Machines are People Too

Machines are People Too

Machines Are People Too began as a two-piece project between friends, JJ Clark (Bass) and Brian Sylvester (Vocals) in 2010. Shortly after, with the addition ofCain Lassiter (Keys), and Ivan Garcia (Drums), the band began touring regularly across the South East. Word of their unique synth-pop sound spread fast in 2012; with numerous festival appearances including Bonnaroo, Summerfest, Hangout Fest, and Nocturnal Wonderland.

Would you go to Mars?

In a heartbeat.

Have you seen Sharknado?

Not yet. And regretting every minute of it. Saw the trailer in a hotel, but I don't have cable at home.

Most money you will pay for shoes?

$60 seems reasonable. But $20 is more of my price range.

Who do you admire?

My parents. Seems like a tough job.

Something you need to pick up at the store:


What is something that you use to hate but now like?

Umphrey's McGee.

Last time you went to the doctor?

Surprisingly, 1 month ago.

Best way to kill time?

Candy Crush for iPhone.

Have you found it more difficult to break into the rock scene in a primarily country-heavy city like Nashville?

Not at all really. It's a city known for country but has been exploring/supporting other genres for years.

Are there any plans to release a full length album in the future?

Most definitely. After learning from recording/writing 2 EPs it's finally time to see what we could come up with a full length.
