Pavit Sanghera is a 21-year-old Singer-Songwriter based in Birmingham.

 

Her main genres are RnB/Soul and Indian Fusion. She has had a very interesting life. Having lived in Spain (3 years) and India (5 years) she’s experienced each culture with open arms and uses the knowledge that she has gained, to her advantage. Pavit brings a new flavour to the RnB scene. She is trained in Indian classical music and that heavily influences her tracks.

 

The Birmingham based RnB singer has sung with the famous “Tum hi ho Bandhu” Indian singer Neeraj Shridhar and the YouTube singer, Alex Aiono.

 

Pavit Sanghera has been gigging around Birmingham since she was 15 and was picked up by a Birmingham based record label “touchagencyuk” with whom she created “You Ran Away” with…

 

She has collaborated with other producers and has more music coming your way.

 

Pavit is in her 3rd and final year studying at BIMM which is Europe’s largest and leading music Universities. Keep a close eye on her!

 

Pavit Sanghera’s New Track “You Ran Away” is the heartbreak track to cry to. This RnB track paves another path for the RnB scene. She is one to watch, as her crisp, soothing, and powerful vocals are not a one-off! She can do this on a bad day.

 

With this track, she tries to shed light on an issue that she thinks everyone has gone through once in their lives: “When that one person you loved and cared about leaves you just when you needed them the most. Through this song the message is no matter how much it hurts, remember that this too will pass and the tears you shed will dry out.”

Tell us your names, country of birth, and childhood experience.

My name is Pavit Sanghera and I am a 21-year-old RnB/Indian fusion singer-songwriter based in Birmingham, England. I am trained in Indian classical music and I have lived in India for 4 years… I can sing and write songs in English, Spanish, Hindi, and Punjabi.

 

I was born and brought up in Birmingham, U.K. At the age of 8 my family and I moved to Spain just because we could (no reason) and we lived there for 3 years. After this, at the age of 11, we came back to England and that is when I decided to pursue music as a career. That’s when my brother and I moved away from our mother and left for India.

Tell us about your academic qualification.

I did my GCSE’s in India College, BTEC in Music through Academy of Music and Sound here at Birmingham University and currently studying to get my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Songwriting at BIMM University (Birmingham branch).

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music career, band name, experience, and skills.

I have been performing since I was 11 in front of big crowds. My guru who taught me Indian classical music has a lot of connection to big names in the Bollywood music industry so he would put on showcases for all his students to perform.

 

Then once I started college, I was still performing but now I was part of a band called Distinction but we don’t play as a band anymore. The places we/I performed at in Birmingham are; The Rainbow, The Victoria, The Roadhouse, The Dark Horse, Actress and Bishop, The Square, The sunflower Lounge (recently), The Bristol Pear.

 

I have done everything myself so far in terms of my music and the production, etc. but this song was actually picked up by a record company based in Birmingham itself, so I have been working with them to make this song what it is today.

.

.

.

Tell us your genre and idea behind your music video or song.

My genre as I would class it would be RnB/Soul but with Indian classical influences.

 

The idea behind the song was to convey a message on a topic that is very relevant to a lot of people no matter what background they come from.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to run a record label based on your experience as an artist.

I think the main thing for me would be the word “FAIR.” This industry is not always fair to their artists in terms of giving them total creative freedom and that makes the artists unhappy…

 

Also, some of these contracts that are given to artists especially new artists is very unfair and even inhumane in some cases. Thus, I would focus on what would be fair for both parties.

.

.

.

Tell us how you are promoting your music.

 Now my marketing plan has consisted of:

Contacting different blogs to cover the release of my songs or just me as an artist.

 

Contacting playlists with a good amount of following to add my song to their playlist when the song comes out.

 

Sending my song to BBC Introducing for coverage and also sending it off as a pitch for Spotify editorial playlists.

 

Other than that, I have a few teaser posts that I will be posting on my social media of the song and artwork.

 

After the release, I also have a video of me talking about my songwriting process that will go up on my IGTV for my fans to get more of an insight into my songwriting process.

.

Explain the story behind the song.

The story behind this song is when the one person you cared and loved the most and stuck by leaves your side as soon as things get hard for you. Kind of showing my journey of how I coped and worked through all the emotions I had towards this person. The message was that no matter how many tears you do cry, eventually they will dry up and you will move on.

.

Tell us how long you have been in the music business, your experience, and your future goal.

I have been an active member of the music industry for around 6 years now, making, producing, and releasing music.

 

My future goal is simple, to make songs that will appeal to any kind of person from any background and will make them feel something, sold-out shows, the whole package.

.

.

.

Tell us what makes you unique from others.

My music is what sets me apart. I am filling a gap in the market for the RnB scene. I have not seen many artists that look like me or come from an Indian background in my genre. I want girls/guys like me to see that even we can make a breakthrough in the western music industry by showing our cultures in the form of music. I think me being that voice is the one thing that sets me apart from the others.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your weakness and strength pertaining to music.

My weaknesses at the moment and I say moment because I have a growth mindset which means that I always want to become better at what I do, are my stage presence which I have been working a lot on and I am already getting better with every performance and also how to translate my vision to producers and others who are helping me with my music.

 

My strengths however are my passion for making music and my dedication to this creative outlet. I am very hardworking and never go into something without gaining enough knowledge about the subject.

List your five favourite songs including the artists.

On My Mind – Jorja Smith

Stone Cold – Demi Lovato

Think About That – Jessie J

How Could You Leave Us – NF

When I’m Gone – Eminem

.

.

.

Tell us your position on “Do It Yourself” and signing to a major label.

Now I am leaning towards the DIY position just because I am a new artist and want that creative freedom for myself to express my emotions without any outside pressure.

 

However, If the right contract came around, I wouldn’t be fully against the idea to get signed to a Major Record Label, but I think that would take a hell of a deal between the Label and me.

.

.

.

Tell us other activities you are pursuing apart from music.

Right now, I am focusing every part of me on my music but I do love to dance as well which I will be delving into more.
