While I mainly write about the music business in India, with over 20 years of experience as a journalist covering both Indian and international acts, I am in a position to provide feedback to artists on their compositions along with suggestions on how to promote their releases. It's unlikely that I will be able to write about an individual artist but if I really like something, I will share it on my social media. And if it fits into a story about larger industry trends, I'll get in touch!
