My name is Advait, and far far away in a dark and magical room, I sit and write music. I am a composer and keyboardist, and my music is best described as world fusion with a pop feel.
I was born on a lazy Saturday afternoon in 1991. It took very little time for me to discover my grandmother's little keyboard and start banging away on it. After a few years of listening to my amateurish noodlings, my parents enrolled me in piano lessons. After 10 years of lessons and a couple of exams, I realized that becoming a classical concert pianist was not the path I wanted to take.
I taught myself many of the riffs and techniques that I use today, and I constantly look for ways to improve my playing. I am inspired by the music and the philosophy of Yanni, and by the technical mastery of musicians such as Jordan Rudess. When I was 13, I taught myself a bit of the flute, so that I could play an instrument that I could carry around!
I first had thoughts about seriously pursuing music at the age of 11. Only when I was 15, writing the first songs that would appear in SoulPepper, was this idea cemented. I love giving pleasure to others through my music. It is a transcendental thrill.
I have since gained a loyal crew of listeners, for whom I am always grateful. I have composed two albums, and am focusing on writing music towards my third. My musical career is just beginning to blossom. Thank you all for your faith and support.
