Origin Story

It all started when I was studying animation and making local gig posters for free. I had no money to go study design at Parsons in NYC so I started playing pub gigs at 17 in the hope that I would eventually save enough money to go there. That was bad math. I ended up changing my ambition and fell in love with being a singer/songwriter. I released a number of songs and performed them around India and here I am now : in great need of funding to up my game!

Style

My style of music is very easy listening. It's honest story telling with a very catchy tune - reminiscent of 90s RnB and also modern pop.

New Track produced by Jonathan Anand Wesley

This is a new track that I will be releasing around November 2020 and it is being produced by Jonathan Anand Wesley. I also am having a video produced for this song in which I wish to feature slums from around Hyderabad in an attempt to bring more attention to them. To achieve this perfect product - I will have to invest a sizable sum of money. This is what I am reaching out for help for in terms of funding on Original Dog.

Awesome. I have it.
