Born Ready, also known as Brandon Richardson was born Jan 4, 1987 and grew up as an only child for most of his life. With no father figure and a mother with a drug addiction, Ready confided in his grandmother for much of his childhood. She was his pillar and his reason to stay on a positive path. When she passed away prematurely before his first year of high school things took a turn for the worst. "When I lost my grandma it was like I couldn't breathe, to go through something so devastating at that age was almost unbearable. When she died a part of me died too."

With no stability and no support in his corner Ready found harmony in the streets. The harsh realities of the streets prompted Born to explore music. Having been introduced to freestyle rap by two close friends, Greg and Jared Blackwell, Ready found a much needed way to vent. It was at that point he decided music was going to be his life.

After moving to North Carolina in an attempt to pursue an academic and athletic avenue, Ready returned to
Pittsburgh and recorded his first album "Trials and Tribulations". Since then he has been featured on
numerous mixtapes and has even worked with such artists as Project Pat, Roscoe Dash and Trapaholics. While steadily perfecting his craft Born Ready continues to engrave his name in the industry. With an original sound and unique delivery, Born Ready is sure to have a bright future in music.

Melbourne born Singer-Songwriter Chris O’Neill’s love affair with music began at age 5, after his parents overheard him working out the theme to his favourite cartoon on the piano. Fast forward to the present day and Chris is now an established multi-instrumentalist and composer, with a deep passion for storytelling and connecting with others through music.

Chris released his first EP in mid 2010, and was delighted to see it secure a place in the ARIA Top 50 Physical Singles chart for consecutive weeks, peeking at number 5, and in the Jagermeister AIR Charts – Top 20 Singles 100% Indie, peaking at number 12.

Recorded in his Eastern Suburbs home and mixed by U.S. engineer Andy Ellis (R.E.M/Goo Goo Dolls/Gavin Rossdale), the 5 track CD titled “Entr’acte” has been well received by critics, with one reviewer defining it as “a captivating, heartfelt and sincere collection of stories from this young Melbourne musician”.

This positive feedback was reinforced with many of the tracks from “Entr’acte” being selected as grand finalists in a number of national and international songwriting competitions, including the Australian Songwriting Competition, the Expose Yourself Songwriting Competition (USA) and the International Acoustic Music Awards (USA). Spurred on by this success, Chris recorded and released a second EP titled "Fingerprints and Souvenirs" in late 2011, which eventuated into several slots in the esteemed Port Fairy Folk Festival. Since then, Chris has been busy gigging, writing, and sinking teeth (and his compositional skills) into a number of short film and game music projects.

Having supported renowned artists such as Mark Seymour (Hunters and Collectors) and Ian Moss (Cold Chisel), and having taken part in a couple of Matt Corby tours, assembled a backing band of some of Melbourne's hottest up and coming players, and competed against world class songwriters in international competitions all by the age of 23, the future is certainly looking bright for this young musician - and he can't wait to write about it!

Bless was born Byron J. Thomas in Carbondale, Illinois, USA. After moving around with his family for a couple of years, he found a home in Belleville, Illinois. Spending most of his life in the East Saint Louis area, he was exposed to a mixture of different things that shaped his unique character. Bless fell in love with writing in the 5th grade after composing his first rhyme. He began to progress more and more as a writer, while also growing vocally as a singer. By the age of 16, he was producing, recording, mixing, and writing his own music. This would be the reason that Bless would attend The Institute of Production & Recording in Minneapolis to pursue mass musical knowledge. Though he did not graduate from The IPR, he gained valuable information that has contributed to his musical progression. Now on the hunt to grab his dream, Bless says his music is “inspiration for the soul”.
