Pamela Parker studied opera and commercial music production before establishing herself as a solo performer in the Washington D.C. area. After touring nationally and internationally, she moved to San Francisco in 2007 and released her self-produced debut, Beautiful Day. Parker and her handpicked band completed her second album, Evolutionary Process, while she earned studio time working as an engineer at Hyde Street Studios in 2013. The band’s infectious blend of funk, rock, and soul touched a nerve in Vancouver, British Columbia on the radio station CHLY 101.7FM, where the album debuted at No. 1 and was up for Album of the Year. Fantastic Machine has opened for acts such as Heart and Big Brother & the Holding Company and headlined festivals like the Haight-Ashbury Street Fair, Earth Day SF, and Bay Vibes Summer Fest.
