Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
I am a member of the human race, still exploring my ways to grow further and reach out to many more dancefloors across the world. I am an artist, presently based in India.
How would you describe your style and genre?
I believe that music connects people globally no matter what genre of music they love,there is nothing like seeing people get up from a table to dance or the expression on their face when they hear a song they love & I also love to educate people on music they have never heard.! I am a mega deep house lover but I sometimes play different genre for special occasions. There's nothing more fun than being out on stage and getting the vibe from the crowd. There's nothing like being on a set where you are there to make other people happy and to make them laugh. That's the best job in the world.!!
Who are your biggest idols ever? Dead or alive, musician or non-musician.
Not sure about who tops the list but I will mention a few names who inspire me, beginning with Thomas Hardy, Damien Rice, Billy Joel or Paolo Nutini. I am a big Solomun fan and I listen to London Grammar and Fink almost everyday. To name some producers I follow Hraach, Ten Walls, Sebastian Tex, my recent favorite is Undercatt.
What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?
I don't make music yet, maybe someday I will or might not but there is so much out there and I want to explore everyday. Also, there is no such thing as the biggest mistake, life's a pretty resilient thing, it turns out.
How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?
We are lucky species to have social media taking over and let us reach out almost anywhere in the world. Just put out the best of what you do up there and you can get anything you dream of as long as you believe in yourself and have the patience.
What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
My biggest challenge right now is to learn play a Piano :p
but the real secret of life is to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.
How do you promote yourself? Do you have any specific promotion tips for other musicians?
We meet again in one year. What has happened?
