Biography

Named after famed futurist/novelist Ray Kurzweil's book The Age of the Spiritual Machines, The Spiritual Machines is Evan Frankfort (all instruments) and James Grundler (vocals). The band's first album Volunteer, is a science fiction concept album, one that can only be described as epic – an original headphone trip exploring the concept of living outside of one's body. It asks the question: if we are able to upload our brains so that our essence continues on after our body gives out, what would happen to our minds?

A music engineer and sound designer practically since birth, Evan Frankfort was tweaking knobs since the age of 5. He alternated between playing in bands and working behind the scenes both as a songwriter, with artists including Liz Phair and Plain White T's, and and as a film and television composer. Frankfort is a guitarist and keyboard player for numerous artists, has toured with The Wallflowers and The Jayhawks and most recently co-founding the band Les Friction.

As a composer, Frankfort has over 1000 episodes of TV and a dozen films under his belt. He is an Emmy® Award-winning film and television composer on such shows as THE 100, SUPER FUN NIGHT, 90210 and the upcoming film THE GHOST AND THE WHALE.

Influenced by the work of Kurzweil – Frankfort began writing songs to create the new millennium version of a concept album. The music in his head seemed un-singable , that was until a drummer-friend introduced him to vocalist James Grundler. Grundler, who has performed in such bands as Paloalto and Golden State, sang each song with unbelievable force and range, and the two instantly joined forces to form The Spiritual Machines.

Never afraid to 'take it to 11' The Spiritual Machines combines a traditional rock line-up with orchestra, choir and instruments invented by Frankfort. Sit back, turn it up to 11, and Volunteer to upload The Spiritual Machines into your brain!
