First Time Flyers

When 4 best friends decided to combine their experience of standing ovations at the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, a wealth of West End theatres, as well as their history as major label artists with numerous national tours & Radio 2 playlisting under their belts, the results were always going to be exceptional.

First Time Flyers are Vicki Manser, Jake Morrell, Poppy Fardell & Tim Prottey-Jones and they have an undeniable ear for feel-good melodies, wrapped in the warmth of 4-part harmony. A band made up of 4 lead vocalists & multi-instrumentalists, First Time Flyers are the ultimate self-starters, welcoming into the mix their music production skill set, alongside their eye for concept & design with everything they do.

The band launched to rave reviews at C2C Festival in 2023. A successful first year followed including a sold-out UK headline tour, numerous festival appearances and a slot opening for Bruce Springsteen at BST Hyde Park.

2024 is set to be another busy year, bringing their live show to audiences across the UK including some high-profile festival appearances already confirmed. In addition to a busy live schedule, the band have a slate of new releases planned having spent time writing with some of Nashville’s top songwriters including Jeff Cohen (Sugarland, The Shires), Steve Diamond (Lonestar, Faith Hill) & Fred Wilhelm (Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town).

First Time Flyers are the epitome of bandmates. Long-time friends & collaborators, their energy, personalities & connection come from a safe place of feeling comfortable in each other’s company & they always bring that rapport to the stage, welcoming audiences & media to their inner circle.

Check-in, get your boarding pass, and get ready to experience First Time Flyers in 2024.
