Secret Machines Biography
Alternative-Rock band formed in mid-2000 in Dallas, Texas USA by guitarist + vocalist Ben Curtis and his brother, bassist + keyboardist & vocalist Brandon Curtis; the two enlisted the services of guitarist Josh Garza, so, they packed up their things and moved up to Chicago where they quickly got a deal with Ace Fu Records.
In the spring of 2002, the threesome released their debut recording,
a 6-track EP called "September 000", then they took the music
on the road with constant regional tours throughout Southern California
The band relocated to New York where they secured a record contract with Reprise Records who released their first full-length CD, "Now Here Is Nowhere", in May 2004; it reached #33 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, largely on the strength of the sparkling first single "Nowhere Again".
In late April of 2006 Secret Machines' much anticipated second album, "Ten Silver Drops", hit conventional retailers. The set which spreads eight songs over 45 minutes, including the alt-Rock radio single "Lightning Blue Eyes", debuted at #159 on The Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
A self-titled album followed two years later.
