I am a composer/producer/guitar player based in India. I make music for films and advertising to make my rent and daily bread and all that comes with it. However this page is to support my passion projects which are at the core of what I am. My projects are all united with the same goal - redefining mainstream. India has a huge population across different spheres of existence and at most times, quality is compromised for spoon feeding and instant flattery owing to the demands of our entertainment industry and largely gullible audience. This does not mean that there is no hope for depth and caliber. Having worked/performed for 12+ years in the commercial and independent music industry in India and having interacted with artistes and executives from the classical, folk, indie, bollywood and other zones, I have realised that there is always scope to redefine mainstream and take value to the listeners. Only thing is, that it takes a lot of sticking out for one's vision, which is why I have created this Patreon page for people who share some kind of a sentiment towards my vision.
