RNB Swagger down under

We’ve been finding patterns in the styles of music when it comes to reverb nation.  Alot of metal bands coming out of Adelaide, Rock and Country in Perth and Darwin, Sydney and Melbourne with indie rock and pop while Queenslanders have a lot of really good RNB, Hip Hop rappers and groovers.  Here’s just some of the few across the country we’ve found:

Von Daddy – Melbourne, VIC

Von Voddy sure knows about work, rest, and too much play. The latter drives his soul, while the former is that which enjoyably or not, must always come first. T his is an inspired by grandeur, 20 something story teller with a severe weakness for the weekend mania, yet an unsettled desire to shape his own fate through hustle, beats and flow.

Luke Mansini – Brisbane, QLD

His music has stemmed from a keen ear and natural instinct, interpretation of lyric and emotion through soul.  A combination of unique, contemporary pop & soulful, melodic, acoustic influences.

Optamus – Perth, WA
