1. Miguel Tiongson aka “Miggs”
Miguel was born and raised in the Philippines. Coming from a family with a strong musical background, he started playing guitar at the young age of 12 years old. He then moved to Sydney with his family after he turned 17. On August 2009 he joined a talent competition for the first time and won second place – his confidence grew because of this and it motivated him to do something with his music. So then he started uploading videos in YouTube covering popular songs. He has now uploaded over thirty videos and gained over 3,000 subscribers and 1 million video views! He covers songs from a variety of genres from artists such as John Meyer, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran.

2. Chris Cole
Very few artists can bridge the gap between musical genres and connect with people the world over. Chris Cole is one of those artists. “THE HERO COMPLEX” – Chris’ first all original effort will be hitting the music scene this November and the lead single is called “Daydream”. A minimalistic track that showcases Chris’ airy tone yearning for a lover that for whatever reason can’t be his. Chris describes his album, as “the story of us, a candid account of my own complexes and the roles I’ve played in previous relationships.” Chris’ first single “Daydream” is available now and can be downloaded from his official website.
