Since their formation in 2015, San Diego band
Imagery Machine has set the local music scene on fire. Their
distinct style of female-fronted psychedelic rock is unlike
anything else around, seamlessly blending classic new wave with
modern and indie rock to create an intoxicating, dynamic sound.
Fronted by the sultry voice of Jennie Lynn, the band features
accomplished musicians James Howard on lead guitar, bassist Will
Parsons, and drummer Tyler Shimkus. Imagery Machine’s most recent
EP, Skydriver, is nominated for Best
Indie/Alternative Album at the 2018 San Diego
Music Awards. The band’s musical energy and passion shines
through their immersive live performances, which feature
kaleidoscopic lighting, frenzied stage presences, and an
imaginative use of glitter.
For this podcast, LJ is joined in the studio by singer Jennie
Lynn and guitarist James Howard. They discuss how the band got
started, what exactly is the Monthly Machine, and where
the best dive bars in San Diego can be found.
