Fianlist for "Best Live Band" and winner of "Best Hard Rock Band" by the 2008 Orange County Music Awards(OCMA), Star Off Machine is quickly finding prominence in the Southern California Music scene. Formed in early 2007 by Erick Holloway(vocals), Robin Charlet(guitar), Tut(drums) and Jeremy Whiteley(Bass), this Huntington Beach quartet is born of a broad spectrum of influences ranging from Sevendust to Sunny Day and Jeff Buckley to Taproot. The band's stage show is riotous as their rapidly growing Southern California fan base chant contagious melodies back at them.
Star Off Machine teamed up with producers, Tom Tatman(Stone Sour, Craig Erickson, Living Sacrifice), Tommy D(Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg) and percussion extraordinaire Stephen Perkins(Jane's Addiction, Porno For Pyros, Panic Channel) to record their first full length record entitled “Burn This”. Creating a romantically tragic soundtrack for any unsavory loss of innocence, Star Off Machine weaves emotionally wrought melodies and intimate lyrics with layers of grinding guitars, solid bass and explosive drums. From beginning to end, the band's broad spectrum of influences are evident . The first track, "Disaster", is an in-your-face, hard rock song about reflecting upon one's life only to find out what a mess it has become. In contrast, the album's last track, "Ninth Floor", is a somber orchestral piece about facing absolutes on the road to an eminent end.
The groups timely accounts of early success foreshadow its bright future while they tour to support “Burn This”
