Origin Story

I was 12 years old when my middle school music teacher had an American Idol style audition for our class to pick two singers to represent the class at a cultural fest at my school. I didn't really know I could sing before that, but everyone had to audition and I kept getting through each round. I actually made it to the two people representing the class but I was pretty bad. The good part was that I got to join the choir at school and the sound of harmony gave me goosebumps. I loved every moment Read more...

I was 12 years old when my middle school music teacher had an American Idol style audition for our class to pick two singers to represent the class at a cultural fest at my school. I didn't really know I could sing before that, but everyone had to audition and I kept getting through each round. I actually made it to the two people representing the class but I was pretty bad. The good part was that I got to join the choir at school and the sound of harmony gave me goosebumps. I loved every moment of singing in the choir and how it made me feel. Soon I started listening to a lot of music (mostly Nu Metal and Nickelback) and I was deeply influenced by that too. I would find other kids that played instruments and ask them to learn these songs that I wanted to sing, and then we would play them. Then I started writing my own songs and formed a band. We were very bad, but very excited - the process of creating and writing your own music was and is the biggest high to me. I was then asked to sing for a band called Allegro Fudge, which was where I got my start at doing music professionally.

Ambitions

I want to write music that feels good to me and play it for as many people as I can. That's it. Music that either moves people, or makes people move.

Challenges

So many. When I was in India, it was hard to see any viable path for a musician. My family at the same time didn't want any of it and made me agree to get an engineering degree and then do what I wanted, which I did. Although I did more music than engineering at the time. But seeing and formulating vision for yourself and career is hard and rare because there isn't too much of that happening on the indie music front.

So many. When I was in India, it was hard to see any viable path for a musician. My family at the same time didn't want any of it and made me agree to get an engineering degree and then do what I wanted, which I did. Although I did more music than engineering at the time. But seeing and formulating vision for yourself and career is hard and rare because there isn't too much of that happening on the indie music front. When I moved to Los Angeles to study and pursue music, that was a whole other ball game. Suddenly, everyone around me was a musician that was WAY more talented and skilled than I was and were intent and obsessed with their careers. Even though LA is a "big pond", there are so many fish in the sea, and it really pushes you to be better which is what I liked about. But I was and still am quite disillusioned about the music business side of it - it's just a cold game. Not the greatest for an artist that wants to write and create,

Influences

Good songwriting, personal relationships and just inspiring things around me - nature, good movies or TV shows or people.

Style

Acoustic pop to put it broadly, but it does have elements of indie rock and singer-songwriter.

Performance Atmosphere

Intimate and uplifiting. I want my live performances to be a hug and try to design them to be that way.
