Born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, V.Carter and iRAWniQ are Flying Without Wingz. Formed in early 2009, FW² have burst onto the Grand Rapids music scene, fusing elements of hip hop, rock, dance and electronica into one unique sound.
Awarded “Next to Blow” at the 2009 Grand Rapids Hip-Hop Awards, the duo released three albums (The X-Files Mixtape, No Wingz Allowed EP and their most recent release, HipTRONica) in 2009. From those releases, the songs “All Stars” and “Turn on Your TV” received radio airplay on 104.5 WSNX in Grand Rapids. Known for an incredibly energetic live show, FW² have shared the stage with Slum Village, Flynn Adams, Kids In The Hall, 88 Keys, Donnis, Izzy Kizza and many others while playing countless shows in the Midwest. Their fan base continues to grow and the act finds itself ready and able to fly even higher in 2010.
For FW², not only is the sky the limit, but the whole universe is within reach.
