This interview with Prash about "Prash" - name of his band - on Soundclick.com (and don't forget to click to read reviews):
Why this name?
Its what everyone calls me... its a short version of my first name.
Do you play live?
I play live occassionaly with a jazz/blues band. I play the lead guitar for the band and also do some vocal bits. But, by and large my obsession is writing, composing and arranging.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The ease of distribution rocks!!! The exchange of ideas between musicians across different cultures, the friends one makes... its a boon to all musicians worldwide!
Would you still sign a record contract with a major label?
I got back to music making after 6 years. I used to play a lot of guitar in my college... then, I got an MBA in marketing and worked for 5 years during which time, music was discarded. One day, I couldnt take it anymore and quit everything and now, pursue music as a full time profession.
My influences are too diverse to list and get a fair representation... my earliest memories of music are hindi film songs, then moving onto mainstream western pop, heavy metal, jazz and blues and then electronica. These days, I am heavily into classical, film background type of music.
