Dear California Flight,

By winning the Akademia Music Award for Best Funk / Fusion Song for ‘Summer Is Here It's Gonna Get Hot’ you've achieved an important and rare career distinction.

There is a current of old school tension and modern angst captured in the music of California Flight and that energy, as embodied in their debut radio single ‘Love 100’, has got listeners enthralled. It's time the world learned more about this intriguing R&B / soul group.

Some artists try to scale their way to the top of the music industry by personal flamboyance (or inscrutability). Others work the business like hardened politicians and hope that money and fame will redeem whatever compromises are made along the way. But a very few can do it by a golden amalgamation of originality, musicianship and talent. California Flight is such an group. Currently residing in Berkeley, California, California Flight has been fast attracting recognition and honors, and one recent critic's account of their award-winning work probably explains why: ‘California Flight's unforgettable voice- clearly tutored in R&B sensibilities- along with the hypnotic beat, are the stars of this passionate up-tempo track.’ You can hear the authenticity in every chord and verse of their new R&B / soul single, which undoubtedly explains its rapid ascent up the charts. Independent reporter Lily Clark recently caught up with California Flight to talk about their history, musical influences and exciting plans for the future.

 

LILY: Let's just get this out in the open- What is the craziest thing that has happened to you in your music career?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: I went out on tour with Curtis Mayfield soul crooner for two weeks at the age of 17 years old. Then with Marvin Gaye at the age of 18 years old. The same year I opened up for Steve Wonder. All in high school.

LILY: Your song ’Love 100’ is receiving a positive listener response on radio. What was your initial reaction when you first heard your song playing on radio?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: WOW.

LILY: What was the inspiration behind your radio single?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: The Spirit of the Holy Father. Jehovah's agape love.

LILY: It is often said that great art arises from difficult experience. Is there something in your life experience thus far that you would describe as the ‘catalyst’ or ‘fuel’ for your desire to create music?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Our mom. She asked me to give it to Jehovah God first in prayers. If he blesses it who can mess with it. If it's successful, it's his success for you too on whole soul. I believe in Jehovah whole soul. If it wasn't for him I could not do this at all whole soul Col 3:23.

LILY: How would you characterize yourself as an artist/musician? (Ex. Down-to-earth, serious, fun-loving, complicated…)
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: An imperfect person with a fun gift from Jehovah God The Almighty.

   

LILY: What has your experience been like working with the other people on your team?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Complete joy and enduring late hours of maturation into work of artfulness.

LILY: Did you come from a musical background? Are there other musicians in your family?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Yes- Dad, Mom, Grand Dad, Grand Mom and Cousin Frankie, Beverly. Marvin Gaye, Harvey Fugua legendary singers.

LILY: What do you find most rewarding about being an artist? What do you find most challenging?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Making music is life medicine for the broken hearted and the life for the soul to enjoy. The most challenging is late night studio sessions.

LILY: Who are your role models in music?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ.

LILY: Describe your best or most memorable performance.
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Performing before an elementary student body of 300 kids soaking wet on the piano singing one of my greatest pieces and got an standing ovation from the entire school and a host of mighty angles. It was surreal in cold clothes but with a warm heart of joy and tears of joy.

LILY: What advice would you give to young, aspiring artists out there who are unsure and need guidance?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Pray, ask a lot of questions, stay in school, learn an instrument and be diligent and responsible for your craft to succeed with cost. Yes cost. Itss like learning to play golf. You need the tools to know and practice, practice, practice, practice, practice endlessly...

LILY: What's next for you as an artist? Is there an album in the works? If so, what can you tell us about it?
CALIFORNIA FLIGHT: Movie music film scores for theater, video games. We just started on two new movies and a host of video game shows. And runway shows, radio commercial jingles, etc.

LILY: That's

wonderful! Thank you so much for letting us get to know you a little better. We wish you the best of luck and continued success.
