Their mission: Make music rooted to the blues canon, but dodge becoming a museum piece by taking up the flag of the modern blues innovators — Taj Mahal, Nina Simone, Dr. John; artists who used their deep-seeded knowledge of the genre to push it into the future. Needless to say, the Great American Music Machine is not afraid of its influences.

Mike Mattison and Paul Olsen are Scrapomatic, also known to their diehard fans as “The Great American Music Machine.” The duo pour their influences in the top and out come perfectly calibrated Americana gems. “…the perfect blues appetizer.” -Boston Herald (Top Ten “Hidden Pearl” Releases of the Year)”…reaffirms that good music still has the power to feed the soul.”

Guitarist Paul Olsen and vocalist Mike Mattison met in Minneapolis in the 1990’s. They bonded over a love for down-home, authentic blues and dubbed themselves Scrapomatic. Their third album, Sidewalk Caesars, features 11 songs co-written by the duo; the disc melds the pair’s classic blues sound with a contemporary perspective. Mattison’s acrobatic vocals showcase his vast range, as he shows off a deep growl and a ringing falsetto, while Olsen’s utilitarian guitar work maintains the soul-blues vibe.
