Bird Machine comprises three experienced musicians and multi-instrumentalists. Each are skilled across many genres, including rock, pop, R’n’B, funk, soul, jazz, and blues from any decade. They take the stress out of coordinating music for an event by supplying and setting up their own gear, with a PA system sufficiently powerful for most venues. A tight and dynamic unit, Bird Machine are able to deliver the live music experience that best suits your event.
Luke (guitar, vocals), has played guitar most of his life, being inspired from an early age by guitar heroes of the 60s and 70s like Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, and David Gilmore. Jenna (vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboard) was born into a musical family, singing and performing since she was four-years-old and songwriting since she was eight. She’s taken her incredible voice around New Zealand on several tours, and learnt much about singer-songwriter craft from fellow Kiwi Brooke Fraser. Coleman (drums) started playing in bands at a young age around Japan, enjoying commercial success. He takes his cues from punk-rock hero Travis Barker and the original rock drummer, Ringo Starr.
Luke & Jenna are also available as an acoustic duo for smaller and more intimate occasions.

“I was lucky enough to have Bird Machine play at my Wedding. The guests were a mixed group of ages but the band had everyone dancing, foot tapping and singing along. Considering there were only 50 people this was not an easy task. The talent in the band was amazing. Everything flowed freely without hiccups. I would recommend this band of extremely professional artists to anyone considering live entertainment for their wedding.” –
“Bird Machine played at our wedding. We and the guests absolutely loved them! They made it easy for us to pre pick songs that fit the event and captured the theme we were after. Luke and Jenna are extremely talented at their craft. 10/10 from us!”
“I first saw Bird Machine live a few months ago playing at Nivara Lounge and they caught my eye and soul! I honestly fell in love with them. When I fall in love with a song or musician/band, I have to do a cover of their songs. Jenna has an angelic, jaw dropping voice and Luke can shred that guitar and make it sound like a different instrument! Not to mention he can sing too!! Extraordinary musicians!!”
