“Failure Machine is a soul rock duo from Reno ready to blow the roof off of any space that’ll have them. Their live shows are intimate and fun, wild and grungy.” –Tony Contini, Reno Tahoe Tonight

“These Reno boys prove they’ve got chops and you can almost hear them mopping the sweat from their brow with a monogrammed handkerchief.” –Roland Monger, Listen with Monger

“They blend soul, rock ā€™nā€™ roll and funk together seamlessly and then blanket it in grunge, making what could be a familiar and even trite sound into something unique and exciting.” –Katie Dow, Reno News and Review

“It’s pretty serious, badass garage + soul + funk + rock with wicked horns…” –Sarah Litt, Music She Blogged

“Soul, baby. Failure Machine has somehow channeled the ghosts of late great soul/R&B artists, dirtied them up (in a good way) electrified them.” –Beau Dowling
