Naveena Saraswathi Sabatham

The music industry seems to be turning out into a ground for not only the big league composers and it is proved by the newbie, Prem Kumar. He has brought in the freshness of the 90’s in his songs with effective treatment  and can be expected to fetch a great name in the immediate future.

Rosemary Butler’s That’s When I Find You

A voice so powerful, you are spellbound instantly, lyrics that have you interested from the start, a first rate back up band that enhances the magic of every score – You Just Watch Me is everything you expect from a voice as classic as Rosemary Butler, and a bit more. This is an amalgam of all the experience she has gained through years of back up singing and performing alongside greats like Ray Charles, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Carole King, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor and many more.

Ivan Vera Maadhiri

After consecutive album hits from his stable , C.Sathya proves to be a real hero with this movie.

Mirror – Ellie Goulding

After Bittersweet, the hot mess of a track that was a part of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 Original Soundtrack, Goulding hits it off in another “epic” saga OST with Mirror. While I’m yet to watch Catching Fire, the film adaptation of the second part of the The Hunger Games series… this track, a part of the OST released on November 19th, 2013, feels like it carries a tiny part of the film’s soul. From the ethereal background melody in the beginning to Goulding’s vocals that feel like a splash of cold water until the fiery, resolute chorus steals the show, Mirror gave me the chills.

Interview with Shilpa Natarajan

I began learning Carnatic music when I was three (It was sort of a rule to learn music in our household really). But at that point, I just wanted to play and have a good time with the other kids! So I would chill with them most of the time. But my family is also quite into music


At first instance itself, one could sense the grandeur of the track. This theme music is sure to deliver goosebumps to the listeners & elevate the movie to much higher scale. The theme music is layered with horns, period drums, extended choir section etc. Even though it has some resemblance to the ‘Braveheart’ pieces, this theme music is definitely a winner. The closing segment of the track is really impressive.

Saree Ke Fall Sa – R…Rajkumar

This is an addictive song ! ‘Saree Ke Fall Sa’ is a folksy-peppy number with an interesting hook which works big time.The singers,Antara Mitra and Nakash Aziz have had a blast while singing this.The peculiar arrangements work and the interludes are foot-tapping.The choreography steals the show precisely with some trademark Prabhudeva touches and this one’s going to work big time.

Interview with Greg Foresman

Drawing from rock, blues, folk, and a little bit of country, Greg Foresman delivers one unique sound to his audiences. He joined Martina McBride's touring band in 1997 while still keeping his own identity as a guitarist, often playing at the popular Indianapolis bar, The Slippery Noodle.
