Brian Nsamba or Silver-Straw was born in Uganda and moved to Sweden with his family when he was nine years old. He started making music with his older brother Cyrus (Migarous) at the age of thirteen. And their group Racomstarz ended up on the charts in Uganda. When the group decided to take a break Silver-Straw could fully express what he wanted to say with his music. After four years in the studio “UG-RAS Sound” was born. It’s a blend of all the music that he’s been influenced by through his life, from Ugandan music “kadongo kamu” to reggae and house music. The album was released in early 2011 as a free download and is also available on Spotify. It was promoted in both Sweden and Uganda. The video to his first single from the album “Life Goes On” was shot in Kampala, Uganda.
Silver-Straw writes and produces his own music. He also produces other Swedish artists. All his music is released through his label Ug-RAS Sound.
Silver-Straw is currently working on his next studio album set to be released when perfected.
