Welcome to the Well Oiled Machine! Be prepared to be inspired!

Since uniting their efforts in 2020, the members of the group have recorded 18 songs bound for their album. The band has a mix of disabled and fully abled artists. Every instrumentalist in this band is an APRA award winning songwriter (in addition to the hundreds of other awards they have garnered between them). This project is right up there with their most important and satisfying work as they have been so inspired by collaborating with Gerry. The band is comprised of Gerry Smith (songwriting/vocals), Eric McCusker (songwriting hits including Come said the Boy, State of the Heart), Jake Mason (European hit This Girl), Bobby Bright (from Bobby & Laurie) and Jessica Paige (Best Song Composed for Screen nominee and APRA Award winning songwriter).

There is also a network of other disabled artists to bring along for the ride and share their own beautiful music as Support Acts and Headliners.
The Well Oiled Machine members collaborations have yielded so much. Our shared love of music and its uplifting properties, the wish to make a difference to people who have accessibility issues, coupled with our wonderful experience collaborating on this project draw us to spread the magic and let others witness and benefit from its transformational powers.
