TIMEFLIES PRESS KIT
Bio We started Timeflies in 2010, and after releasing only singles, on September 19, 2011, released our debut album,The Scotch Tape. We also started Timeflies Tuesday – a series in which we are able to stay connected with you by releasing remixes, performing live covers, and freestyling over original beats. We released Under The Influence, a 6 track sample-based mixtape, in July 2012. On November 27, 2012, we released a 6 track EP, One Night, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes overall charts. We are currently working on our second all-original album to be released in Spring/Summer 2013. With another national tour planned for 2013, we’re excited for what the future holds. Cal has been singing and freestyling since high school. While majoring in music and entrepreneurship he joined a band called The Ride. This blues, funk and hip-hop band was when Cal later teamed up with The Ride’s drummer, Rez, to form Timeflies in October 2010. 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. Rez got an early start in production after building a studio in his basement for multiple high school bands. Rez works mostly in Pro Tools, Ableton, and Reason, and plays mainly drums, guitar, and piano. Rez spent a few years DJing in college, double majoring in music and philosophy. In regards to his Timeflies production, Rez cites Porter Robinson, Benny Blanco, Pretty Lights, and JR Rotem as major influences. He is also a serious Green Lantern fan.

APRIL 2nd: “I CHOOSE U” VIDEO PREMIERES ON VEVO AND MTV APRIL 22nd : “I CHOOSE U” OFFICIALLY IMPACTS AT RADIO
(April 2, 2013 – New York, NY) After a whirlwind courtship, NYC duo Timeflies, whose One Night EP topped the iTunes chart (at #1) and Billboard Digital Songs chart (#2) last year, has now been signed to Island Records, a division of Island Def Jam Music Group. Timeflies’ single, “I Choose U,” is now available at iTunes! “I Choose U” officially impacts at radio on April 22nd. It is the first single to be released from Timeflies’ upcoming new album on their newly formed label imprint, forty8fifty/Island. Timeflies, who have logged over 50 million cumulative YouTube views and more than 165,000 subscribers, shot the video for “I Choose U” on location in Los Angeles last week. Today, 24 hours prior to the music release, the video will premiere at #1 music destination VEVO and MTV as well. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
The release of “I Choose U” takes place in the afterglow of Timeflies being named an “MTV Artist To Watch” and one of MTV Buzzworthy’s “Breakthrough Artists of 2012. Timeflies, described as “musical masterminds” in Vanity Fair, followed up with an heroic premiere performance earlier this month during the closing weekend of the SXSW Music Conference’s annual “mtvU Woodie Awards Festival.” MTV’s Timeflies lovefest continued over the weekend, with SXSW VJ Correspondent pieces airing all day on MTV and mtvU. Timeflies’ Woodies festival performance ultimately went into rotation on MTV, MTV Hits, and mtvU over the final week of March. Check out Timeflies’ Woodies blog at: http://buzzworthy.mtv.com/2013/03/15/timeflieswoodies-fan-mail-interview. The Monday night after SXSW, Timeflies arrived in New York to headline MTV’s sold-out “Artist to Watch” series at the Highline Ballroom. Five days later on March 23rd, they performed on MTV’s “Spring Fix” at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. Promos begin on April 1st for“Spring Fix,” which is scheduled to air starting April 2nd on MTV “Primetime” (4-6:00 p.m., ET). “Spring Fix” will then be added into MTV Hits Rotation. “I Choose U” is by all accounts about the 23rd single release since 2010 by the Timeflies duo of Cal Shapiro (from New York) and Rob Resnick (from New Jersey). In addition to their non-stop flow of singles and videos, they have gained worldwide notoriety across the web with Timeflies Tuesday – a series in which they stay connected with their followers by releasing remixes, performing live covers, and freestyling over original beats. Cal and Rez began producing music while at college outside Boston, where they first played together in a band known as the Ride. After forming Timeflies in 2010 and releasing their first half-dozen singles, their debut album arrived in 2011, The Scotch Tape (owing to Cal’s love of scotch). A six-track sample-based mixtape titled Under The Influence followed in July 2012. Four months later came the six-track EP, One Night, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes overall charts! The EP contained the single, “Swoon,” whose video can be viewed at: http://youtu.be/M8l8AMIt5oU.

