"As some of the most sought after sidemen and singers in NY's Hudson Valley, for Will Bryant (keyboards), Lee Falco (drums), and Brandon Morrison (Bass) it seemed fitting when Donald Fagen of Steely Dan put a new band together in 2017, the savvy songwriter handpicked three of his favorite musicians from the area.

Simply stated, they had been on Fagen's radar for years. Christened The Nightflyers, they barnstormed the U.S. last summer, thrilling Fagen's fans not only with their personality, charm and musical charisma, but also a clear command of the Dan's highly complex and sophisticated songbook.

Their unique playing style and those warm, rich, floating harmonies have become a kind of hallmark, and a reason why the members of The Package have also performed with such 60s & 70s icons as John Sebastian, Graham Nash, Kate Pierson (B-52's), Bill Payne (Little Feat) as well as modern masters like Amy Helm, The Mammals, Doyle Bramhall II, Jay Collins and Scott Sharrard of the Gregg Allman Band, Connor Kennedy and Buffalo Stack, among many others.

Now stepping out into the forefront, Bryant, Morrison and Falco's original music is exploring, and expanding, the sound of pop music itself; the songs speak to the complexities of love, longing and entanglements. You don't need a watch to keep time as Morrison and Falco lock into step with their puttering rock, soul and country patterns. Bryant adds a flowing elegance on piano and keyboards, creating an eloquent ensemble sound. And when they stack their sighing vocal harmonies, the singular sound spans genres and generations."
