Origin Story

For as long as I can remember, music has been an integral part of my life.

For as long as I can remember, music has been an integral part of my life. I grew up listening to my fathers prized cassette collection of western pop music from the 80s and 90s and heavy doses of MTv in the early 2000s. "After high school, I went to Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh to study Metallurgy. It wasn't long untill a bunch of us musicians got together and started a rock band" explains Semwal. "We were very bad. But it was a great learning experience for me cause for the first time in my life I understood how it feels to be with a set of people and make music. I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life." I took a leap of faith in 2019 and quit a high paying corporate job. Since then I've been playing shows across the country and putting up some cover videos on YouTube. I released my debut EP, "Elephant in the Room" in December 2020.

I love creating an atmosphere of love and warmth at my gigs. I love it when the listeners leave everything and just get lost in the music. It's my top most priority to always create a magical vibe that pulls everyone in.

Achievements

The biggest achievement for me is the fact that I'm a self taught musician. I've taught myself to be a better guitarist, pianist, songwriter and music producer through the years. It's an ongoing process :)
