Artist: Sid Sriram

Not many singers can cover the likes of Adele, Frank Ocean, Drake, Bruno Mars and successfully create a new unique version of the song. Yet, this is what young singer Sid Sriram has done and people are definitely noticing. However, Sid also creates beautifully composed original songs which truly allow him to spread his talents even more.

Sid first discovered his interest in music at the young age of three when his mother began teaching him Indian classical vocals. It would not be long after that he would dive into the American music that consumes us on a daily basis. As he began getting older, Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, and Jazz all stood out to him, and you can hear each genre within his passionate singing. Sid has cited influences on his website as Lauryn Hill, Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, and Kanye West.

2008 would prove to be a big year for Sriram where he began his college career at the Berklee College of Music. There he would begin to take songwriting and his music more serious. As he continued to perfect his craft he would debut a Acoustic EP called Be Easy: The Acoustic Sessions, which after its October 2010 release has accumulated over 10,000 downloads. He has found some amazing support online as well, especially with some of the blogs with a substantial following. He is also steadily approaching a million views and has over 3,000 subscribers on his Youtube account.

This past Spring, Sriram released two brand new singles called, "Limitless" and "Farther, Closer." Both these songs show his vocal ability, his mainstream accessibility, and pure songwriting talent. After all his influences and style, Sid has found his way into the hearts of thousands. Although music has sometimes lacked in the past few years with raw talent, Sid is ready to prove what honest talent is. His brand of Urban/Indie/Pop will be hard to ignore in 2011-2012 and be on the lookout for future projects.
