What do you get when you put 2 mighty titans of the music industry together??….you get some able machines….that’s what you get. Los Angeles songwriter Tay Coliee and acclaimed producer songwriter Linus Dotson have worked with artists ranging from Ariana Grande to Charlatans UK to 5 Seconds of Summer and they are now putting their heart and soul into their own project.
able machines –
Los Angeles electro-pop duo able machines burst onto the music scene in 2019 with their first single “Secrets and Lies”, setting the blueprint of their unique sound — coupling (often) dark lyrical imagery with concise pop hooks and melodies over electronic soundscapes. 2021 saw the release of their dynamic debut album “Pathological”, further cementing the foundation for their sonic style.
able machines started when singer Tay Côlieé was perusing Craigslist in search of musical gear and stumbled upon a “wanted” ad posted by producer Linus Dotson. Upon meeting they quickly discovered they had both been floating in the same musical circles. Linus (professionally known as Linus Of Hollywood) has made a name as a diverse songwriter and producer, working with the likes of The Charlatans UK, Bowling For Soup, Diddy, Cheap Trick and Smashing Pumpkins. He’s also a member of Santa Barbara pop/punk legends Nerf Herder (best known for writing the “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” theme song). Tay got her start acting as a teenager and transitioned into music as a ghost writer for Capitol Records, co-writing hits for other artists such as Ariana Grande and Camilla Cabello.
2023 is proving to be an exciting year for the duo, with a successful Japanese mini-tour completed and the impending release of their second album “Digital Precision” due out in September.
