POP: Today''s Top 40, POP: Asian Pop
A 24 year old New York born recording artist and producer who combines English, Punjabi, and Hindi with authentic western style and instrumentation.
American’s have recently become more interested in the sound of South Asian music (ex. popularity of Punjabi MC, use of minor cord progression, incorporation of tablas, dhols, sitars, and other Indian instrumentation in today’s hit songs). The western world is on the verge of accepting an American “Desi” star. It is essential that this star has an understanding of “what is Hot” and “what is Not” to the American people.
Ozzie has demonstrated that he can capture an American audience. His single “Treasure the Moment” has been played on over 40 American radio stations, he has opened for Jay Sean at the Roxy in NYC, Taz of Stereo Nation, performed on Broadway, and was given the honor to sing the United States national anthem for the NY Mets at Shea stadium.
It is Ozzie’s ultimate goal to create a style of South Asian music that will appeal to both the West and the East.
Ozzie has what it takes to Bridge the gap between the West and the East. His musical style makes “Desi” music sound “Hot” to a worldwide audience.
Americans have embraced seductive South Asian melodies as the background to many of today’s biggest hits, and have moved to the sound of Punjabi lyrics and dhol beats. There is a strong market to South Asian music, but the key is in the artist’s presentation.
Artists, such as Jay Sean (from UK), and Raghav (Canada) have been successful in adopting a similar strategy. These western artists have incorporated “Desi” lyrics and style into Hip-hop and R&B. The UK and Canada are western markets, but as we all know, it is the music of the US that has worldwide influence. There has not yet been an American “Desi” artist with great potential, Ozzie is the first!
In order to build a fan base, and prove that his novel musical style would be successfully accepted throughout the world, Ozzie under the record label Just Us Records has traveled to Mumbai, India to begin promotion of his debut album, Journey West 2 East, presented by renowned Bollywood music composer Aadesh Shrivastava and releasing ceremony performed by the legendary Bollywood film star, and pride of India, the one and only Amitabh Buchan "Big B".
The Album Journey West 2 East consists of 11 tracks, designed to demonstrate Ozzie’s diverse vocal and production skills.
Ozzie is not only the performing artist, but is also the songwriter and producer of all his music. This affords Ozzie the unique opportunity to oversee all aspects of the creative process, and assures his music flows seamlessly.
