The eagerly awaited third album ‘”Thoughts From The Drunken Vaults” by AirCrash Detectives launched in 2016, followed by their 2017 album “Walking the Plank.” Following on from their first and second albums ‘Looking For A Safe Place to Land’ in 2014 and ‘Shock Therapy’ 2015 singer and writer Bob Boyle has finally found his groove playing alongside guitarist and band leader and co-producer Chad Lister.
After a stunning live debut in August 2015 the band have developed and honed their showmanship and are now ready for prime time. If you think about all your favorite parts of an indie, country and rock band, they have been seamlessly meshed together, into a thoroughly entertaining and provocative live show.
Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina AirCrash Detectives had a chance meeting with producer and engineer Dick Hodgin in 2014 and alongside Chad Lister they have developed the sound that is now instantly recognizable. The new single 5 Giants is receiving rave reviews and looks certain to make the band a household name. ‘Thoughts From The Drunken Vaults’ is as close to delightful body of work as you can get claims lead singer Bob Boyle.
After hearing the final cuts, he was enthused at the depth and variety of thought provoking topics that were explored, along with the overall quality of the songs and musicianship displayed by Lister, Egan, Barger and special guest Steve Nieve. The texture and layers will surely delight the most critical listener! The under effected production lets the songs breathe with ease.
He reminds us to enjoy the journey as most of us never get to where we are going.
Thar She Blows EP (2018)
Recorded live in Raleigh NC in the spring of 2018. We have captured the energy of the band and it is reflected in this batch of songs. We are gaining on it. We love the diversity of the music and the edgy themes that color the landscape. We hope you continue to enjoy our efforts.
Cheers Bob

Magic Man EP (2018)
Magic Man
‘You’ll know it when you see it’ my father, would say it, like it was the holy grail of wisdom. When I did finally see it, I was around 10 years old and to this day I don’t know how he did it, but I was amazed and since that day I have been very curious. I love mysteries and puzzles to solve, I also have a stubborn resolve to admire brilliance and seek out those who excel at a, particular, skill, and just to let them know that whether it was through sheer hard work or raw natural talent, I want to say ‘That was f--king brilliant’ Keep it up.
Vocals: Bob Boyle and Henry Gorman, Piano and Things: Steve Nieve, Guitars, Drums Programming & Bass: Henry Gorman
O.B.I.T
If you hear some unpleasant stuff directed at you while you are alive, can you imagine what they are going to say about you when you are dead? One of my favorite things to do in NYC was look at the obituary column in the New York Times to see who died and what they said about them. With my own sense of mortality long since realized, my day is coming. By the law of averages, I am two thirds of the way through, will I write about myself or leave it to others? Please be kind.
Vocals: Bob Boyle and Henry Gorman, Things and Piano: Steve Nieve, Guitars, Drums Programming & Bass: Henry Gorman
Right In Front Of You
I imagine a young David Bowie seeing New York City for the first time. The brightness of the lights, the glitter, the glamour and a youthful sense of invincibility that can inspire generations. It can also suck you in and spit you out just as quick. I have been drawn to its people and its energy over the years, it keeps re-inventing itself. Most people struggle to get out of, their own way. There are a few who take it on and turn it into something fabulous.
Vocals: Bob Boyle, Steve Nieve, Henry Gorman, Piano and Things: Steve Nieve, Guitars, Drums Programming & Bass: Henry Gorman
Times Up
Very few people have any sympathy for well paid sports stars who are traded like cattle and told where and when to report. It seems quite a brutal system where it rewards a few and everything else is collateral damage. Even through the horse trading whether it’s in a sports team, a personal or business relationship or a band for that matter the person on his or her way out know when their time is up. It is instinctual. Keep an eye out for it.
Vocals: Bob Boyle and Henry Gorman, Things: Steve Nieve, Guitars, Drums Programming & Bass: Henry Gorman,
Thelonious
Mister Monk as he was known was born and raised in Eastern North Carolina. It is a beautiful, rural and unforgiving landscape. He battled ‘the crazy’ most of his life and with it came the genius. Recognized as one of the jazz greats, he had style and played his instrument the Thelonious way. It would be great to see other talent dedicate themselves to the craft and excel to the Pulitzer Prize level. I am not saying you have to, but you can try.
Vocals: Bob Boyle and Henry Gorman, Piano and Things: Steve Nieve, Guitars, Drums Programming & Bass: Henry Gorman, All tracks written by Bob Boyle except Right In Front Of You [Steve Nieve / Bob Boyle]
Recorded in Paris, London and Raleigh 2018, Produced, Mixed and Mastered by Henry Gorman, Special thanks to Chad Lister and Dick Hodgin

A walk across Wimbledon Commons in 2013 sparked a chance conversation with a seasoned touring session drummer, after a brief exchange of niceties, came the remark ' Bob stop making excuses and just f---ken do it' Some people have a calling and some people are born to be in front of an audience.
If you take a Little Scottish, a Little Southern and Little Piece of the Rest of the World and throw them all in a blender, top it off with a sense of optimism , attitude and reality, you will begin understand where we are coming from and where we are going. We always enjoy the journey, what's the point of going, if you are just going to complain The raw emotion of the indie sound meets the irony of country music, singer Bob Boyle remarked ' if you like grew up listening to 'The Clash and now you enjoy listening to Rascal Flats, who you gonna go see?
