Fight the Tide
Straight out of Austin, the Live Music Capitol of the World, comes the powerful rock band, Sunmachine. The band consists of members Mitch Armstrong, Jimi Jackson, Jason James, and Rob Rosson. Sunmachine's sound is simply hypnotic. It's passionate and intense with unique time signatures like you've never heard. From truly undeniable hard rock hooks and addictive melodies to a mix of wailing guitars and provocative lyrics, their sound is infectious. The powerful and evocative voice of the band that always commands attention is lead singer and guitarist, Mitch Armstrong. He has honed his vocal craft not by just singing the songs but by infusing emotion into each breath he takes on stage. His visions are easily conveyed through his passionate lyrics and are complimented by his acoustic-electric guitar. Hard-hitting drummer Jimi Jackson, a former Lava/Atlantic recording artist of The Boondock Saints, toured the U.S. in support of his debut album, enjoyed national radio play and recorded with guitar legend Jeffrey 'Skunk' Baxter. He plays with unrivalled authority and carries the band with solid rhythms. While taking his smokin' solos to screaming crescendos, lead guitarist Jason James, blends power with grace. His tasteful and versatile style includes the use of counter rhythms and effects to produce a fusion of psychedelic sounds. Bassist Rob Rosson defines smooth. With his prowl and attack of the rhythm, he compliments the drums in an effortless fever. Rob is a complex, intellectual musician who has meticulously studied his craft. His sound is an intriguing blend of rock, funk and blues. Sunmachine consciously strives for originality, fearlessly pushing themselves into new territory. Together these four musicians embark on a never ending journey of expression. Make some time to join the ride!!
