1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

I'm from a small city called Katni in Madhya Pradesh. Started my music journey as a drummer in the 9th grade and slowly started learning other instruments as well. And I started singing from the 11th grade and after that, didn't stop.

2. When did you first decide you wanted to pursue music and how did you start?

Came to Mumbai for my college and had a lot of free time so I started going to different music schools and really got into music.

3. Who is your favourite artist and why?

My favourite artist is Me in 5 years and the reason is that I'm making some really good original music right now and I can only imagine what will happen in 5 years.

4. Is format training required or can one train themselves purely on the basis of talent?

One must have a Guru. Without a Guru, you're like a traveller without any directions.

5. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring artists?

The Internet is where you wanna be to get the exposure you are looking for, gone are the days when all an artist could do is to depend on Film Music.

6. Which is your favourite book and why?

Mindfulness in Plain English.
The Secret.
