Overdrive and The Grey Federation have collaborated to form Amplify, an organisation that provides valuable information for bands/musicians/entertainers of all genres regarding the ever changing music industry.

Our mission is to provide a pure source of information that ultimately can assist in keeping real musicians and their music alive. Both Overdrive and The Grey Federation work on a day to day basis with a large professional network of people who are involved in all aspects of the music/entertainment industry and invite these individuals to our events to share and exchange information that can assist musicians/entertainers with clear and concise information to help accelerate their careers in the ever changing music/entertainment industry.

After the cancelled event that was scheduled to take place on March 26th, Overdrive is please to announce that the rescheduled event is now in full swing.
