I sing and play acoustic guitar for the India-based multi-genre band SpeakEasy Brownie. I contribute actively to the band even though I currently live in Ireland (thanks, internet!) We released our first-ever single in August 2019 and will be releasing more music throughout 2020.

On 23rd February 2020, we released our latest single, ‘Revving To Forever’  — our most recent release. Visit our website — — to learn more about the band.

My musical journey began when I was 5 when my parents gifted me a custom-made acoustic guitar. I took to learning the guitar seriously only when I turned 14. In the meantime, by the time I was 10, I’d realised that playing the drums was what I enjoyed most.

I’ve played the drums at school and for a few bands, including Lost in Translation‘s promising yet scrappily-recorded EP project that was released in 2009. I sang backing vocal on the EP, too. I’ve been singing on stage since I was 5; it still is one of my greatest passions.

In case you’re curious, I play a 2008 Breedlove Atlas Series acoustic guitar (AD 25 SM) and use Snarling Dog picks. I prefer using Sennheiser or Shure headphones and Planet Waves circuit-breaker cables.

Since May 2020, I’ve been volunteering with What’s The Scene?, a platform that facilitates the discovery of independent artists, helps promote them and fosters a connection between artists. You can look us up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
