Former air traffic controller, Dave Munro got his musical start creating demos while serving away from home in the US Navy. Returning from deployment to find a hometown fan base who’d taken a liking to his work, Munro formed a band. Air Traffic Controller’s music combines life experience with a unique sound which has been gaining big name attention since 2009, resulting in — among other things — a nomination for MTV’s “Best Break-Out Artist” and a win for “Best Indie Rock Act” of the 2010 Boston Music Conference.
Featured song: “Hurry Hurry”
NORDO, Air Traffic Controller’s second album, was released in June by Sugarpop Records.
Upcoming tour dates:
7/20 @The Back Page, Lowell
8/31 @Boarding House Park, Lowell
