ESE PETERS: Ese has a knack for making beautiful music. A self-taught guitar player, He started out as a solo performer after graduating from the university in 2008 the Alternative Rock/Soul genre. A young man who sings from his heart, Ese carefully crafts his songs which come from his experiences and a wealth of influences, citing John Mayer as a  major reason why he decided to pursue music as a career, Ese  puts an interesting spin on guitar-driven pop music.
ISEBIAMA: A product of the MUSON Diploma School of Music, ISEBIAMA is a sensational singer, songwriter, guitarist whose love and passion for music has taken him through phases most focused and accomplished musicians pass through. From the basic music foundation, to sight reading & writing his music, to understanding the connection that should exist between different instruments and performers in small ensembles, group performances and chamber groups. Isebiama is indeed a musician of purpose; his genre of music is deeply rooted with originality and cultural credibility in Soul and World Music. Though born and bred in Lagos, Isebiama hails from Okrika in Rivers State. His songs which are written & delivered in English, Yoruba, Okrika and Pidgin English, are an expression of his experiences and the stuff that goes on in his heart.  His dynamic play of the guitar with speed, passion, mental strength, balance and panache, and his remarkable vocal intonation through his mid to high notes registration are assets to be reckoned with. ISEBIAMA is the new sound of music.
