Biography

Trevor Lee of The Cranes Are Flying (www.myspace.com/thecranesareflyingband) unites intelligent, carefully-crafted lyrics reminiscent of Iron & Wine, Bon Iver, or David Bazan with compelling rhythms and sophisticated electronica arrangements evocative of Thom Yorke, Animal Collective, Zero 7, The Notwist, or Bjork. Influences include Radiohead, TV On The Radio, Animal Collective, The National, Wolf Parade, DM Stith, Hayden, and Wilco, among many others. Perhaps because of the predominantly acoustic nature of these influences, The Cranes Are Flying eschews the dance music approach typical of much electronica and aims for a more organic feel, resulting in what might be considered experimental folk-rock electronica with an occasional shot of soul.

In November 2008, The Cranes Are Flying released its debut EP, “Family Friendly Radio,” for sale locally through Papa Jazz in Columbia, South Carolina. The album was digitally released on January 10, 2009. The Cranes released its second EP, “Banging My Head,” on June 30, 2009. Both albums are available for purchase from the artist’s myspace page (www.myspace.com/thecranesareflyingband) as well as various online outlets (iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster, Lala, Shockhound, Amie Street, Limewire, and IMVU).

The Cranes Are Flying’s song “Fingertips” was chosen for use in an independent art film slated for production in 2009. Trevor Lee performs live gigs throughout the Carolinas under The Cranes Are Flying moniker and is known for his intense vocal performances.
