Biography

Biography:
Formed in Seattle in May of 2005, this multi-media circus of psychedlic electro funkin grooviness
was the brainchild of a new pioneer of the Seattle music scene - Producer and Lead Singer Van Brown.
He recruited some of the best musicians in the Seattle area to create a new sound that would signal a call for
unity. Something that would be familiar to everyone, yet sound like nothing you have ever heard before. The Galaxy
Machine style is one that spans many genres. Some have described their music as High Energy Psychedelic Funk Rock and Roll.
The band's first big break came in 2006 when Grammy-award-winning producer Steve Zuckerman chose their song "Sun Gods" for
a CD created to raise funds for breast cancer research -"Hope: Love Is The Answer". One of the foundations benefiting from
the project is The Garland Appeal, set up as a memorial to Linda McCartney and supported by Sir Paul McCartney. Other
artists on the CD compilation include Richie Havens, Christopher Cross and Robert Fripp. www.neema.ca/hope.htm.
"Burning Throne", the first song from the band's debut EP "Ancient Future", was nominated by the 2007
Toronto Exclusive Music Awards for "Best International Rock Song". www.torontoexclusive.com.
Using multi-media Van Brown was able to bring the vision to the screen when he produced the bands Debut Music Video
“GIVE”, released on the web in Dec. of 2008 . He has worked closely with all kinds of other talented artists and performers, such
as internationally recognized visual artist Roman Villagrana, who created the cover art for the bands Debut EP “Ancient Future”.
The Galaxy Machine is a project that is on a mission to inspire the young and to remind the old that the spirit of innovation
still rules over all creation. When all people of all nations recognize the benefit that comes from working together to making
our world better for all it’s inhabitants then we shall have justice and peace on Earth. This is the philosophy of the Galaxy
Machine. This music interfaces universal appeal with the levity of inspiration. like songs from the past and visions of the
future, they time travel through the mind to reach a common ground and find a new balance. With the spirit of
dance, inter-dimensional sound and vision, the music, either live or on your IPod, takes the listener on an
adventure beyond this world into the land of the imagination, where inspiration is the fuel. It is an
experience that is like no other - you can feel the music calling you to move.

Lyrics

Sun Gods

Written By: Van Brown/ The Galaxy Machine

By the waters edge
two worlds calide
stand up and be counted
the lost city will rize

Just a glimpse into the land of the Sun Gods
Old souls with ancient tales
over looked and undiscovered
how much can we see of this reality
without calling names there stands a lady
Gold hair Gold lips and Gold skin
with every glance she pulls you in

(2x)
you got me wanting you
the way you want me to

entering beyond what is spoken
only you can hear this alone
open up your mind to relations
we can't make it on our own

Just a dip into the city
have a glass of wine
it's so nice to meet you
yea I'm doin fine
no plans but a good time
I can tell by the way you walk you got
style and mystique
eyes like diamonds lips so sweet
eyes like diamonds lips so sweet

(2x)
you got me wanting you
the way you want me to

entering beyond what is spoken
only you can hear this alone
open up your mind to relations
we can't make it on our own
