2.Matt Bednarsky (US)
Put a guitar in his hands and give him an atmosphere in which to sing and you’ll soon realize that Matt brings something fresh and exciting to music. Browse his YouTube channel with over 200 covers and originals and nearly 2 million video views and you’ll get an idea of his talent, prolificness and diversity. He began violin at the age of 4, guitar at age 8, and started singing probably not long after he could make farm animal noises. After studying abroad in Italy, graduating from NYU, and living at an orphanage in Trujillo, Peru for eight months, Matt’s musical roots sprouted one step further and he recorded his debut EP entitled Ready. With two songs in English, one in Portuguese and two in Spanish, this was the beginning of a tenacious recording drive. In January of 2012 he flew down to Tennessee and worked on his follow-up album alongside producers Dave Flint and John Griffin. Crafted as a collection of four lyrically rich and musically layered tracks, his sophomore EP entitled Happy Go Lucky was released on May 1st and reached #8 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts, gracing the listings with the likes of Norah Jones, James Taylor and Carole King. Having spent the majority of 2012 based in New York City, he made the move to Nashville for 2013 to dive into its Music City’s vibrant scene. His unique style draws influence from a variety of genres including pop/rock, folk, blues, jazz and latino and is characterized by poignant, thoughtful lyrics and soothing yet powerful vocals. He recently released a new acoustic demo album entitled Fragments and Glimpses. For a free download, visitwww.noisetrade.com/mattcb273

Queens Artist Slimchance has defied many odds in his road to success. The upcoming rapping sensation has so far garnered over 40,000 mix tape downloads, has released a published book, has secured an inked beverage agreement and has also been recognized for donating thousands to charity – the young mogul made headline news for this chivalrous act and he was even featured in several newspapers and magazines including the New York City radio.
