Biography

Miniscule Mechanic Mayhem:
A Tale of Tiny Proportions

Once upon a time, in a far away land (more specifically Long Island City, NY) Tiny Machines came together to produce pure audio magnificence. After their first two hours as a band, two songs had already been written (that's For What It's Worth and Pushover, for those of you keeping score at home). It would only be a matter of weeks until Tiny Machines gelled into a cohesive unit. This unit, as it turned out, was pretty incredible; but only because each member of Tiny Machines is pretty remarkable on his own.

Supplying the thunderous, heart-pounding back beat for Tiny Machines is Tom "Showcase Showdown" Chiodo. It's not just Tom's intensity and break-neck speed that are appealing; but more so his ability to convey emotion strictly through two drumsticks.

Completing the rhythm section is the always amazing and talented, Mr. Jon Keilson. A master of the four string bass, Jon can even kill it on a five string if you ask him nicely. Recently switching over from drums to bass, he is just vocal chords away from making the whole Tiny Machines record by himself!

On guitar, Disney produces melodic mayhem. Hailing from NYC, Disney Prawatyotin has been playing guitar since the tender age of 12, and he's got the biceps to prove it. Disney is also quite the collector; he has amassed an array of guitars that would put even Lester William Polsfuss to shame.

Rounding out the fearsome foursome is vocalist Adam Brozik. His talents go way beyond singing. Not only is he both an engineer and producer, but he is also a force to be reckoned with when it comes to driving the Tiny Machines touring van. A Long Island native, Adam's profound lyrics and energetic presence are captivating. His untouchable style is sure to set the standard for all who come after.

So what lead up to that fateful day in a smoky Long Island City studio?

Since the fellows in Tiny Machines all wear many hats, Adam Brozik (vocals, engineer) and Jon Keilson (bass, producer) have their own recording business. While in the process of recording Tom's (drummer, drumstick breaker) now defunct band, said band broke up. Since Tom had an instant connection with the aforementioned audio masterminds, he asked them to start a side project with him. Through much convincing and maybe a little money under the table, Jon and Adam said yes. As luck would have it, Disney Prawatyotin (guitar, guitar buyer) was free to come on board, and had been eager and waiting to start a band with Tom since they met back in 2001.

It would only be a matter of weeks until Tiny Machines fused together and wrote the six songs that would launch them out of New York City and into... well, Great Mills Maryland. The official birth of Tiny Machines was their first show at Park Rock Festival in the wonderful city of Great Mills. The show went so well that the band headed straight back to their home base to record "A Likely Story", their debut EP which was released 12.25.07.

Following the release, the band set out on a DIY two week tour of the east coast. Tiny Machines wowed audiences from Asbury Park, NJ down to Tampa, FL and back up to York, PA. With a tour under their collective belt, Tiny Machines will be perfecting their sound by playing shows throughout the quad-state area. World domination is just around the corner! All in all a happy ending; and so it was, a happy ending.

Lyrics

Pushover

Written By: Tiny Machines (Brozik, Chiodo, Keilson, Prawatyotin SESAC)

Wake up this everything that you are
Breathe deep and hold me down
Wake up this everything if you want
Go on just leave me here

I’ve seen you a thousand times before
But you refuse to remember my name
Beneath the glasses and that smile
I know there's something more than a trace

Wake up this everything that you are
Breathe deep and push me down
Wake up this everything if you want
Go on and leave me here

Still gray on the rules but I'm sure that I've played this game once or twice before
Remind me exactly how this should go
And what I'm supposed to say
It's all just stumbling moving sideways
'Til you find an excuse to move on
When you do, please tell me your name
And I'll just keep on walking backwards

Wake up this everything that you are
Breathe deep and push me down
Wake up this everything if you want
Go on and leave me here
This is the last time that I'll say this
Then I'm walking away
We never needed what you had to give...

Wake up this everything that you are
Go on and push me down
Wake up this everything if you want
Go on and leave me here by myself

Wake up now - hold your breath
Use your eyes to put me in my place
This is the last time that I'll say this...
I'm already gone

Did you get the invitation to my world
Because I never heard your call
You're the only name still on my list
So we'll get this started when you

Show your face around again now I dare you
To follow words with actions and compromise
This reputation you've built with lies and promises
You never planned on keeping
You're so predictable

Was it worth the bother to read through these words
Because you've never shared at all
You're the only face stuck in my mind
But the first frame I'd rip from my wall

Did the visits go just as they'd been planned
Because I never showed at all
You're the only taste stuck in my mouth
You've been growing bitter as we go

Show your face around again now I dare you
To follow words with actions and compromise
This reputation you've built with lies and promises
You never planned on keeping
You're so predictable

Show your face around again now I dare you
To follow me with eyes and best intentions
Your reputation is just a slight on my good name
You never planned on keeping
You're so predictable

You're pulling me along
Into a plan that's intended to harm me
Let's scuttle something so beautiful
And watch it burn from a distance

You're pulling me along
Into a world that's intended to harm me
Let's tear down something so beautiful
I'll watch you burn from a distance

Show your face around again now I dare you
To follow words with actions and compromise
This reputation you've built with lies and promises
You never planned on keeping
You're so predictable

Days and Miles

Written By: Tiny Machines (Brozik, Chiodo, Keilson, Prawatyotin SESAC)

What is this distance
If not days and miles
Is it in her smile
Or just in my
Conscience plaguing me
September's growing closer
We're both getting older
As this fades another chapter

You've shard your last fear
On a caring shoulder
Is this almost over
I can hear you still
Hiding from this rush of
What you least expected
Scattered lovely, timing perfect
Just to see you walk away

I've never understood exactly what your breath means
When it's only coming through over lines and distant calls
Hours difference makes this all seem hardly worth it
When I'm falling asleep only trying to catch up with you

I wish I could trade your promised ever after
For something much better that you might commit
To this what you should have
The words you spoke came after
You decided you'd need nothing more from me
And walked away

I've never understood exactly what your breath means
When it's only coming through over lines and distant calls
Hours difference makes this all seem hardly worth it
When I'm falling asleep only trying to catch up with you

I never understood exactly what your love meant
When it only came as weekly letters folded edges
Miles difference made it all seem hardly worth it
When I'm falling asleep only trying to catch up with you

I know it's hard to commit to this life of sober promises
I do
From the moment we walked in that room you were sizing me up
The way I've since learned you do
I'm not willing to give if what you want is the same as what we had
Why don't you just leave me here with this quaint little life
That I've built for myself

I've never understood exactly what your breath means
When it's only coming through over lines and distant calls
Hours difference makes this all seem hardly worth it
When I'm falling asleep only trying to catch up with you
