Purpose

My music’s single most important aim is to make you feel what I felt while I conceived the song. Feelings lie deep down inside, they need to be aroused. To be experienced. You can go to magical places deep inside that you have never seen, you can be whatever you want, you can live forever. The aim of all music is to express and if you could feel what I feel, I would have succeeded.

Training

I write, conceive, arrange, play instruments, record and sing on all my tracks (unless otherwise stated). My primary instruments of expertise are the Guitar and the Piano. In fact, I have been playing the guitar for over 8 years now. I have had 3 years of training on the Classical Guitar and Western Classical Music from the Delhi School of Music and YMCA. I have also given Grade 7 examinations of Trinity College London and have performed at various occasions on stage. I have also spent a year training my voice in the Indian Classical Style under Dhanprakash Guruji of Meerut Gharana.

Expression

I usually write my songs in Hindi and Urdu although there are a few in English as well. I like writing on the truth behind the scenes. Mostly my lyrics are motivated by Life, Politics, Money, Sex, Addiction, Adolescent Disenchantment i.e the things that we experience every day but never like to discuss. On my style of Music, I can state my influences as Rock, 80s Pop, Indian Classical etc. The Result however, belongs to a genre yet to be decided...hmmm?

Equipment

I use Fender Stratosaster, Fender Jumbo Acoustic, Comet Classical Guitar, Ibanez Bass, Roland GT-8 plugged thru GR-20 Midi Processor for Effects, Stranger Dual Amp, Baldwin J.C.Fischer Grand Piano, Maudio Keystudio 49i, Rode NT-3 Mic, Garageband+ Fruity Loops+Logic Pro for MIDI/Multitracking.

My first album is going to be launched soon and here I have put up some of the preview unrecorded clips from the album (as well as some others) for your comments. Please do Email me on the same.
