Award winner of Classic Rock and Blues radio Wigwam 2022 Born and Brewed are an original duo formed in 2019 in Portishead, UK. Rich (Beardymud) Sidwick and Mike (Slick) Palomares create an infusion of Americana/Bluegrass/country blues with a gritty edge. Previously playing together for 14 years under the guise of Slick and Rich, the duo’s strong links to the South West’s music scene have helped define their sound. In 2019 Rich’s biggest supporter, his father passed away and he used his music as an outlay writing the duo’s first song Papa Moon for him. This was the beginning of Born and Brewed, which reflects Rich’s challenges with mental health and addiction. He hopes that through music he can help and inspire others to heal. They are currently working on their first album Born and Brewed Est, which reflects their life stories in an authentic way through music. Rich’s raspy vocals provide a smoky quality to the music, whilst Mike’s bluesy slide guitar provides an atmospheric backdrop that enhances their journey. Influenced by Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Larkin Poe, The Dead South, Colter Wall and Chris Rea, music continues to unite them to create unique and original songs.
I met the Jamma crew at a gig in Manchester, and after getting to know them was invited to be the regional 'Jambassador' for Essex, UK. As an artist it's been great and they really helped me to push my latest single. As a 'Jambassador; they sent me a ton of free merch and personalised business cards and pay for me to check out gigs in my region to sign up artists and venues! I also was invited to perform on their professionally filmed podcast series, 'The Jamma Show' which was not only great fun but also a great way to get my music out to my fans!
We have recently signed up to Jamma and love that we can have a dedicated page for our band and also individual pages allowing us to advertise ourselves for solo work and showcase our material as a group and as separate band members. It's also great to be able to find potential new band members and stand in DEP musicians as and when we need them

I registered with Jamma before the launch and I was lucky enough to perform at their '331' launch event. Since going live I have used the website to build an artist page and upload all my content as well as connect to find paid gigs! It's super easy to use and they have always been there to support me whenever needed. Not only have I found paid work, but I have also been featured on podcasts and various special marketing projects which have been great for exposure, especially in these uncertain times. Jamma also takes 0% commission on anything I earn through the platform, and it's even free to use right now!
