Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta as its favorite husband and wife rock duo, I Am Machi is the 1-2-1-2 collision of two best friends who have uber crushes on each other. They got super married this one time, and now they go on adventures and make music together. 

Jileane's drumming pounds away like an artillery battery--because if you're not going to be loud like guns, what's the point in making rock n' roll? Nathan on guitars weaves in and out of the music like a bad dream. And both share vocal duties. Together, I Am Machi produces a sound that is thick and filling like cowboy coffee. 

After founding in the Spring of 2012, recording and releasing two EPs: Mammal Pants (2012) and Slew (2014), playing countless shows, sharing the stage with the likes of Joel Plaskett, The Pack A.D., The Wet Secrets, Iceland's Sin Fang, and JPNSGRLS, appearing in a mess of festivals (including Edmonton's inaugural Up + Downtown Festival), and touring extensively throughout Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario, I Am Machi has spent the last 4 years high fiving Canada with both hands and music! 

I Am Machi is now preparing for their 2017 cross-Canada tour in support of the release of their Magnetic North // North EP.

Magnetic North is an album about & inspired by Canada with 16 songs divided across 4 EPs. Each EP is designated to one region of Canada (North, South, East, & West). Magnetic North was a DIY effort; the band recorded & mixed the entire record themselves in the upstairs of a coffee shop during the winter of 2015. It is rough around the edges, imperfect, & raw--what you are hearing is an honest, present expression of a band in the process of discovering their identity. This is the first EP of the collection: North. Listen loud...

Along with their evil nemesis cat, Phineas, I Am Machi will set sail toward these new adventurous shores in their RV-turned-tiny-house in which they will live and tour. Forever.
