Artist Line Up
He's a singer-songwriter who just moved to Mumbai to give music that one shot. Raghav was the semifinalist on the second season of 'The Stage', an English reality TV show airing on VH1 and Colors Infinity. It was the show that made him realise he wanted to do music, something that he'd enjoyed and worked with from school and college but had always taken a back seat. Prior to moving to Mumbai, he was working at an early stage startup in Bangalore. With a lot of emphasis on lyrics and melody, 'simple and catchy' would be the best way to describe his music. Head over to his YouTube channel to hear more of his stuff!
