Sunbeam Sound Machine showcase NYC

The story of the project

After a successful run of releases from Sunbeam Sound Machine, the band has been invited to play at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City! CMJ is a music industry conference that invites up-and-coming artists from around the world to perform in front of members of the worldwide music community, including label representatives, international festival promoters and fellow musicians.
The solo studio recording project of Melbournian Nick Sowersby, Sunbeam Sound Machine has evolved into a 5-piece touring band that has travelled extensively across the country, supporting the likes of The Drums (USA), Eagulls (UK), D.D. Dumbo, Gang Of Youths, Art Of Sleeping, Teeth & Tongue, Methyl Ethel and Youth Group. CMJ will be Sunbeam Sound Machine’s first ever international appearance.

How the funds will be used

The trip to the USA will cost in excess of $15,000. We’re hoping to raise a fraction of that to help  pay for flights to get the 5-piece band over to the states, in conjunction with a fundraising show at The Shadow Electric on October 2nd and working away at our respective unfulfilling workplaces.

Some of my other work

Since 2013, Sunbeam Sound Machine has released a double EP (One/Sunbeam Sound Machine), an LP (Wonderer), and, most recently, a double A-side 7” (Cloudbreaks/Getting Young)to critical acclaim.

Praise for One/Sunbeam Sound Machine:
3RRR ALBUM OF THE WEEK
FBi ALBUM OF THE WEEK
BEAT MAGAZINE ALBUM OF THE WEEK

“Sunbeam Sound Machine opens a gateway to emotional awareness that is sorely in demand in these dysfunctional times.”
Beat Magazine

“This impressive debut release comprises two previously released EPs. ‘One’, featuring the earliest recordings, is raw and immediate, a collection of garage and psych-pop tracks. ‘Sunbeam Sound Machine’, the second EP floats in a haze, a smokier series of songs with strong melodies that linger with the listener.” Simon Winkler, 3RRR

Praise for Wonderer:
FBi RADIO ALBUM OF THE WEEK
RTR FEATURE ALBUM
THE MUSIC ALBUM OF THE WEEK
THE BRAG ALBUM OF THE WEEK

“As Sunbeam Sound Machine, Nick makes beautiful blissed out dreampop” – BROOKLYN VEGAN

“It’s one of those albums you need to sink into, the epitome of a slow-burner, and its second single “Wandering, I” is a great example of this. Dripping in reverb and guitar pedals, it’s a psych-lovers dream — a blissful journey into Sowersby’s creative mindset..” – INDIE SHUFFLE

“An utterly charming record that demands repeat listening.”. – THE MUSIC

“His music – booming, cheerful psychedelia distinguishes itself from the ratbag garage bands overrunning the rest of the eastern seaboard for something more introspective.”Mess and Noise

Praise for Getting Young/Cloudbreaks
“On the more upbeat and punchy side of things for Sowersby, it showcases his charming songwriting and expansive musicianship. The sunny track builds nicely, and reaches its summit with a glorious guitar blowout guaranteed to fill you with euphoria.” IndieShuffle

Challenges


The invitation to CMJ came at very short notice, so the challenge has been to plan and fund this trip in that time. The 5-piece touring band will be making the trip on a shoestring budget, and any assistance we can get will be greatly appreciated and rewarded with the range of prizes we have on offer.
