Subtle Machines are a funky jazzy band based in South West UK.
Formed in 2021, members are Nick Marshall (guitar), Cole Winters (bass), Phil De Jong (drums), Mark Robson (keys) and Mike Rowlands (sax).
The band explore funky jazzy music – playing a mixture of original and classic tunes.
You might spot the deep-rooted influence of Funk and Jazz – more specifically soul jazz, spiritual jazz, boogaloo, New Orleans funk, jazz dance, jazz rock and psychedelia – and more!
The sound is vintage-inspired, taking us all right back to days of valves and vinyl! You might hear classic yet relatively unknown tracks by artists like Boogaloo Joe Jones, Rusty Bryant, The Meters, Gene Ammons, Charles Kynard; or by jazz greats such as Charles Lloyd, John Scofield or John Coltrane – as well as many original tunes written by the band.
The band are currently working on their first album, due for release in 2022 – you can hear some work in progress on Soundcloud.
