Band Bio

During a recent and long overdue meeting of the minds, Chattanooga songwriters Emily Kate Boyd and Chris LeCroy gathered for a jam session with fellow local musicians and came to the conclusion that it would be a disservice to the world of music to not join forces. Chris, having been playing with his past project Two Bits a Gander, sourced his backbone-of-the-band bass player, Charles Gaston, and fiddlin’ front lady, Lori Quillen, to join the mix, while Emily summoned the talents of banjo and mandolin player Eric Tittsworth to form the collective now known as Home Made Machine.

Touting such original tunes such as Dust & Delirium, an epic tale of adventure and surrender, and Town By a River, a ballad tribute to their riverside hometown, Home Made Machine is an original musical endeavor likened to that of Shovels & Rope, Ryan Adams, and Wilco.

Drawing influence from traditional blues, folk, rock, bluegrass, and gypsy jazz, Home Made Machine is an Americana cocktail sure to tickle the taste buds of any fine music aficionado. The interlocking harmonies of Boyd, LeCroy, and Quillen are reminiscent of gospel choirs and blues singers of old. Gaston’s country/rock based roots provide a solid foundation, while Eric’s instrumental dexterity mixes rhythm and melody with thrills and trills. It comes served up with a heavy dose of soul, grit, and a side of “why thank you ma’am, but I think I’ll take the road less traveled.” It’s a Home Made Machine.
