Go into detail on why you decide to choose music as a career.

I’ve been on stage performing since I was 6 years old so music has always been a part of me. What really inspired me to purse this as a career was when I attended my first stadium concert (believe it or not!) Hilary Duff! Seeing an artist on stage performing on stage with her own music while everyone sang it back to her was such an eye opening moment for me. I thought to myself “I want to do that!”. The feeling of bringing happiness and jot through work you create is the ultimate definition of success to me. I realized I could use the skills and artistic abilities I had to create a feeling and an experience for others.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans concerning your music.

I have some awesome fans that have been with me since the day I release my first song and get just as excited as I do when I share my successes, releases and videos!

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

Today, I feel it is vital to leverage your social networking because as much you like to create and write music; you essentially want as many people to hear your work and hopefully follow your career as it unfolds. With social networking, artists have the ability to reach people around the globe from a click of a button. The power to do that has given artists, especially indie artists, a chance to build their platform and attain opportunities that would never have been possible before.

Brief us about the recording of this song.

“Blanket” was the fastest song I wrote! Essentially I had the melody for the chorus though of the concept of using a blanket. I wanted to use it as an analogy of being close to someone you love. The producers and I knew that it was going to be an upbeat and bright song compared to the tracks I had been working on. We were gaining some inspiration from 80’s pop/rock vibes like Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl”. The song was deserving of something simple with a strong melody. I think nowadays everyone wants to create unique genre blending tracks (I do too) but this song was really just back to the basics which we liked. Out of all the other tracks I recorded, this one had the most momentum in the studio and was quick to create because we knew what we wanted. Minimal, fun and catchy.

Tell us the story behind the song.

Everyone asks me if this song is about a “guy” in my life, but yes it is inspired by the feeling of being crazy in love with someone. Especially at the start of that relationship, you become so love-struck; you just want to be around that person all the time. In the song I refer to feeling like “a child”, because at this stage of the relationship you are innocent, crazed and almost childlike in nature. You’re excited about this new feeling and super playful!

Tell us how long it takes to finish a song from the start.

Each song is so different. This song took about a week in total (excluding mastering etc.) in the studio. For other songs, I find that we spend A LOT of time on experimenting with sounds and trying to find the right character and vibe for the song. We take breaks from the song like maybe even for a week and come back to it. It helps that way because we all come back to the studio with an even better idea!

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

Thank god for the iPhone voice recorder! That app is my life. Anytime I generally thing of a melody or a phrasing, I record it immediately. For my most recent project that I recorded, I found that I developed melody and then wrote lyrics. Sometimes, my producer would send me an instrumental that has a certain vibe or feel, and I just write melodies and lyrics over it. I love writing with other people because other writers have their own structure or ideas. That is always fascinating and it challenges me to approach a song from a different angle!

Discuss music generally in full details.

Music is an experience for me. Haha I don’t know how to answer that but it makes me a happier person. I have a talent in creating music and singing. It helps an artist relate to other people and their situations. Also to be able to make music to help people feel what I feel in music is my goal in life. And last, but certainly not least: I LOVE MUSIC!

 

Music carries its own voice and it speaks to people in many different ways. It sees no gender, walk of life, religion or culture in a world where people convince themselves that they all need to be divided. Without music, life would be missing an important voice. One that is always there when we need and will never go away.

State your five favourite genres of music with reasons.

Hip hop- Of course there are many sub genres in hip hop but I really love the new wave artists that come out with amazing beats and well written verses. When I listen to hip hop, I feel very strong and powerful and ready to take on the world. My favorite artists at the moment are Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, Drake and NF.

 

R&B- This genre has really grown into something else today. There is really no one “sound” for R&B now. I love this genre because I always hear something new and fresh vocally and in the production too. SZA, Khalid and Jorja Smith are a few of my faves right now.

 

 

Pop- Of course everyone loves pop music! Again it is a genre that includes a LARGE pool of sub genres. I think I love Pop songs because anytime you hear a good song, you know that a huge amount of planning, work and marketing has gone into it. I tend to have a huge respect for that, even when I hear the song on the radio a billion times haha.

 

 

EDM- My first time writing songs for someone else was for a DJ group called Get Recked. I wrote top lines and melodies for their songs and enjoyed it very much. EDM is very misunderstood because to many people, it is not “real music”. There are many/producers that that create anthems that make thousands of people in one room jump up and down. There are no boundaries in EDM music and you can hear it in many tracks. It’s so refreshing, experimental and as a songwriter, it’s super fun to listen to. I have gone to my fair share of raves and it is more of an experience than anything else which is why it is still enjoyed by so many today. My goal is to collaborate with more DJ’s and write for them. My favorites right now are Major Lazer, Armin Van Buren, Zedd and Odesza.

