Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Maiden & Machine is the music based, cloning experiment of Janelle Palmer, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and ‘bedroom’ producer based in Northland, NZ.
""I’ve always thought it’d be kinda cool to clone myself…and in a musical sense Maiden & Machine is just that. I jam and create with a band of Me’s. And the results are songs that are intimately me. They tell my stories, my life experiences, my loves, hurts and annoyances. It’s music that makes me feel…and I hope it takes others on a journey too.""
Combining sampling & synthesis techniques of electronica with the melody and lyrical styles of indie/pop, the songs of Maiden & Machine are catchy, emotional, gritty. Grunged out guitars comfortably snug up against synth driven melodies and binding it tightly together is the raw honesty of the lyrics and vocal delivery. Throw in solid beats and a strong DIY ethos and you are coming close to appreciating the spirit and sound of Maiden & Machine.
