Nashville-based outfit Fly Golden Eagle has quickly built a following with their authentic, vintage-hued blend of blues, '60s garage, and good old fashioned rock and roll. The band's 2014 sophomore album Quartz was a formidable 26-song opus, and their marathon live performances on tour are just as epic, treating fans to a nonstop flurry of soulful, stomp-worthy rock. Whether they're tearing through rootsy tunes like "Stepping Stone" or taking a break to scarf down a sandwich on stage (don't worry, they've been known to share), Fly Golden Eagle deliver an unforgettable concert experience fans of no-frills rock and classic showmanship won't want to miss.
Fly Golden Eagle is the brainchild of Detroit-born Ben Trimble, a singer and guitarist with Kentucky roots and a deep love of soul, blues, and psychedelic rock. After moving to Nashville to work for a music supervisor, Trimble put together a band and started playing shows as Fly Golden Eagle. The band built a strong local following with their powerhouse performances around town, and in 2011 they made their debut with the album Swagger. The record was a hit with critics, drawing praise for Trimble's twangy, soulful vocals and the razor-sharp musicianship of his backing players. Following several years of touring and writing new material, the band returned in 2014 with their massive sophomore album Quartz. At 26 tracks long, Quartz was ambitious to say the least, and it delivered on all the buzz the band had generated over the years with an impressive display of styles. Since then the band has continued to impress on tour, rocking ticket buyers every time they take the stage to perform their dynamic tunes.
