Singer/songwriter/producer Sid Sriram represents a collision point of radically different worlds; a true hybridist. He graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production and Engineering; here is where he started exploring and building his own sound. Sid Sriram’s music creates 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; this form is 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, Sid Sriram has developed an exponentially growing, die hard fanbase. His live productions are exhilarating, engaging and vulnerable; thousands pack out venues to experience his emotionally immersive shows.
In his own words, “I think I make music for those who are in need of some healing. Producing and performing music is my form of release; I want to create experiences that allow people to feel through a spectrum of emotions.” With his daringly unique debut LP Entropyreleasing later this year, Sid Sriram looks to impact the world.
I grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and learned how chords work from hearing my dad play Bach every morning for my whole childhood. I heard no pop music until around the age of 12 when I discovered “The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota” by Weird Al Yankovic, and everything changed.
