One of the most influential bands in the Canterbury scene. Soft Machine started out with psychedelic music in the sixties and developed through progressive rock onto its own fusion style. Their new album Other Doors will be released in June 2023.
Their powerful prog jazz fusion still sounds unique and contemporary. Their inventiveness and creativity have inspired generations of musicians.
After a number of line-up changes, the band now consists of:
John Etheridge – guitar
Theo Travis - saxophones, flute, keyboards
Fred Thelonious Baker – bass
Asaf Sirkis - drums
Prog Magazine about Soft Machine: ‘No band of this vintage have any right to still sound so fearless and ferocious.’