Timeflies Discuss 'One Night' EP & Unlikely Rise To Success
Last July, pop-rap duo Timeflies released a six-song mixtape, "Under The Influence," that featured covers of radio hits like Rihanna's "We Found Love" and Adele's "Someone Like You." The project made sense for a group that had earned a following covering other artists -- their techno take on Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," posted online in April, has garnered 2.2 million YouTube views -- but Timeflies has proven to be more than just a one-note Internet sensation since its release. In September, the duo headlined a show at New York's Terminal 5, and sold out the 3,000-capacity venue with ease. And on Tuesday (Nov. 27), Timeflies released "One Night," a new EP with five original songs, including a title track that has amassed 140,000 YouTube hits in six days. For Rob "Res" Resnick and Cal Shapiro, watching Timeflies' viral presence slowly translate into real-world success in less than two years has been a surreal experience. "YouTube is really where we started making moves," Shapiro tells Billboard. "Everything kept growing, and next thing we knew we were at Terminal 5."

Time Is Flying for Timeflies
The future is looking very bright for Cal and Rob “Rez” Resnick, the musical masterminds of electro-‐pop-‐hip-‐hop-‐rap group Timeflies. In the months following their first major release, with the track “All Night” in late October 2010, the duo has built a formidable following. Now with more than 10,000 Facebook fans—and 100 more joining every day—Cal and Rez, both 22, have mastered the fine art of social media, using Twitter to generate and perpetuate hype among thousands of followers, who eagerly await the release of Timeflies’ first album, The Scotch Tape, early next month. “There’s no doubt that social media has been hugely instrumental for us getting all these fans,” says Cal, the vocalist, who met Rez, the beat-‐maker instrumentalist, at a party when they were undergrads at Tufts University, near Boston. “I’ve got to say, I was a little reluctant at first to create a Twitter account, but Rob convinced me to get [my] act together. We try to respond to fans and retweet their comments and just keep our fan base buzzing—keep them involved in what we’re doing and stay involved with them.” Indeed, the Internet has been good for Timeflies, whose videos on YouTube— most of them amateur-‐hour productions featuring Cal freestyling over Rez’s remix— have together received more than one million views. Nearly 150,000 of those resulted from their catchy reinterpretation of The Little Mermaid’s “Under the Sea,” in which Cal, between sips from a can of Bud Light, soulfully strings together his flow while Rez goes to town on his new steel drum, a graduation present. The video was posted on June 7, 2011, as part of “Timeflies Tuesdays,” when they release an original musical video—a weekly routine the pair started “to give people an insight into what we’re doing,” according to Cal.

Need a Dose of Adorable-‐Hotness? Check Out This New Song From Timeflies (Man, Can They Sing!) When my best friend showed me a free styling, steel drum-‐filled cover of "Under the Sea" from the Bostonian duo Timeflies, I was hooked and found myself coming out of a Timeflies YouTube binge hours and hours later. But it wasn't just me-‐-‐when I sent the video to Caroline, gushing over the cuties and their tunes, she fell in love, and soon enough, our whole office was buzzing over them. Well, the best-‐kept secret isn't a secret anymore because their EP, One Night, is out tomorrow!

Video: Timeflies Freestyle Raps For Seventeen
Timeflies duo Cal and Rez stopped by the Seventeen offices recently and we put the guys' skills to the test! Before they came in, Seventeen editors all came up with topics that we talk about pretty much all the time here (you know, like One Direction, prom, "Call Me Maybe..."), wrote them all down, and put them in a jar. Then, we asked Cal to freestyle rap using the words right on the spot! The guys totally pulled it off, incorporating the freestyle rap into an acoustic performance of their new single, "Swoon." Um, Cal and Rez, we promise next time we won't write them on Post-It notes. Watch Video At: http://www.seventeen.com/entertainment/reviews/timefliesfreestyle-rap-video

Live From The Cosmo Fashion Closet: Timeflies
Ear candy alert: For the last few weeks our office has been hooked on "Swoon" by producer Rez, 23, and vocalist Cal, 24, collectively known as Timeflies. These Tufts grads (who were both music majors) are hot, single and super-talented. Their sound is a mish-mash of pop, electro, hip-hop, dub step and rock—but they're best known for Cal's ability to rap about anything. Like, an-y-thing. Case in point: Timeflies stopped by the Cosmo office for an exclusive acoustic performance of our fave song and showed off their freestyling skills with a rap about our March issue table of contents. Pretty badass. Rez and Cal told us that they are working on a brand new album which will be released later this year.

