The Tenants were formed by Pete and John after a chance encounter in an East End pub. Working on John's early material forged a strong partnership and the search for a rhythm section began.  Through time the boys auditioned members with little success until Fraser answered an online advert.  Bass player Fraser met with Pete and John in a city rehearsal studio and after playing "Into The Senses" he was sold.  A couple of sessions later he brought Rick along and the line-up was complete.  Making their live debut in 2007 the band have been playing in and around Glasgow's popular music venues such as King Tut's, Barrowlands, The Renfrew Ferry and Nice 'n' Sleazys.  Taking pride in their performances, The Tenants are one of the best live acts around.

Trends and fads come and go, but honest, heartfelt Rock ‘n’ Roll is here to stay, especially if Chicago rockers Vintage Blue have anything to say about it. Described as “poised to become the Windy City’s next great Rock n’ Rollers” by SOCO Magazine, their freshman LP - Strike The Mics, produced by the Grammy-nominated Jamie Candiloro (REM, Ryan Adams) has been added to over 170 radio stations in the USA and Canada, and has been the subject of features on both WXRT in Chicago and WOCM in Ocean City, Maryland as well as a national television placement on WGN TV. Released in February 2012, Strike The Mics was met with even further acclaim, as the band sold out their CD Release show at Subterranean in Chicago and headlined at the Chicago House of Blues.

Since creating the band in 2011, Vintage Blue, which includes Will Crowden (grandson of the founder of Ludwig Drum Company) and songwriters Ryan Tibbs and Ben Bassett, have had the opportunity to support some excellent musical talents, including: Lifehouse, Fitz & The Tantrums, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, The Punch Brothers, Brett Dennen, Local H, Vertical Horizon and 10,000 Maniacs. The band even spent some time touring with Sister Hazel in 2011 and 2012, which further fueled their growth and their desire to reach the masses. What they learned from those bands can be seen in their live performance, with one reviewer saying “they have a lot of fun and it is contagious,” and from another show describing the musicianship as “not only technically proficient … but entertaining.”

Although the band are regulars in the ever-thriving Chicago club scene, selling out shows at the House of Blues, Lincoln Hall, Double Door, Schubas and Subterranean, the band also just completed their first national tour. The band rocked with some great crowds in Nashville, Atlanta, Ocean City, Philadelphia and Cleveland … and that’s only the beginning.

Amycanbe hails from Italy. Originally comprised of Marco and Mattia, they formed in 2002 but actually started as a four-piece band in 2005, after Francesca and Paolo joined.

After their first live performances in clubs, theatres and local bars, Amycanbe recorded a self-produced demo (Yellow Suit - EP) with 5 songs which attracted the attention of critics and attained widespread success. Blow Up Magazine placed Amycanbe in the playlist of the Best Debutant Italian Indie Band of 2005. The same year, Amycanbe opened for Skin, Sophia, The Devastations and Yuppie Flu, and played the Roma Rock Festival.

Their debut album "Being A Grown-Up Sure Is Complicated" was released in October, 2007. It was produced by Mario Thaler, to critical acclaim. This coincided with their first UK tour that saw the band playing in Leeds, Bristol, Oxford and Sheffield, as well as their album launch at 12 Bar in London, radio sessions at the BBC and a 2nd UK tour that saw the band having some highlights in glorious music venues such as The Borderline and Scala in London, Komedia in Brighton, The Croft in Bristol and The Gander in Bournemouth.

Back in Italy... the brilliant international festival called "Assalti Al Cuore" in Rimini wanted Amycanbe for a gig that would be marked as one of the greatest in the band's history. It marked the beginning of a new musical direction for the band and the start of their new project.

After one year of intense and successful gigs around Italy, the EP called "The World Is Round" was finally released on the 25th of May, 2011. Preceded by a new single and video called "Everywhere", it received great feedback, featuring in important blogs and magazines such as ListenBeforeYouBuy, The London Music Blog and Kismet Magazine with 7.1 Million readers worldwide.

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!
