Milwaukee based indie rock band, “I’m Not A Pilot”, notable for its lack of guitars is gearing up for their 2nd release, <i>Need Money For Rocket Fuel</i>. All songs are written and constructed around frontman Mark Glatzel’s soaring vocals and intricate piano work. Peter Thomas, cellist in the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, adds melodic and harmonic bursts of energy through his ‘guitar simulated’ electric cello playing. Adrian Esguerra(bass) and Steve Vorass (drums) provide the driving rhythm that fuels the entire sound of the quartet.

The music can best be described as something you’ve never heard before, encompassing a cross between Electro Pop and Rock N’ Roll mixed with Classical instruments like the cello. According to Bobby Tanzilo, Managing Editor and Music Critic for, “I’m Not A Pilot conjures both Queen and Keane, thanks to an almost baroque arrangement and vocals that recall Freddie Mercury and Tom Chaplin.”

I’m Not a Pilot has played shows in Milwaukee, Chicago, and southern Illinois and can be heard on Milwaukee radio stations. Upcoming shows and other information can be found at

    As a cellist, I think these guys are brilliant. I was going to have a masterclass with Peter Thomas, which would've been brilliant, but unfortunately it didn't work out. He's a very good cellist.
