It also is a debut album for many talented new singers like Siddharth, Harini, Suresh, Chenthil, Babu, Kumar, Cornelio, Miguel and Maha. Besides, the album also features lyricists and instrumentalist from
I have also had the honor of singing backing vocals for one song.
It was such an awesome experience working with Srikanth. I was extremely nervous, but Srikanth put me at ease with his jokes. And the recording went very well.
In those 2 days of recording I learned so much about voice modulation and expression. It was a great experience for me as a musician to sing under him.
I have known him over the past 8 years. I first met him in tfmpage, an online music discussion board. What always amazes me about him is his spirited energy at trying different things in music. Most of us after 8 hours at work would just want to take it easy once we get home. But not Srikanth. He stays up late every single night working on some new ideas or instruments in his studio. His perseverance in chasing his dream is commendable. I am very sure we all can expect many more great albums from this talented person.
