What is your background? tell us where you grew up and some information about your upbringing/experiences as a youth:
DEF Machine is a unique group consisting of old and new school members. We all grew up in The Motor City, Detroit, Mi. We were brought up on all genres of some of the greatest music of all time ranging from deep Funk, R&B, Rap, Rock and of course. The Motown Sound.
At what moment did you know that music was part of your life and what feelings did you have towards making an active impact with your music?
Music has been in our lives from early ages since learning to play various instruments and getting into bands and having to put a radio down on the floor while each musician learned their parts.
DEF Machine was designed to bring back elements missing from today’s music. We are a rebirth or an explosion of things that made music lovers feel the music they love.
What artists inspired/influences you and if you could collaborate with any artist (alive or passed) who would it be and why?
DEF Machine is inspired by too many artists to name here. We have an appreciation for all their contributions to music and their huge influence on our music. We would gladly collab with the greats ranging from Prince to George Clinton or Michael Jackson to Bruno Mars.
