Iâ€™ve wanted to cover a Linkin Park for long now and here it is finally! This is one of my favorites â€“ One Step Closer. This is classic Linkin Park showcasing their Nu Metal/Rap Rock style. I love the riffs and the attitude with which Chester Bennington sings. Iâ€™ve tried to capture the emotions (anger/hate) as much as I could.
This one goes out to Anup Menon, who is a die hard Linkin Park fan.
This is a vintage Beatles number, written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and sung by Lennon. I love this song for various reasons but the two main ones are the simplicity of the melody, the amazing lyrics.
This song is dedicated to my dear Amma as it happens to be one of her favorite songs. She sang it back in the day while she was doing her MA. Hope you like it Amma 🙂

This is my favorite song from the movie Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. I am very happy to upload my first duet with Smitha. Shes done a fab job singing. She had some issues with her recording setup as a result of which her voice sounds a little muddy. As always, harmonies have been added. Hope you guys enjoy this one!

I love Michael Jackson and think hes an artist whose music transcends time. He defined a generation! Heres the story behind this venture…..I was working on an original composition with a friend of mine and wanted Sudeip to do the guitarwork for it. So I suggested he try something like the guitar work in Beat It and Sudeip agreed. Around 9:00 pm I got a call from Sudeip and he said â€œI have a surprise for you. You know Iâ€™m crazy right? So guess what I did?â€ I had no clue! It so happens he had worked on Beat It instead of the original composition!!!! Needless to say I loved it and the rest is History!!
Sudeip and I go back a long way. We met back in college where he was my super senior. It is thanks to him that I started singing in college, it is thanks to him that I joined Muziboo and most importantly it is thanks to him that my wife heard me sing for the first time. I had a blast working with him on this and hope this is the first of many to follow!

This song is from the tamil movie Vaaranam Aayiram, and is just my second tamil attempt. I’ve worked with Tara before and she’s done a splendid job on this song. Special thanks to her and Meera for helping with in understanding the lyrics, pronuniciation and expressions. Tara and I have added a few variations and introduced some new harmonies at the end of the song. Hope you all enjoy this cover. We would appreciate your feedback!
This is my first duet with Srividya. I want to thank her for introducing me to this beautiful song and for singing this with me. I think she has done a splendid job!
As compared to my other covers, Iâ€™ve introduced very few (if any) improvisations in this song based on advise I received from people like Dhiraj, Tara etc. Srividya has introduced a few subtle variations which I feel complimented the song beautifully.
Vidya and I would like to thank Soumitra and Vidyu for lending us this karaoke track. Much appreciated guys!!!
Special thanks to Tara and Meera for reviewing the song a zillion times and helping us improve the end product. Thanks a lot guys!!

My wife and I were on the road a month back or so, and happened to hear this song. She had a sudden desire to hear me sing this song and so here it is! This is a Tom Petty classic. Its kind of odd that I listen to Tom Petty almost every day and yet this is the first Tom Petty song that Iâ€™m covering.
For those of you who are familiar with the song, Iâ€™ve altered the harmonies and changed the ending too just to give it a different flavor.
For those who are listening to Tom Petty for the first time and like this song, do check out some others like Running down a dream, Free Falling, Wont back down etc.
This is my first collaborative effort with Meera Manohar. Meera is a veteran audio blogger. She is a regular performer in live shows in the Bay area. She has a very distinct melodious voice and is classically trained. I want to thank Meera for giving me this opportunity.
This is probably the most recognized song from the movie Yuvraaj.There are some variations in our version as compared to the original. Weâ€™ve introduced some harmony to add color to the song and make it sound fuller. Looking forward to hearing from fellow bloggers on our rendition.
