GHOST IN THE MACHINE

GHOST IN THE MACHINE

ARTIST BIO

Ghost in the Machine is reborn! The U.S. band that has fused Rock, Electronica, and Industrial into their own form of "Rocktronica" has now evolved an organic rock sound only GITM could deliver - a perfect blending ofGhost in the Machineelectronic hard rock, industrial, and electronic dance music. Its latest album,Broken from Binary, is truly the reinvention of Ghost in the Machine.
Since its first album, named for the band, was released in 1998, GITM has been a trailblazer in Rocktronica, creating an uncategorizable hybrid of modern rock, metal and hard rock, dance, urban, industrial, techno, and electronica, all in various flavors, melded into a perfect, seamless mix that people love to hear. Many of the songs from the ground-breaking albums that followed (The Haunting BeginsThe Repo Session, and The One Within), have weaved their way into 21st Century American culture, heard on TV shows on almost every major cable channel, in feature movies and indie films, on commercials, and in video games, mobile apps, and other modern media.
While staying true to its industrial/electronic roots, with aggressive and emotionally charged songs, Ghost in the Machine's Broken from Binary, released in 2015, brings a new, modern, dark and edgy sound with pop appeal. Featuring GITM's cover of Billy Joel's song "Pressure," the voice ofGhost in the Machine takes you on a journey through the dark side. As an unseen ghost, you are witness to what happens inside the machine - love and hate, oppression and enlightenment woven into well-crafted songs with thundering grooves, heavy guitars and lush electronics.
Ghost in the Machine
Ghost in the Machine's songs always exude an understanding of how music reflects life - both the good and the bad. Music makes us feel invigorated; it motivates and drives us. It also angers and saddens us. It's really another sense by which we experience the world around us. Thus, life and music are intimately intertwined. By casting a wide net and bringing it to bear with utmost focus, GITM's lean, mean compositions have consistently brought a magnifying glass to life's complexities…and done so with keen listener appeal.
The duo of C4 and Face were the founding members and remain the front line of GITM today. Wanting to create music that fused elements of different musical styles, C4 and Face, both former members of late-'80s metal bandHangman, formed the new band in 1995. In early 1996, the band nameGhost in the Machine was chosen after seeing it on a movie box. It was 
Ghost in the Machine
symbolic of the band's essence: while a computer seemed lifeless at the time and devoid of emotion, the band's music - created in, and coming from, the computer - seemed to bring the computer to life; it is that music that is the ghost in the machine.
Its debut EP, the self-titled Ghost in the Machine, was unleashed in 1998 upon an audience of listeners who quickly made it a success. The following year saw the release of the band's full-length effort, The Haunting Begins, which, for the first time pushed GITM into prominence in charts at sites such as the former Mp3.com, former Garageband.com andSoundClick.com.
Fellow friend and musician DJ R.J. joined the band in 2002; and in 2005, the trio released The Repo Session followed by The One Within in 2006. In 2008, the original members and DJ R.J. separated due to creative differences.
Acclaim for GITM grew and continues to grow. Featuring "Contact," "Invincible," and an industrial rock cover of ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man,"The One Within has, for instance, gone on to win Best Industrial Album at the 2009 JPF Music AwardsGITM songs "Three," "Invincible" and "Embrace" have also placed in international songwriting competitions and many other GITM songs have been nominated, while "Rodeo" and "Second Coming" have been features and chart toppers on sites such as the formerMp3.comGarageband.com and Broadjam.com. In both 2012 and 2013,GITM was selected as one of Supercuts "Rock the Cut" Ambassador Artists, and "Invincible" and "Three" have been featured on Supercuts radio commercials and in-store programming.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
