His Debut EP – Dream Sequence

After years of struggle in my musical journey I finally came up with my debut EP “Dream Sequence”. Before this, I used to play with the bands like “Aagyat” “Ground Zero” “Tribal Rain” “Corpulent Deformity”etc. Apart from all this, I started my own side project which was based on instrumental and progressive in genre. In the year of 2015, I released my first instrumental track title Marantha followed by Through the Galilee, Makes Me Happy, Dear Brother, Advent of the Messiah, Faith is Patience With Mystery.

Now I am finally out with my EP.

All these tracks are an endeavour of love. I have done all the production.

Whenever I used to face any challenges my family was the first to encourage me and my friends too as well . This is how I used to tackle every difficult situation. Being a musician, challenges are everywhere, but its up to an individual how we face and how we deal with those.
