AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER have created a place all their own in the indie pop world. While serving in the US Navy as an air traffic controller, singer/songwriter Dave Munro sent home demos of his songs. This was the first chapter of ATC. Over the next decade, Dave created timeless and classic indie-folk-pop music that is heartfelt, luscious, and authentic. From the Boston scene, the band released four critically applauded albums and toured steadily with an electrifying group now made up of Dave Munro, drummer Adam Salameh, bassist Joe Campbell, guitarist Bobby Borenstein, vocalist/keytarist Emi McSwain, and multi-instrumentalist Steve Scott.

With an eclectic song catalog and category-defying organic/electronic sound ATC has been on everyone’s radar. They were 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, won Best Indie Alternative Song for "You Know Me" in the Independent Music Awards, and have several songs with millions of streams on Spotify. ATC's music has been licensed by Bose, MTV, NBC, ABC, Disney, Verizon, Toyota, and many more.

The band has played Sundance with ASCAP and performed on their first Sixthman Rock Boat cruise with bands like Bronze Radio Return, Jukebox The Ghost, and Michael Franti. An Official act at SXSW, ATC has played showcases for McDonalds, the Grammy Museum, and was featured on Jeff Regan's Alt Nation playlist of bands to watch.

The official music video for "The House" won Improper Bostonian's "Boston's Best" Music Video, as well as a New England Music Award for Best Video. The House was also named Best Video by Boston Magazine, played in rotation on MTVU, MTV2, and on the homepage of Funny Or Die.

Support for ATC has come in from all over. Vanyaland in Boston calls them an evolution forward featuring "crafty alt-pop, an expansion of depth and sound, catchy hooks.” One Stop Record Shop in the UK states "equal parts fascinating and brilliant" while "combining flecks of CHVRCHES with the indie vibes of Pulp and a smattering of Death Cab For Cutie."

Songs from ATC have been featured by Gary Vaynerchuk in the Daily Vee, EA Sports NHL, the UK's top reality show Made In Chelsea. At radio, WXRV and WERS have multiple songs in rotation, songs have been played on Top 40 Mix 93.3 in Kansas City, KX 93.5 in Laguna CA, KCSN & KXLU Los Angeles, WLCA Illinois, WHSN Maine, KXTE Los Vegas, KTCL Colorado and more. CLIF Bar, Quiznos, and Boston Harbor Distillery have asked to work with Air Traffic Controller, as well as MyMusicRX out of Portland, OR. On the road ATC has hit Summerfest, Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Denver's Beaver Creek Music Experience and will continue to play shows throughout the year in support of the new album.
