Singer/songwriter/producer Sid Sriram represents a collision point of radically different worlds; a true hybridist. Sriram was born in Chennai, India. His family moved to the San Francisco/Bay Area suburbs when he was one. This duality of cultural roots was integral in forming Sriram’s personal and artistic identity. 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.
Listed as one of the 30 Great Guitarists under 30 in the world, by Acoustic Guitar Magazine USA, Dhruv is an accomplished musician and songwriter who has established a solid and energetic following of listeners. His latest project, the release of his new album, Orion, launched on the 19th of September, is an eclectic mix of percussive, electro-acoustic, and hard rock with jumpy riffs, best defined as a labour of love, representing his many avatars as an artist.
