BluesMates consists of Novan Hardison and Rio Fredic. These two guys formed the band 8 years ago and managed to be among the winners in one of the best national contests, Rising Star Indonesia, in 2014. The band also successfully delivers blues as a genre of music to the audience with various social backgrounds. This is achieved by tackling dozens of challenges that requires a great music arrangement skill. The panelist of the contest just got no other choice other than voting for YES.

The band is based in Surabaya. Now, BluesMates has become well-known not only in their hometown, but also many other cities in Indonesia.
