hirling melodies, distorted vocals, enchanting rhythms, and lots of noise. Each member of Traveling Sound Machine comes from many different musical backgrounds, but we learned to mix our styles in a way that is unique.
RFT Music Awards 2015- Best New Band
“This is a rock band at heart, using conventional structures and sequences to create tension and release. But creative instrumentation- that, crucially, is organically integrated into these songs- gives the band something extra.”
-Christian Schaeffer/Riverfront Times
"The music comes across in a very visual way, with the lo-fi hiss of the cassette adding to the mystique as Lickenbrock flickers between baring his soul and hiding his thoughts in the wooded mazes of his mind.”
-Dan Wright/Eleven Magazine
"With a tight and precise rhythm section in Dave Anson on bass and Steve Larson on drums, and the lead guitar work of Josh Grogan, one hopes that Traveling Sound Machine will be along for the long haul, because they definitely got the goods.”
