This aint your mama's bar band....

Machine is a modern hard rock/alternative band from Southern Oregon. Since 2008 we have been playing covers in clubs throughout the Rogue Valley and beyond. The music we covered tended toward the harder end of the rock/alterntive spectrum. We enjoyed playing songs not ususally covered by other local bands. Songs we connected with on a gut level and could give the most heartfelt performance to.

     In early 2012 we began transitioning from cover material to writing, recording, and playing our own original songs.
 We have now made the transition to playing original music almost exclusively and released our first EP. We will be phasing out our cover shows and adding more original showcases with other local bands.

A Farewell to Covers 

Over the last year MACHINE has been moving toward phasing out our cover songs and focusing on original material exclusively. We are in the final phases of that transition and have only a few cover shows remaining! This weekend at JD's Sports Pub we will continue on that journey. We'll be playing all of our favorite covers from over the years, including our famous acoustic set. We will also be showcasing original music from our first EP "one" as well as BRAND NEW SONGS from our upcoming release this fall. We may continue playing covers in some fashion, probably under a different name. Come join us in ushering in a new era for MACHINE and our awesome fans!

This changes everything...

We are very proud and happy to announce the release of our first four song ep entitled "one". Completed in the fall of 2013, "one" signifies our transition from a cover band to the band we always knew we wanted to be, though it took much longer than we anticipated. As this was to be the first example of our sound, these four songs were chosen to demonstrate the diversity of our influences and to honor our journey to this moment. Enjoy!

    I went to school with Mike, and have just recently reconnected with him and learned of his band, and even though I try to stay away from most hard rock/ alternative Bands now days as they have no soul/meaning just screaming, I checked Machine out and was pleasantly surprised, and addicted all at once. Thank Goodness finally some music you can sink your teeth into and releate too at the same time. Well Done, and keep up the Great Job
