Delivering hits like Angel Eyes and Can’t Get Enough, which had become chartbusters in the start of 2000s, Raghav is no less than a legend in the music industry. Born in Toronto, Canada, Raghav showed interest in Indian and R&B music at the tender age of 15. And by the time he was 16, he had written a song which won him an award by the National Songwriters Association of the US.
Trained under Seth Riggs, who has been a mentor to artists like Madonna, Stevie Wonder, etc., Raghav improved his vocals. After completing college, he was signed by A&R/V2 Records in 2003 where he worked closely with the DJ and Producer of 2Play. His first single So Confused was released in 2004, which was at number 6 in the UK Singles Chart. After releasing another couple of hit singles in the same year, this Desi boy finally released his debut album, Storyteller. But this was just the start.
After that, Raghav went on to release several other hit singles and albums and has been touring all over the world. And guess what? He also collaborated with musical king A.R. Rahman for a few of his songs! Isn’t that dope? He made his Bollywood playback debut with Ishq Shava in Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Raghav was thrilled to be the voice for Shah Rukh Khan.
He has won several awards over the years and his latest release, Maayera is a reflection of his journey into the music industry. This song captures his experience with Indian pop music with hints of his beloved R&B melody perfectly.
