A fresh breath to the musical air, Sam and Nate have had melody embedded in their lives since birth. With a background in piano, guitar, bass and drums, Sam & Nate have cultivated an understanding musically that has no further explanation than brotherhood. Samuel leads the two in melody with Nate’s purposeful unique rap style that demands attention. 2008 led them to winning multiple talent competitions, most notably AMTC. In 2009, the two found ultimate focus, seeking to take their musical endeavors to the next level. They began writing, rehearsing and performing on stages. Their first recording took place in a closet; the second was done in Dallas, Texas with acclaimed record producer Geoff Rockwell.

The summer of 2011 brought their musical talents to their “Camplified Tour” on the East Coast performing before thousands of screaming campers. They shared the stage with Savvy, who recently were signed to Cash Money Records label. Sam & Nate continue to perform as often as possible, and in December were invited to Disney’s Celebration City, to perform at “Celebration of Voices” sharing their talent with everyone in the snow covered streets. They have been working and recording in Atlanta, Georgia with John Eley.

Born Ready

Listen to "SRL Networks Presents Born Ready" on R'dio, Deezer and Spotify.

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.

Chris O'Neill

Listen to "SRL Networks Presents Chris O'Neill" on R'dio, Deezer and Spotify.

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!

Competing in Bodog’s Battle of the Bands, Ian & The Dream were named “Best MilwaukeeBand”, landing them performances in front of larger crowds such as the Metro and House
of Blues in Chicago. Ian Ash won the title “Top Singer” at Waukesha County Fair, earning
him an opening performance with the Beach Boys. When Grammy award-winning Beach Boy

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.
