- To explain MACHINE, we need to go back to 1989. That is the year Martin (a.k.a. Bonefish) and Ed met each other and that’s when their first band, ‘Julia,’ was formed. The band was a local success story that soon became national when touring and releasing their album on Mega Records with TV, radio and video appearances. In 2008 Martin and Ed began writing new material and their creative collaboration took them to a heightened existence and ‘MACHINE’ was born. As of February 2012, MACHINE has launched a marketing campaign to promote their debut EP release of ’16:28′ produced by industry renowned producer, Yoad Nevo, in the UK.
Ederson (11:00 – 11:40 pm performance)
- Boston singer/songwriter, Ederson, inked a deal with Innsbruck Management. Born Ederson Beauvois in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Ederson spent his formative years surrounded by the large and creative Beauvois clan.