 

 

 

Indie- I LOVE finding new artists. When I’m on Spotify or apple music, I will always play a random indie playlist because I have discovered so many great artists. Some of the artists that I “discovered” went on to become so huge (I may just have a good ear for good songs hehe). I remember when I heard Tove Lo’s first single and decided to cover “Habits” at a show. People didn’t know what to make of it but I literally thought it was such a cool song. 4 months later, it blew up and wouldn’t stop playing on the radio! I

Discuss your rehearsal.

Depending on the type of show and venue, my band consists of 4 players, including bass, guitar, drums, and keys. We play around with some tracks and effects to make sure we stay true to my original songs. If we have a show coming up, we try to get in at least 3 times for a couple of hours.

State your favorite musical instruments.

My favorite instruments would be the guitar and piano. I guess I am bias because those are the only 2 instruments I play and those instruments are my go to for songwriting! My other favorite instrument is cello! I love watching people play it and it’s so beautiful. I am currently learning sitar. It is a South Asian string instrument which is used in Indian classical music. It keeps me grounded to my cultural heritage and that is really important to me.

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

When I play live, there is so much positive energy. I don’t want to take the credit for all that because I usually feed off the energy my fans give me and so I owe it to them. When they know the words, it is such an amazing feeling and it gets me more emotionally charged up!

Discuss your personality in full details.

I would say that I am all around a friendly and open minded individual. I am not so outgoing that I would go into a party and start talking to every stranger in the room, but once I feel out the environment and the people, I am super comfortable and personable. My personality has changed while I’ve been in this industry. Growing up, I was always timid and self-conscious about what other people would think about me. Being in this industry, I have learned that you can’t be a people pleaser. When you want something done, you need to be direct and straightforward. I do value the best interest of everyone. At the same time, when I am personally investing my time and money and passion, I’m way more unapologetic about how “annoying” or how “blunt” I am.

I don’t know if I would classify myself as an extrovert or introvert. There are days where all I want to do is be around people because to me socializing is exhilarating and it’s so great to meet new people and learn about others. There are also days where I like to walk to my own beat and make sure that I am taking care of myself mentally and physically. It’s really a mix!

Tell us about your musical background.

I started formal vocal training at age 6. At the same time I started piano but I didn’t like my teacher which made me resent piano. That is the biggest regret I live with, knowing I could have been a piano prodigy if I kept playing! I was heavily involved in performing arts like dancing, musical theatre and acting from a younger age too. At 14, I picked up an interest in guitar and started guitar training but quit after a couple years. Since then I have been taught by friends and taught myself how to play. Same thing with piano. For the past 4 years I have been playing sitar which carries some similarities as a guitar, but Indian classical music is a whole new realm of training. Being raised in an Indian household, Bollywood music was very present in my childhood. Even today, I can sing in Hindi and Punjabi and actually gain a lot of influence from that style of music when I write songs.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

A few years ago, I was asked to perform main stage at the Official CityTV New Year’s Eve Bash for Edmonton. It was such an awesome show. It was the largest audience I have ever played to date. So many new fans and opportunities came out of that! My goal is to hopefully play to an even larger audience in the future.

Tell us the good and bad side of mankind you know.

The good side of mankind is that we all believe in love, in some form or another. The bad side of mankind is that we choose not to accept how similar we all really are.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

My artist name is my real name. I have gone back and forth on changing it because that is what many artists are doing right now. So far, this name represents who I am at this point in time. I don’t want to live up to certain type of name because it’ll limit the development of my image and sound in my music career. Who knows? I may change it in the future!

.

State the title of the album and the reason for picking the title.

The title of the EP is called “Journey to the Sun”. It is inspired from the single on the EP with the same title. The concept is inspired by where I am at this very moment. Its carries a heavy meaning of being fearless, and trusting yourself regardless of how many failures you will face. The “journey” is where a lot of people are at, at least at my age; taking it day by day and working towards goals and facing defeat sometimes. The “sun” represents the place you want to get to or the “light at the end of the tunnel” (not in a sinister way). It’s the moment where you feel content with whom and where you are at that point in your life. I am on this journey right now.
