My Musical Journey
From there I moved on to PESIT where I joined the college band as a rhythm guitarist. It was only in my second year of engineering college that Phenom really happened for me and I switched to the bass guitar! It was the first proper band I was part of and we did good for ourselves! We won quite a few local amateur band contests and even managed to put together a really nice sounding EP called ‘Unbound‘ which we licensed under the creative commons license and were possibly the first Indian band to do that! Phenom continued for a bit after college and even won a local radio station’s ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition.
I met Raghu Dixit at a coffee shop in Bangalore and he was looking to put together a band from scratch to play songs that he had composed and things just clicked from there! I joined what later became ‘The Raghu Dixit Project‘ and there started what is possibly the most exciting journey of my life!
Currently, I play the bass guitar for ‘The Raghu Dixit Project’ and also as a sessions bass guitarist for some movie soundtracks, advertising jingles and other music projects for Raghu’s production house Raghu Dixit Productions. I also manage the band in India and am a significant part of the team that manages the band world wide.
I used to play bass guitar and double up as music director for the C.A.U.S.E Foundation productions that are put together annually in Bangalore and am a core team member of the Strategy and Working Committee. I often play music with friends who come together sometimes and play some fun sets at local venues around the country.
