Basically, I am from Chennai, married and two lovely kids (a boy and a girl), currently living in USA. My Interest in music started at a very early age, but never got the chance to get properly trained. I had a natural talent to memorize lyrics. I always believed that I could sing well if I hear the song a couple of times. That belief may as well be misplaced when I was younger, but whatever I could sing today is because of that belief and confidence. However, my interest outweighs my talent by a ratio of 100:1.
I used to participate in cultural programmes of all colleges that used to invite us. Though I was more successful in Antakshri (because of my knowledge of Tamil movie songs and ability to remember the lyrics), I always considered myself to be a singer.
Since 2001, I became an active listener of Hindi songs and have even tried a few of them.
There is an advertisement that is shown in the TV in USA – where everyone says what they will do when they grow up (despite showing all grown up people :-). Until an year ago, I was saying that, when I grow up, I would get trained to be a singer. I don’t know whether I have grown up or not, but at least I have started getting trained:-)
When I started singing again after many years and got my voice recorded first in 2011 and subsequently when I joined in Muziboo in 2012, I wasn’t sure I had a natural voice. The voice tended to reflect the style of the original singer and therefore for different songs, the voice sounded different. But after 6 months of training, I realized that I sound unique and distinct irrespective of the song I sing. I also think my own voice came to the core the more confident I became of my own ability.
