About

 

Rishi Saluja began his musical journey at the age of eight, performing in a shopping centre talent show. It is safe to say that since then his musical ambitions have considerably changed. It wasn’t until the age of thirteen that Rishi started playing guitar and write songs. During his school years he was constantly musically involved, performing in choirs, as the lead singer of a Jazz band and in an indie rock collective – SAONA. A year out following his A-Levels has given him time to gig, write and work with Artist Development agency – ‘Bmuze’. Rishi began recording and producing himself from the age of 15 and has since then put the sporadic track online. ‘During this time I’ve refined my sound more and continued to experiment with different sounds and recording techniques’.

‘Hearing the soul within Paolo Nutini’s voice when I was about nine exposed me to something i’d never heard before. This opened up a door and led me to artists such as Melody Gardot, James Brown and Stevie Wonder.’ Along with the influence of soul, Rishi is also inspired by folk music from the likes of Laura Marling, Nick Drake and by the more alternative, Jeff Buckley. ‘All of the music I am inspired by seems to be honest and that’s something I try and carry through in all my writing. My music taste is eclectic which is something I value greatly because how can you make original music if you’ve only listened to one paricular style/genre? For me, the more I expose myself to, the more musical ideas I attain.’

Rishi will be releasing his debut EP “Dream Before I Sleep” on 26th February, and will be gigging extensively around the UK for the duration of 2016 – check out the gigs listings above or get in touch at the details below!
