Words In Flight is an acoustic band supporting the original music of singer-songwriter Drew Brightbill. Mixing folk, indie, rock, blues, jazz and pop into a sound greater than the sum of its parts, Drew composes songs that touch on universal themes and make audiences think about the world around them. Drew’s music is listenable and melodic, drawing from influences like the Beatles, the Decemberists, Wilco and the Old 97’s. The band—drums, bass, piano, accordion and acoustic guitar— supports Drew’s original tunes with admirable restraint, placing the songwriter’s words and melodies front and center. With an engaging live show that draws audiences into the music, Words In Flight has become a favorite in the Boulder-Denver music scene. The versatile lineup can perform as anything from a duo to a full band and has also played outdoor festivals and larger events.
In March, 2011, Words In Flight was voted Best Local Musician/Group by the Boulder newspaper The Colorado Daily.
