after releasing 'Turbulence,' their second and best-known album (though the members did record a third; it later surfaced as a Jack Lancaster solo release).
3.) Aviator is also the name of a Boston-based rapper signed to Base Trip Records. In person, the rapper is a clean-cut, thoughtful individual who speaks his mind about people, politics, and the life around him (it might have something to do with his major in sociology). On stage, he raps about the same issues as a performer.
4.) Aviator (Авіатор in Ukrainian) is a Ukrainian pop band formed by Igor, Dima and Andrey.
