In nearly six months People Who Could Fly has gone from a new band just starting out to being signed by a manager, recording its first EPA (a CD with a small amount of songs on it), and this weekend the local band will travel to California to perform at the Viper Room in Hollywood and audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

“I love their youth,” said manager Doug Goldstein, former manager for Guns-N-Roses. “They are vivacious. Their lead guitarist is amazing. I haven’t seen that kind of talent in a long time. Jaz, the lead singer, is a great vocalist. They’re very coachable and approachable and I enjoyed their songwriting.”

The band includes five Ahwatukee and Chandler members, ages 15 to 18: Josh and Jacob Paige, Fletcher Milloy, Jaz Robertson and Levi Siwek. All the members have been in bands in the past but they’ve been encouraged by how easily they’ve come together to form People Who Could Fly. The group writes a new song at each practice and they’ve already performed several gigs in the Valley.

The band’s five-song EPA will be uploaded to iTunes in the coming months. All five songs were recorded live in studio and were also video-taped for a DVD of the group. The band is expected to be back in the studio recording a full-length record in June, which will be released later in the year.
