Garry Sandhu’s musical journey began at the young age of twelve in the Panjab, where under the guidance of Gurdeep Singh Sandhu was taught * Kavishri*. A form of religious singing, Kavishri is an energetic and dynamic form of singing, which relies on the power of the vocals to compensate for the lack of any instruments. Garry would often be required to sing live in front of large audiences whilst performing Kavishri, an invaluable experience for any young performer. Performing Kavishri and singing at his local Gurdwara, Garry was given an enduring spiritual platform to start his journey into music.
Garry Sandhu’s own musical influences come from a wide ranging number of artists, including the multi talented and skilled *Waris Brothers* (Manmohan, Kamal & Sangtar) who take precedence with their energetic performances. An important influence on Garry Sandhu is the late & supremely talented *Soni Pabla*; whose enigmatic voice has inspired Garry more than any other.
It was when Garry Sandhu moved to the UK when he’s passion for singing was reinvigorated. Garry was encouraged by family and friends to pursue a singing career, initially performing at private functions, where his natural ability to sing live effortlessly was clearly evident. Having settled in arguably the heartland of UK Bhangra; the West Midlands, Garry was in the perfect position to harness his natural vocal gift.
The past year has seen Garry busy in the studio, working with some of the finest producers in the UK Asian Music scene, developing his debut album. The recently released ‘Mein Ne Peenda’ produced by Kam Frantic, has cemented Garry Sandhu as one of the most exciting young stars in the UK Bhangra scene.
