Last updated: 03/17/2011 12:00:00 PM

With so many accolades it would be hard to include all here, the young Raghav began his musical training at the tender age of five, studying Indian classical music with Guru Nishi Kant Bali. By the time he was six he was performing in notable shows in Canada.

Raghav soon went on to receive offers of scholarships from many music schools across America and seized the chance to study with world-renowned vocal coach Seth Riggs in Los Angeles. Seth's other students include Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Madonna and Julio Iglesias!

Whilst in L.A, the multi-talented and tri-lingual (Hindi, French, English) Raghav established himself as a prolific songwriter by winning an award for top original song in 1998 as voted by the National Songwriters Association Of America. Raghav then came to England to study at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) and has commuted between Calgary and the UK ever since.

Raghav's unique voice and exceptional songwriting skills have caught the attention of top producers all over the world. This has led to a recent collaboration with Grammy award winning reggae duo 'Sly and Robbie' (No Doubt, Bob Marley, Simply Red, The Rolling Stones). He has also worked with producers such as 'Sunship' (Craig David) and 'Mushtaq' (Mis-teeq, Damage, Beverley Knight, Terry Hall).
