“My first professional journey started in an IT sector after completing my engineering degree. However, deep within me, there was a passion and love for songs and music that had taken root since my early teenage years. I had always been drawn to music and expressing myself through singing. I started to shoot cover songs and share them on YouTube.
But as time went on, I became aware of the complex issue of copyrights. I realized that to continue my musical journey, I had two options: either obtain permission for the copyrighted songs I covered or create my own original compositions. Understanding the daunting task of obtaining copyright permissions, I decided to tap into my own talent and started composing original music during my early 20s. It was a decision that required great courage and fearlessness, but I felt it was the right path for me.
Leaving my full-time job was a difficult choice, but I did pursue my love for music. I took the leap and became a full-time independent music composer, singer & songwriter. It was not an easy transition, and it took time and patience to convince my retired parents about my unconventional career switch. They had concerns and raised arguments, but I knew that I had to make them understand the depth of my passion and the potential within me.
Gradually, they began to comprehend the strength and authenticity of my work. Patience became my companion throughout this process, as I understood that it takes time for others to accept and appreciate a change in direction.
I still persistently keep knocking on the door of opportunity until it opens for me. It is a continuous process of learning, improving, and expanding my skills as a musician and songwriter.
I have composed more than 20 original songs, pouring my emotions and experiences into every melody and lyric. I have distanced myself from providing copied cover songs, focusing solely on the authenticity of my own creations. The joy I feel when people resonate with my music is unparalleled, and it reassures me that I made the right decision to follow my passion.
My journey from engineering to becoming a full-time original music composer, singer & songwriter has been a rollercoaster ride of self-discovery, patience, and belief in myself.
If there’s one lesson I’ve learned from this transformative journey, it’s that we should never underestimate the potential within ourselves. We all have unique talents and passions waiting to be explored. It may take time, courage, and patience, but when we embrace our true calling, the possibilities are limitless.”
