Air Traffic Controller

Air Traffic Controller Bio

Air Traffic Controller has created a place all their own in the indie pop world. Serving in the US Navy as a real-life air traffic controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home demos written during deployment. Bandmate and singer/songwriter Casey Sullivan met Dave soon thereafter and the two forged a collaborative bond that has become the vocal sound of ATC. With an eclectic song catalog and category-defying organic/electronic sound, people are taking notice of ATC. They were 2015 Billboard Hot 100 Fest performers with The Weeknd and Justin Bieber, placed on the NPR Hot 100 List for SXSW, named Guardian UK Band of the Day, Best Indie Alternative Song in the Independent Music Awards, and have over 12 Million Spotify plays. ATC's music has been licensed by Bose, MTV, NBC, ABC, Disney, Verizon, Toyota and many more.
