When was the first time you realized you would want to take music and entertainment as a professional career? Did you have any particular moment that made you decide so or was it always the case?
I first learnt music when I was 10 years old. I learnt piano and guitar and also played keyboard in school morning assembly. In college, when I was studying business, I saw that one can reach millions through YouTube so I decided to give it a shot and grab the opportunity. After starting my YouTube Channel and posting a few videos, iIsaw the numbers and comments grow and I knew that this is what I want to do.
Who are some of the musicians and people you have listened and looked upto while growing up?
Back in the days, I used to listen to Green Day, ColdPlay, Adam Lavine, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars. I was a vocalist in a band which I started with my friend in college and we used to do alot of GreenDay and ColdPlay songs.
Some time back, you actually hosted an ‘E Sangeet’ ceremony for a Dubai couple amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Now that’s almost an unheard concept. How did you end up doing that successfully?
After Covid hit, I already had 3 International gigs which had to be cancelled. Entertainment also had to find another way and being a tech savvy guy, iI knew what to do. A Dubai based couple wanted Live entertainment for their E-Sangeet. Using professional mics and DSLRs for streaming High Quality Live Video directly to attendees sitting across globe, we did a Video Concert with live interaction which went really well. I am also planning to further enhance this virtual experience using holograms in the future.
Do you think that the importance of digital creators has increased in the last few years or is it still stagnant and can better? What do you feel and why?
I feel that because of digital creators, a lot of content is FREE to consume. This is really important as it enables the society to learn and gain information that would otherwise had to be learned through books or by spending money. There is a vast amount of free entertainment and knowledge available at all times, I’m sure you go to youtube for tutorials for alot of things. Also, this has lead to the formation of online communities and communication between people with similar beliefs.
Lastly, let us know a bit about your future plans for 2021.
For the next year, I will be launching my original music which is long due now. I want to start performing more. I also want to start my own Clothing merchandise soon.
