About Us

We (James and Satvir) have been reporting on our passions online since 2007 (with some great help along the way). Our motive has been to get a closer look at the industries and sub-cultures that we love and to share that experience with the people.

Amplified started as “Piledriver Wrestling”, focusing solely on everyone’s favourite spandex soap opera. A chance to film from the red carpet of a Disney premiere and interview The Rock opened our eyes to a broader spectrum of entertainment that we could report on. Shortly after, “Piledriver Wrestling” became “Piledriver” and music began to take an increasingly big role in our work.

After some high-profile interviews in 2009 (including our first festival visit as members of the press – Sonisphere), it was clear that music was the main industry to focus on. Rock was our thing, putting it on video was our thing – so was a natural step to make.

After two years of rocking the web the current Amplified. you see today was born.
