Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
Thank you for having me on your music blog! I must say that I’m quite excited to be here.
Q: How did you come into music industry?
While in college, I was an integral part of the Silent Thunder Band. We released our first studio based spiritual based acapella album which was named Sounds of Reverence in 2002. That was the beginning of my journey as a vocal artist. I released my first solo acapella spiritual chants album in 2015.
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
I’ve been inspired by both Eastern and Western musical and vocal influences over time such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Ahmad bin Ali Al-Ajmi, Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Fairuz etc.
Q: What is the name of your debut song?
My debut song is called “So Many Divisions” (Ya Rahman). The purpose of this song and music video is to address issues which no one may speak but resonates in everyone’s hearts. We are all humans first prior to being indoctrinated into any type of faith, sect or religion.
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
My musical journey started quite young. I am lucky to come from a musical family. My uncle was a stage singer and performer and my brothers also have an keen interest in singing and performing. Hearing music around my house and family and being exposed to the joy of music from an early age made it easy and natural to love and learn music.
At home, my brothers and I had an incredible collection of songs. When I was 12 or 13 years old, I was fascinated by bollywood singers. I would try to sing like them and emulate them. Later on I learned about other singers and styles of singing and incorporated them into my style. When I was in college I learned classical islamic quranic chanting which helped to diversify my singing style and develop my voice.
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
I would say God. He has been the Greatest Support and Help throughout my journey.
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
I’ve received advice from individuals in the industry, such as recording engineers, lyricists, composers and videographers. As you know, creating a song involves a lot of team work.
Q: What do you do now a days?
Apart from composing, singing and performing, I currently work as a physician trained the field of Internal Medicine in a hospital based environment. I’m also constantly in the process of learning new things to evolve myself.
Q: Let us know something about your future projects
I just had a new release named “Mere Khuda” on my Youtube channel. It’s a song devoted to God and His Blessings. I’ve have been privileged to work with classically trained and renowned artist Hishaam Faisal Siddique. My future projects involve more spiritual songs, chants as well songs of love.
Q: What is your message to your fans?
I just want to give a big shout out to all the fans out there who have followed my work up until now. You all are amazing people! I will continue work hard and give my fans fresh and unheard music that resonates with them.
Q: Any message for new artist?
Keep doing what you do! It’s not about fame or money. The true essence of music lies in its ability to enhance and influence other people’s lives in a positive way. If you love what you do and share it with others, you can create a circle of inspiration that positively affects everyone around you.
