Timeflies formed in October of 2010 and consists of producer Rob Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro. The two met in 2007 while attending Tufts University and performed together as part of a funk band called The Ride.
Timeflies uses elements of pop, hip-hop, dub step, and rock, and aims to escape genre limitations to create their expressive music. In September of 2011, the duo released their debut album, The Scotch Tape, which rose to No. 8 on the iTunes overall chart and No. 2 on the iTunes Pop chart within 24 hours of its release.
In November of 2012, they released their first EP, One Night, which reached No. 1 on the iTunes overall charts. Their second EP, Warning Signs, featuring the hit single, “I Choose U”, was released in October of 2013.
Mike Stud, a Rhode Island native, became one of Rhode Island’s greatest baseball players of all time. He was named Rhode Island’s 2006 Gatorade Player of the Year, received Louisville Slugger Player of the Year honors, and won a full athletic scholarship to Duke University. Stud holds the lowest ERA in Duke baseball history. After the promising start to Stud’s collegiate baseball career, Tommy John surgery put him on the sidelines. Suddenly, making music became an outlet for him to pass the time. After only a few public releases of self-composed songs, he began to get notable recognition for his rhyming ability and was encouraged to continue.
Mike Stud is now one of the hottest upcoming musicians on the web. His first mix tape, A Toast to Tommy, debuted at No. 3 and No. 2 on the worldwide and US iTunes Hip-Hop Albums charts. He has since headlined a sold-out 20-city national tour and has acquired nearly 10 million YouTube views. His versatility and fun, upbeat style has transformed Stud into a truly viral artist. With each new release, he is constantly showing the world that he’s about to take it over.
