While serving in the US Navy as an actual air traffic controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home 4-track demo tapes of songs written during his deployment. When his enlistment was up, Munro returned to his hometown of Boston and formed the genesis of the aptly named Air Traffic Controller. Nominated for an MTV “Best Break-Out Artist” Video Music Award in late 2009 and winner of "Best Indie Rock Act" of the 2010 Boston Music Conference, Air Traffic Controller’s modern day, indie rock sound and pop sensibilities put them at the top of the Northeast media outlet's Best-Of lists. Live, the band is often accompanied on stage by an entire string section to capture and recreate its brilliant, full sound.
