Ruchira Jaitly, senior director, marketing, Social Beverages of PepsiCo India, said: “When the judges heard the variations that SBTYR managed to bring to the table, whether with their vocals or with their guitar and bass, they were truly impressed. This global platform at Music Matters will not only give them an opportunity to perform to an international audience, but also equally for them to learn from some of the biggest music icons in the world.”

The band will be one among the many artistes from the Asian music scene performing at the fifth anniversary of the fest in Singapore. They will also be attending the Music Matters conference where music and media icons from VICE, Dailymotion, MTV, YouTube and other such companies will be speaking.
