What’s life without great headphones and greater music? Junkyard Groove rocker Ameeth Thomas picks indie artists who are breaking loose

 

Wacx
Jitesh plays for this band as well. The guitarist, Vijay Krishnan, is one of the best rock and roll guitarists I’ve worked with. A young band with experienced musicians is a good combination to have. The reception to their debut act a few months ago is enough to say that people would only want more of them

 

Stevie and the Band
They are an up and coming band that play really good covers. And they are fun to watch. They just need to write more and play as many gigs as they can to keep their momentum going in the New Year too

 

RJD
Ritesh Dharmaraj, the frontman is the youngest in a family of musicians. Both Ritesh and his brother Jitesh Dharmaraj, a badass bass guitarist, play for my band. I knew Ritesh could play drums, but even that surprised us initially. When we knew he could play the guitar, write songs and sing that well, it surprised us even more. It’s easy to like them. He’s got some great energy and will do well this year

Roshni Sharon
She’s a killer vocalist who balances pop gigs at corporate shows and Western classical at MMA events across the country and as far as Vienna and Rome. She was also ranked the first in the country in the LTCL exam. Whatte voice!

 

Anisha Chandy
She is one of the best vocalists I know. A soprano vocalist, she has done her share of western classical concerts across the country. She also happens to be one of the top scorers in LTCL

 

Ameeth Thomas

Singer, songwriter, mixer, sound engineer and producer, Ameeth Thomas is the lead vocalist of Chennai-based band Junkyard Groove. The band has played at some of the biggest festivals and opened for bands like Iron Maiden, Megadeth, The Prodigy, Machine Head, Mr Big and more
