With a sound coined as "Zeppelin meets Kravitz", MACH22 is on the rise and the time to follow them is now. The songs are simple enough to be catchy for the average listener yet intricate for those who appreciate excellent musicianship.

The band started as the brainchild of Lamont Caldwell as an outlet for his creative genius. Although Lamont is a multi-instrumentalist, it was his chops on the saxophone that landed him a spot touring with Jay-Z as a “Roc Boy” but before that he performed with The Roots and the Dave Mathews Band. In MACH22, Lamont is lead singer who is joined by top-notch musicians who bring the true vision to life: Ty Asoudegan on lead guitar, Sebastian LaBar (son of Guitarist, Jeff LaBar of the band Cinderella) also on lead guitar, Frank Day on bass and Damian MonteCarlo on the Drums round out the solid rhythm section of the band. Within months after the unit was in place, MACH22 came to shine amongst their peers in the vibrant Philly music scene and caught the attention of professionals in the upper echelons of the music industry. MACH22 is more than a band; it’s an experience. MACH22 carries the spirit of raw, animalistic rock with soulful vocals, creating the band’s powerful sound that leaves the listener feeling blown away. Music is in need of a change that is long over due.
