Samplified: Extensive high quality sample libraries

You’ve written a killer song. The lyrics and music are flowing but there’s just something missing. Maybe it’s a guitar strum, riff or pluck. It could be a thumping bassline or some shimmering keys. More often than not, it’s a groovy drum beat. You know that any these would be the perfect complement to your newly written potential hit, but how can you get that sound for your song? If you’re a beginner, it’s a tough ride to create that professional recording sound at home. On the other hand, if you’re a professional you’re usually hard pushed for time to

A heap of well-received releases followed, with the producer bringing his classically unique sound to the

Navi Singh Allures The Listener With His Talent In Deep Verse

Navi Singh is a singer-songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from New York City. Who blends classical training with popular music sensibilities. Navi can be seen performing in cities throughout the northeast United States, and is currently in the studio preparing to record material for his upcoming album, entitled Runaway Sunshine, and scheduled for release this winter.

Navi began writing songs while studying music in college and began performing at Lower East Side, Manhattan music clubs shortly after moving to the big city. Since then, he has written, performed, and recorded extensively, catching the ears of musicians and fans around the region. As a composer, he has created music for short films, animations, and television spots, as well as custom pieces and arrangements for corporate events. Navi also teaches piano, guitar, and music theory to students of all ages in his private studio.

It is hard to be anything but upbeat and happy when listening to Navi Singh. The mesh of smooth guitar, great vocals, and even better lyrics make his music really easy to listen to. He’s a passionate singer with a great range, a competent guitar player, and a gifted lyricist. He keeps his melodies clear and simple which allows him to flex the emotions of his voice and lets the listener explore the depth and weight of his lyrics.

Navi Singh has released some demos while he works on his official  upcoming  releases. The three acoustically driven tracks are “One Taste of Sweet Love”, “Shoot and Run” and “Turning World is Over Turning”.

So just where do you put Singh’s music? What kind of music does he play? Is it Folk, Acoustic Rock, Americana, Country Rock or something along those lines. The fact is, you can’t put it anywhere. Navi Singh has created his own style. His absorption of multiple genres has fused together. It’s the type of music you can listen to and reflect on yourself through innovative musical theory and imaginative lyrical poeticism.

Singh’s music is not complex. It’s original. And because it’s not complex, anyone can appreciate it. He uses basic chord progressions but allures the listener with his talent in deep verse. As far what makes him distinctive goes, I guess it would have to be his voice, or maybe his guitar style. It’s really hard to decide. That’s what makes him so intriguing. You can attempt to compare him to other artists, but really he has a sound all of his own. His music is for everyone. There is no one who won’t appreciate it.

When days are pretty stressful and people get on your nerves, Singh’s music is a great choice for chilling out. Sometimes it is good to take a break from electric distortion and screaming vocals and just take a second listen to how beautiful a guitar can sound and enjoy the chill factor of this music.

He is so relaxed, but takes nothing for granted and it definitely shows through his music. Those who don’t see the genius in Singh’s soulful simplicity are missing the point. What appears to be a bunch of somewhat repetitive chords and basic rhythm structures is really a collection of unique textures and moods that are conveyed so beautifully, they’ll move you. Navi Singh’s songs are raw and genuine goods – no additives thrown in! He is the real deal. He pulls no punches and he ain’t faking it.
