As a music industry professional for over 15 years, I have had vast experience in the fields of composing, recording, producing, mixing, performing music as well as in building a brand as an artist and doing everything under the gambit of music business (release strategies, sourcing gigs, developing relations with events companies, tour management, PR, Brand Partnerships etc.) I believe I can provide valuable feedback to artists on their song arrangements, recordings, mixes, masters (across multiple genres and languages) as well as provide insights and advice as to how to navigate the Indian music industry, explore revenue opportunities and build a thriving career and brand as an artist.
