The California Blues Machine delivers authentic live blues music with soulful vocals, blistering guitar work, dynamic percussion, walking bass-lines, ripping blues harp, and a cool blues organ vibe.
The band had some lineup change in early 2013. After a long search, we're honored to have an old friend; Michael Cosyn as our new singer on board.
Michael is a fiery guitarist and vocalist in the blues-rock style stationed in the SF bay area. He cut his teeth playing classic blues-rock and heavy metal, and first commanded the stage as the singer and guitarist in the Jimi Hendrix Tribute band "Voodoo Child's Return," which performed live on the air as a finalist in the K FOX "Last Band Standing" contest in 2004.
Driven by his passion for players such as Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi, Tommy Bolin, Gary Moore, Robin Trower, etc, Michael started writing an original blues-rock CD for his band Michael Cosyn Group. He shared vocal duties with ex Rough Cutt and Quiet Riot legend Paul Shortino.
Vocally, Michael adds a punchy mid-range vocal flare, inspired by vocalists such as Jack Bruce, James Dewar, Gary Moore, etc. He is excited to be in the California Blues Machine, where he plans on bringing his energy and element to be a cog in the "Machine."
