Posted at November 19th, 2015 | by Shantanu | in

Here’s a list of solo artists from your local scene that you might like, so check them out.

Avneesh Gadgil

The new kid on the block, Avneesh Gadgil describes himself as, “a DJ/producer who not only defines life expressions through sound, but also gives it a visual and verbal rendition”. Apparently his music is “mostly inspired by elements of chance and human moods which have the unobtrusive quality to weave an atmosphere which connects instantly with his audience.”


Check out the preview of his upcoming track ‘Pie in the Sky’ here:

Sahil Vasudeva

Sahil Vasudeva is a classically trained pianist based out of New Delhi. Being one of the few musicians in India performing western classical music, he wishes to revive the slowly dying art of solo piano performance, one show at a time. He is currently working on his solo album scheduled for release in 2016. Sahil releases his music under the moniker ‘Opus’.

Rounak Maiti

Rounak Maiti is a singer songwriter based out of Bombay, but has been studying in the US for over three years and is currently in his senior year. Rounak writes the most honest songs and delivers them to his listeners organically and unprocessed. One tune at a time (except for an EP in the middle), Rounak releases his self recorded tracks via his steadily growing soundcloud.

Takar Nabam

Delhi based singer/songwriter, session guitar player and overall rockstar, Takar Nabam is a household name in the capital. Known for his virtuosity at the guitar, whether its jazz, blues, metal, pop (i could add a couple more but you get the picture right?) our man takar plays it all, and nails it too. This time at ziro, I saw him go on stage for impromptu random improvisations during at least 3 other performances.


He recently started work on his solo singer/songwriter set that features the song “Hello” that you can check out here:

Jordan Johnson

A prolific singer/songwriter based out of New Delhi, Jordan Johnson, at age 20, already has two albums to his name, “Distance and a kiss” his debut solo record and “Pieces of Mind” released earlier this year with his band NORTH thats generated quite the buzz.
