Machine on a Break is a new heavy-pop project, shedding the light on the darkness inside her mind. She is exploring the catharsis of songwriting throughout the darkest of times and hoping that her stories are helpful to more than just her.
Toowoomba based Pop-Metal artist Machine on a Break creates raw and earnest brand of music that is an artful blend of multiple genres. A delicate bird in a fiery cage, Machine on a Break is equal parts fragile and fierce.

Her music is an anthemic call to people who have been hurt and pushes them through to a better tomorrow.
The determined singer/songwriter has been writing and performing music for many years, playing at The Sydney Fringe Festival, Sofar Sounds Sydney, and the Northern Beaches Music Festival.

“Kindly Step Aside oozes out with a unique style of alt-rock vibes, coming at you with a 90’s style rock aesthetic it flows with crunchy riffs, stadium style drums and a fierce vocal delivery. It has theatrical moments that slow things down and then build back into anthemic territory.” – AAA Backstage