March 12, 2012 Mix Masters: YouTube hit ‘Timeflies’ enjoys fame out of a ‘crap apartment’ in B’klyn
In a living room in Crown Heights, a half-‐eaten breakfast sandwich, drumsticks and empty bottles of Glenlivet scotch line a tabletop, while two baby-‐faced former frat boys — Cal Shapiro, 23, and Rob “Rez” Resnick, 22 — kick back, admiring their new coffee table. “The other table was glass. I sat on it and it shattered,” says Resnick, still wearing last night’s clothing. Ten minutes later, Shapiro props his feet against the replacement, and it falls apart. Welcome to the makeshift music studio of homegrown pop stars Timeflies, an “electro hip-‐pop dub-‐something” duo, best known for their “Timeflies Tuesday” remixes recorded on an iPhone. Their rendition of “Under the Sea,” a funk-‐ified (and dirt-‐ified) version of the Disney classic offset by a steel drum, has nearly 1.3 million views on YouTube. So how did two nice Jewish boys from the suburbs of Westchester and New Jersey find each other and start spittin’ clever rhymes? “We were at a party, and Cal was freestylin’ and I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re so good, let’s make stuff,” says Resnick, the beatmaster, who met Shapiro in 2007 at Tufts University.

Cal Shapiro and Rob Resnick, aka “Rez,” of Timeflies are the sort of fellas you wanna grab a pint (or a scotch, their preferred poison) and chat about Homeland with at a dive in LES. They are also the musical group of the future. They have a weekly YouTube series, Timeflies Tuesdays, for which they’ve covered every artist from famed Disney character Sebastian the crab to Ray Charles. They know how to use Photoshop. They even have their very own iPhone App. To the New York based duo, social media is not simply a buzzword, it is the backbone of their success—and boy, are they successful. With their ability to seamlessly blend every musical genre under the sun, the duo have played a sold-‐out show at New York’s Terminal 5 and graced millions of computer screens across the globe. We caught up with production mastermind, Rez, and freestyler extraordinaire, Cal, about Internet fame, life in New York and, of course, Skrillex. Tell me about how you guys got started. CAL: Rez is from Jersey, I’m from New York. We went to school up at Tufts and we were just hanging out with a bunch of people and I started freestyling. He had a seven-‐piece funk band that he was playing with and they had no vocalist. So he was like, you should come down and do vocals for us and it kind of just went from there. He was the drummer, I was the singer and then we spun off into Timeflies. Read More At: http://bullettmedia.com/article/brooklyn-duo-timeflies-reveal-thesecret-to-getting-internet-famous/

INTERVIEW: Timeflies Talks Working On Debut Album And Beyonce Conspiracy
On a chilly night in New York, it’s safe to say the last place you want to be is steps away from the West Side Highway where the risk of getting lost in a see of vacant car dealerships runs high and finding an acceptable watering hole or restaurant is nearly impossible. And yet, the streets are teeming with teenage fans all of whom are wearing far too little considering the fickle weather we’ve been having. I guess I should mention that I’m standing outside of Terminal 5 and we’re a few hours out from a Timeflies show. Ah, it all makes sense now.

POPPING UP: TIMEFLIES
December 7, 2012
Popping Up is our recurring look at new artists making noise on the music landscape. Because, hey — Madonna and Britney were once unknown, too. The music of Timeflies is hard to pin down. The duo’s songs all have an electronic sheen, but not in the overpowering sense that would warrant them a dubstep or EDM label. Further complicating labeling is the fact that singer Cal is prone to unleash some rapping, and that he and producer Rez have a keen ear for radio-‐friendly pop. It’s this agility that enabled them to record seemingly effortless covers of Taylor Swift‘s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and Rihanna‘s “We Found Love,” both of which garnered them a host of new fans online. But with their just-‐released EP One Night, the guys are now succeeding on their own terms. The EP was #2 on the iTunes charts its first week (behind Alicia Keys‘ Girl On Fire) and they sold out New York City’s Terminal 5 so fast that a second show was added — but they told us T5 is just the beginning.

