There is more than one artist with this name:
1) Breadmachine is a mess from Allentown, PA.
2) Breadmachine is led by one of Finland's most recognized trumpet players, Antero Priha.
Priha has been one of Finland's busiest trumpetists for nearly twenty years. He left home at the early age of sixteen to devote his life to his music, and luckily enough he has never had a reason to regret this somewhat radical decision.
In addition to numerous Finnish musicians, Priha has also performed with many international jazz artists, such as Ray Charles, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Carla Bley, Louie Bellson and Georgie Fame, to mention but few.
The musicians in Breadmachine are all among the hardest working men in the modern European music scene.
Breadmachine released its first album, Eternal Friendship, in 1998. Priha's and bassist Ape Anttila's music is an easy blend of many modern influences (hip-hop, soul, jazzbossa, be-bop & lush-loop).
In January 2001, Breadmachine released its second album called Loveship. Like Eternal Friendship, Loveship is a loving blend of various musical influences and rhythms from around the globe. Some of the key tunes on this record are Priha's mellow Mañana and almost devout Prayer. Seppo Kantonen composed a colossal piece called Giant for Loveship.
Breadmachine is currently working on their third album (under the so far unconfirmed title Starship Babies). The new material could be loosely categorised as jazz for generation X; a tasty mix of ultra modern sounscapes, groovy rythms and timeless jazz harmonies.
