about

Pianist and multi-media artist Jess Rowland becomes singer/songwriter for The Problem with the Soda Machine, a collection of songs and improvisations based entirely on work emails about a vending machine in the company break room. All the lyrics are lifted from real-life confidential emails to human resources in regard to a company dispute about what to stock in the machine, or whether or not to keep the machine at all. In effect, the album represents an explosive psychodrama of unfolding human passion in the modern cubicle world. Interspersed between the songs are crunchalicious free-jazz explorations of unwrapping consumer items and popping bags of processed chips.
The Problem with the Soda Machine is the problem we all confront, every day and in every way - it is a universal human story, and a window into the deepest reaches of our psyches. This collection features Jess Rowland with an assortment of special guest musicians.
