Singer-songwriter and producer Sid Sriram represents a collision point of radically different worlds. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in music production and engineering. It was at Berklee that he started exploring and building his own sound, a bold cross section where pop, soul, his Indian classical roots, and alternative/ambient music clash vibrantly.
Sriram was raised on a dynamic, rich foundation of South Indian classical (carnatic) music, a style that would become his creative framework and anchor. He grew up soaking in the music of legendary artists such as Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, Jeff Buckley, the Beatles, and Luther Vandross. These influences have defined his artistic evolution. With his work in Indian cinema soundtrack music resonating with millions, Sriram has developed an exponentially growing fanbase. His live productions are exhilarating, engaging, and vulnerable; thousands pack venues to experience his emotionally immersive shows. His debut LP, Entropy, releases later this year.