Timeflies Talks About Their New EP & Their Favorite Taylor Swift Song!
The Timeflies Tuesday duo of Cal and Rez are taking the music world by storm, one free-‐styled cover at a time. Recently the singer/producer pair have been traveling around the country on their One Night tour and are gearing up for an EP released today. We got a chance to talk to Timeflies about their tour experience, their EP and what they think of Taylor Swift! What Is Your Favorite Song To Perform As A Group? “‘For You‘ is our favorite because it tends to be higher energy and there’s like a crowd response. Although now that we’ve added ‘Glad You Came‘ that’s a close second because that one’s really fun. We’ve been really lucky in that our fans can recognize the different genres and that they’re getting exposed to whatever we’re into and are accepting of all of our music.” Read More At: http://ryanseacrest.com/2012/11/27/timeflies-prepares-for-theirnew-album-release-tells-us-their-favorite-taylor-swift-song/

The Next Big Thing: Cal and Rez of Timeflies
In today’s over-‐saturated music industry, it takes a lot to stand out. Your average top 40 radio station is permeated with recycled beats, remixes and mindless versions of the same songs. Enter Timeflies, a duo consisting of Tufts alumni Cal and Rez, who are determined to change all of this. Utilizing pop, hip-‐hop, electro, dubstep and rock throughout their tunes, it’s difficult to pin down exactly what they are, but all we know (along with hundreds of thousands of fans) is that it’s good. It also doesn’t hurt that Cal and Rob are so accessible — updating their YouTube page every Tuesdays with new videos for fans (a day which has been dubbed “Timeflies Tuesday.”) With an album and a mixtape under their belts, the boys are preparing for a tour which kicks off today. We were lucky enough to score some face time with the dapper duo as they took a break from recording their as of now untitled album upstate. Read on to see how we passed the time with Timeflies!

P op The Question With Timeflies
It’s amazing the success pop / hip-‐hop duo Timeflies have garnered remixing hits by Kesha, Taylor Swift and even ‘The Little Mermaid’ for their weekly ‘Timeflies Tuesdays’ YouTube segments. But producer Rob “Rez” Resnick and singer / rapper Cal Shapiro were always ones to experiment — especially when it came to freestyle and covers. They started writing and producing beats in Rez’ basement while enrolled at Tufts and would try out their “joke tracks” when they DJed at parties — “we would slip them in and see if people were still dancing,” Cal admitted. Now, they are riding off the success of their most recent EP ‘One Night’ (which peaked at No. 2 on the overall iTunes chart, No. 1 on the iTunes Pop chart) and currently touring the country. In-‐between their sold-‐ out gigs at Manhattan’s Terminal 5 (a 3,000 person venue), the duo visited our office and played a little game of Pop the Question.

Timeflies Releases 'Under The Influence' featuring Rihanna, Adele, The Wanted Boston duo Timeflies is another great example of a very talented new act that not only has great musical instincts but also possesses invaluable DIY savvy when its comes to promoting their music and building a fanbase online. After releasing their debut LP, "The Scotch Tape," back in 2011, the group has been stirring up excitement and garnering loyal fans with their genre-‐ mashing blend of pop, dance and hip hop by playing shows all over the country and launching their Timeflies Tuesdays. Timeflies Tuesdays is a clever and fun segment on their YouTube channel that features the duo's weekly (and highly imaginative) take on a popular song. The group has bundled some of their best Timeflies Tuesday moments on their new mixtape "Under The Influence" that includes crafty remakes of tracks by Rihanna, Adele and The Wanted's 'Glad You Came." Timeflies is the duo of producer Rez and vocalist Cal Shapiro who first started working together while attending college at at Tufts University right outside of Boston. "Rex started a six piece funk band," Shapiro explains in an interview. "He heard me freestyling at a party and was like, “Yo, come sing with my funk band. So I came down, we did a rehearsal, and next thing we know we were playing gigs and won battle of the bands and were opening for Asher Roth and Ludacris." An early inspiration of their popular Timeflies Tuesday was their play with beats, samples and surprise rhymes during college parties. "Rez would write some stuff for me," Call explains. "We recorded some 'joke tracks' and then when he was DJ'ing parties, he would slip them in in the middle of really hot songs, then we would see if the room was like 'What the f*ck?' or if they were dancing." The group adds that sampling other people's songs has been a good way to kickstart their creativity. "You find something and work on it and when you make it better than the original then you’re like oh thats phat," Rez concludes. But their play with other people's tracks has also inspired many of their own ideas and melodies for new original music. Before heading on a national college tour this fall, the group has been in the studio recording new material with none other than Mike Posner. Stay tuned to hear more of that soon. In the meantime listen to Timeflies "Under The Influence" mixtape right here.

