1) How did you get discovered? 

I don’t know how my discovery process came into being but I think the credit goes to my passion & consistency towards music. I used to have two underground bands from  2005-2007.I played the role of a lead singer & rhythm guitarist for those bands.i used to play in different cafes, schools and colleges to entertain people, spread our name and obviously to polish our skills as i was a new entrant in the music industry. Later, in 2007 I came up with my solo track ‘Chu Loon Mein Aasman’ composed & written by myself. That’s how my career started.

2) What made you pursue you’re passion for Music? 

I think every creative person needs to express him/herself. Some express by painting on a canvas, some by writing poetry on pages but for me music is the optimal solution.

3) What is the inspiration behind you’re new album? 

There is no new album because there isn’t an old one. I have released eight singles till date and in process of recording more. As you asked my inspiration, every song has its own story line, some are motivational, some are based on social issues while some are lyrically funny.  So I’m covering all moods of human life.

3) Which is your next song? 

 My upcoming song is ‘Aaj Kal’ which is a sad romantic melody. Hope people will like it.
