Live show ritual:
I don’t eat anything except oranges one day before the show, warm up my vocal chords, wear chapstick to avoid chapped lips while singing, enter the stage with my right foot, give my respect to the stage and musicians by bowing, say a prayer to myself, and take a deep breath.
Favourite local musician:
If I’m talking about my North-American-born Desi community, I would say ‘The PropheC.’ He is from Canada.
EP or LP?
Early bird or night owl?
Night Owl. All my creativity happens at night when everyone’s asleep.
Road or studio?
Both. I am inspired in hotel rooms, studios, in the shower, everywhere! You name it.
Any shows or albums coming up?
Yes! I have a Pop Ballad single releasing soon called ‘Shattered.’

Rapid Fire Toronto Qs
Favourite local restaurant:
Not a particular restaurant. There’s only one type of cuisine I must have whenever I’m in Toronto and that’s Hakka food (Indo-Chinese food).
Favourite street in Toronto:
My favourite area is Yonge-Dundas square, of course! It is full of life and diversity. I love going there in the summer. It is interesting in the winter after heavy snowfall at 2 AM. The roads are empty and quiet. It’s peaceful and beautiful.
Favourite park in Toronto:
To be honest, I haven’t visited many parks in Toronto. Now I have something new to do next time.
Favourite music venue in Toronto:
Roger’s Centre. Hands down!
Favourite music store in Toronto:
I don’t have a favourite one, but I can say when I’ve needed last-minute equipment before a show in Toronto, the music stores have helped a lot (i.e. a music stand).