October 17, 2012 5 STEPS FOR STARTING YOUR OWN MUSIC CAREER, BY TIMEFLIES
Timeflies is one of the better acts to come out of the college music scene lately. Their sound is difficult to describe: It's pop and electronic, but it's rock and hip-‐hop. It's Cal freestyling, but it's carefully crafted work from two music majors well-‐versed in music theory. It's very, for lack of a better word, "now." Cal and Rez's road to success has been unusual. They're an unsigned act whose first album, "The Scotch Tape," hit No. 8 on iTunes last year, primarly because of an Internet-‐ savvy fanbase, the group's relentless touring, and the word-‐of-‐mouth success of videos like Timeflies Tuesdays. Their July mixtape, "Under the Influence," also found success. Keep in mind: These guys did this without a label. So, we thought, who better to mentor aspiring musicians who how to start your own music career? We wanted to get a nuts-‐ and-‐bolts view at the step-‐by-‐step process you need to go through to "make it." And, from talking to the duo, it's clear that it's not really about having the nicest-‐looking webpage or best equipment or even most dedicated fanbase. Success came from actually buckling down and getting some songs together. Read More At: http://www.brobible.com/music/article/5-steps-starting-music-career

Timeflies Opens Up About Their Album and Dream Collaborations
Timeflies is comprised of producer Rob “Rez” Resnick and vocalist, Cal Shapiro, both class of 2011 graduates of Tufts University. The group formed in October of 2010, after performing together with the band, The Ride, a funk band consisting of Tufts University students. Currently, residing in Brooklyn, NY, the duo is geared up for their upcoming tour and highly anticipated, sophomore album due this fall. Their debut album, The Scotch Tape, landed on the iTunes pop chart and iTunes overall chart, number 2 and number 8 respectively. We caught up with the busy musicians and discussed, Timeflies Tuesday, their favorite city to tour and what female vocalist they would love to perform with. And yes ladies, we asked, they are single. Over the past two years, Timeflies has accomplished a lot and has gained some fairly impressive notoriety in the industry. Asking what the journey has been like so far and their most defining moment, Rez stated, “It has been incredible and surreal. Most defining moment has been sharing the stage with JoJo and Neon Hitch. Our New York show was the sweetest show we have had so far, a very validating experience. We have played in cities I didn’t even know existed and who knew there were people out there that love to party with us?” They both agreed when Cal chimed in and said, “Cincinnati is one of our favorite cities to hang out and play in.” Read More At: http://www.examiner.com/article/timeflies-opens-up-about-theiralbum-and-dream-collaborations

TIMEFLIES TAKES CONTROL J oonbug chats with the guys after their sold-out show in NYC
This past Friday, Timeflies took over Terminal 5 in NYC. They played to a packed crowd of screaming fans and proved they are players to watch out for in the music world. The stage presence between Cal and Rez was filled with charisma as they connected with their fans from the stage. Accompanying that charisma, was an immense amount of energy showcasing their versatile approach to each song they performed. The guys were pumped being in their respective hometown and it showed. They played a mix of well-known songs (with a Timeflies twist, of course!) as well as their own productions. The duo is currently on their first headling tour, 'The One Night Tour,' which goes through November hitting 35 cities. We were able to catch up with them to see what their production routines are, how social media has helped them and what type of music they plan on making in the future.
