Ego Mechanics is a two-piece rock duo hailing from Chicago. Using a combination of melody and raw power, they craft songs that call back to the glory days of instrument-based DIY musicianship.
Ego Mechanics was founded by guitarist/vocalist, Seth Arp, and drummer, Jonathan Ross. Up until Ego Mechanics, Seth had been performing under various band names - most notably, Seth Arp and the Hands. In 2015, Seth moved from his home state of Wisconsin to Chicago to pursue his music career further. Seth found Ross via a Craigslist ad and the rest, as they say, is history. Eventually, Arp and Ross decided to drop the Seth Arp and the Hands moniker and became Ego Mechanics.
Ego Mechanics released their debut EP “Wreck” in October of 2016, and in December of 2017, they released a single "Burnt Orange". They’re currently working on a follow up record with Grammy-winning engineer, Chris Steinmetz.
