“I want to bring back the type of rock and roll that makes you shake your fists in the air. The rock that raised me, saved me, and will eventually kill me.” -Michael Carter
Dirty Automatic was formed by songwriter/guitarist Michael Carter in the winter of 2011. After wrapping up his touring engagement with Collective Soul, Mike began a quest to bring his personal vision and voice to life. His journey eventually led to the discovery of guitarist Mark Pennington, drummer Krishna Achath, and bassist Christina (Burly) Shore. With nods to southern, classic, and panty dropping rock and roll, Dirty Automatics riff driven music and resonant lyrics are brought to life by their intoxicating stage presence.
