Artist Originals presents Entropy Live by Sid Sriram | Bangalore
Entropy, the Artist Originals debut from vocalist, musician and producer Sid Sriram, is nothing less than a groundbreaking cultural and artistic convergence—the invention of a new creative space that has no borders. And as with so many musical watersheds, its origin story is that of a supremely gifted young artist who discovers a way to reconcile his divergent roots, with brilliant results.
Sid Sriram (28) was born in Chennai and subsequently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area with his family when he was one. This duality of cultural roots has been integral in forming Sriram’s personal and artistic identity. Sid comes from a long lineage of Carnatic (South Indian Classical) musicians with his mother having started a Carnatic vocal music school in Fremont, California in the early 90's. Having noticed Sid's deeply intuitive inclination for music at a very early age, she started teaching him when he was three. He performed on stage for the first time later that year and fell in love with the stage instantly.
In 2012, Sid graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production and Engineering. During his time at Berklee, Sid immersed himself in the world of creating records; he honed in on and refined his songwriting, vocal technique and production style. It was during his time at Berklee where he started building his own sonic vision. Sid Sriram's music creates a bold cross section where Pop/Soul, his Indian Classical roots and alternative/ambient music clash vibrantly.
The Oscar and Grammy Award winning composer AR Rahman gave Sid Sriram his first break in Indian films in late 2012, with the groundbreaking song, “Adiye”. With his work in Indian Cinema soundtrack music resonating with millions, Sriram has developed an exponentially growing fanbase.
Mahesh Raghunandan is a musician from Bangalore, India who is coming to be known as one of the best singer-songwriters in the country.

Mahesh started his career in early 2013 and slowly gained attention of local audiences with his solo-performances at venues in Bangalore. He has toured across the country while playing at numerous music festivals and performance venues over the years such as Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Backdoors Festival, Stage42 Festival and more.
