Mumbai, Sep 12 (IANS) Artiste Sahil Sharma, who goes by the stage name Zaeden, says the entire process of going back to his roots with his song “Tere bina” was exciting and a challenging opportunity.
“I have always grown up in a musically infused atmosphere. Even before getting into dance music, I heard my father creating cover versions of Kishore Kumar classics. He inspired me to creatively expand when he heard me sing randomly at home and suggested I should record at a professional studio,” said Zaeden, known for energetic music.
The video of “Tere bina” features Amyra Dastur. It is about the power of love.
“Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers was also a huge inspiration in this creative process. I’ve spent almost a year working on ‘Tere bina’. The entire process of going back to my roots to explore my capabilities as a singer-songwriter was both exciting and challenging. A lot of my fans relate to this side to me and that’s the best feeling for me as an artist. As a person, I feel that the takeaway through this whole transition is that I have become more earnest. I am spending dedicated hours in the studio and not just focusing on production, but on the whole package. I am singing and dancing in my live shows, which is something novel for me,” added the Delhi-based producer.
Talking about the single, Amyra said: “The song gives a millennial interpretation to love, which was the reason why I agreed to be a part of it in the first place. Despite this being Zaeden’s first Hindi song, ‘Tere bina’ is not your run in the mill romantic Hindi song. It has a more acoustic feel to it and is extremely poignant.”
