Abhilash Choudhury is a singer/composer/lyricist from Guwahati, India. He recently released his first EP which is a compilation of 3 Hindi songs. Through the indie-folk EP called Musafir, Abhilash beautifully expresses his thoughts with the help of melodious tunes.
Abhilash has been singing ever since he can remember. His mother is a trained Hindustani classical singer, which helped expose him to music at a very young age. At the age of 17, he started playing the guitar. Eventually, he started writing his own tunes and the three-track EP comprises all original compositions.
He draws influence from a range of genres such as indie folk, rock, reggae, blues and funk. Some of his favourite artistes are The Beatles, Bob Dylan, John Mayer, Norah Jones, Iron and Wine and Jason Mraz. His music focuses on simple and subtle lyrics which come straight from the heart accompanied by lots of melodic hooks.
