Top bands kick off Smart Music Live starting July 14

To celebrate and break even more barriers when it comes to going digital, Smart Communications presents to its subscribers a free concert on July 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum featuring some of the country’s most exciting artists.

Dubbed as Smart Music Live, the concert features Crwn, Up Dharma Down, Nathan Sykes, Autotelic, Aegis and Ely Buendia.

“Smart Music Live is just the tip of the iceberg because there’s an entire roster of international acts to experience in the coming months if you’re a Smart subscriber. This July 14 music fusion signals a series of live concerts,’’ said Kat Luna-Abelarde, FVP and Head of Wireless Consumer Operations for Smart.

Crwn is a music producer, composer and beatmaker who has collaborated with Filipino artists like singer Jess Connelly. On the other hand, Up Dharma Down is a Filipino band which was featured by Time magazine in 2007.

Nathan Sykes may be known for being part of the British boyband The Wanted but he is now a solo artist and songwriter with a top single “Kiss Me Quick” to his credit while Autotelic is a homegrown Filipino group popular for its dance rock tunes.

Who doesn’t know Aegis and Ely Buendia? Aegis, with sisters Juliet and Mercy on vocals, has inspired the hit musical Rak of Aegis. The group’s songs, including “Halik,” “Luha” and “Basang Basa Sa Ulan,” are Filipino sentimental favorites. Ely Buendia, formerly lead vocalist of the band Eraserheads, is considered one of the most prolific songwriters of his generation.
