Bio

Hailing from the Australian capital, Organic Mechanic are a hard hitting hard rock four piece. Organic Mechanic combine the old school sounds of 70s rock with 90s grunge, a touch of modern psychedelic and a smattering of blues, funk and soul to create dense high energy rock, ranging from mellow ballads to lumbering behemoths.

From very different musical backgrounds the four members came together to bond over their love of good old fashioned riff driven rock. After the split of their former band, drummer Marc Le Roy, steeped in the frenetic drumming of Blink and the Foo Fighters, and bassist Adam White, firmly from the field of driving Chilli Peppers and Rage Against The Machine bass, looked for others to forge a new hard rock sound. Quickly finding and recruiting guitarist Reece Humbley and his heavy but thoughtful metal inspired licks they began writing while looking for a lead singer. Finally they found their man in vocalist Thomas Rowell, a singer with a history founded in old school blues, folk and 70s rock. Together their different backgrounds have melded to create music at once loyal to its hard rock roots, but also weaving in sounds and elements from a huge array of genres and styles into a roaring whole.

After winning the ACT Lift Off battle of the bands competition the band spent some time soul searching, refining their sound and delving into deeper depths of blues, psych, punk and doom before finally recording their debut self titled EP at Infidel Studios, to be released in late 2016.
