Biography

The Buffalo, NY- based Pop/Rock band The Boy And His Machine formed in the summer of 2007. Ron Griffo (Vocals/Guitar) and Ryan Martin (Drums) had teamed together to form the band, while guitarist Jake Strawser & Bassist Christian Adams would later complete the lineup. Shortly after the bands formation studio time followed, and the band recorded their debut EP, 2007's All That We Make It. After releasing All That We Make It in 2007, TBAHM began to earn a fervent following supplying the perfect dose of infectious pop hooks and unique lyrics that any listener could really relate to. In 2008 the band appeared on the Vans Warped tour and shortly after made their way to Baltimore MD to work with renown producer Paul Leavitt on their latest release "Show Them What You're Made Of". As 2008 was coming to and end the band was voted one of the top 21 Unsigned artists of 2008 by purevolume.com - not bad for a few guys from the frozen tundra known only as Buffalo NY. 2009 looks to be an exciting year for the guys and with the release of their new EP right around the corner the band has big plans - taking on the world one city at a time.

Hook, Line & Sinker

Written By: THE BOY AND HIS MACHINE

Hook, Line & Sinker

And Oh oh...we'll make our way through this mess...
we wrote this story in the key of the lives we've led...
and distance is the only chance we have...to not turn out like them...

and I know, you'll find a way to pull me into this...
hook, line, and sinker baby...
and you, will burn the bridge that you walked on to get here...
and I, will spend time finding and alibi that works...

until then, I'll be patiently waiting...
and you'll be sinking faster than a ship in shallow water...
you let yourself down, now find a way out...
and I know, you'll find a way to pull me into this...
hook, line, and sinker baby...
and you, will burn the bridge that you walked on to get here...
and I, will spend time finding and alibi that works...

Coming Clean

Written By: THE BOY AND HIS MACHINE

Take it from me...you've got a lot to learn right now...
and I'm waiting...to bring this home...
we'll never walk away...we're not afraid...

I'm not giving up and I won't walk away, I'm not giving in...so sing this with me...

Time keeps ticking...
and I've been sitting all night long...
You'll learn your lesson, and make the same mistakes...again...and again...

I'm not afraid...

I'm not giving up and I won't walk away, I'm not giving in...so sing this with me...
I'm coming clean, it's been a long time, never thought I'd be the one to break your fall...

Some things are better left unsaid, but this is something I think you should know...

I'm not afraid...

I'm not giving up and I won't walk away, I'm not giving in...so sing this with me...
I'm coming clean, it's been a long time, never thought I'd be the one to break your fall...

Tonight, We Ride

Written By: THE BOY AND HIS MACHINE

And I've got a feeling...oh...

Scream at the top of your lungs, we're gonna get this started.
nothing to look back on, the world is ours tonight we ride whoa oh...

The Walls Of Regret

Written By: THE BOY AND HIS MACHINE

Where have you been...
And what have you done with them?
We've lost all that we know...
And forever is losing it's ring...

You've taken the light out of this room...
And now I'm begging for a way out...

Breaking down the walls of regret...
And I know that this could mean the end...
Cause scientists couldn't fix this mess...
So scream oh....

And these are the things I say to sink you...
And never forget, that this is who we are...
But our time wasn't now...

Breaking down the walls of regret...
And I know that this could mean the end...
Cause scientists couldn't fix this mess...
So scream oh....

This could mean the end...
Where have you been..

Breaking down the walls of regret...
And I know that this could mean the end...
Cause scientists couldn't fix this mess...
So scream oh....
