What do you do when a major music company in India robs you of your money, your time, your music, your video, but most importantly your dignity and self-worth? Well, you get depressed for a very long period of time, nine years to be exact. Hi, I am Rajan Shah and I am an independent (Indie), Hindi pop (Bollywood) songwriter. I have been playing music, on and off stage, for over 40 years (Harmonium/keyboard/piano, acoustic/electric/classical/bass guitar, Roland/Alesis electronic drum pads and drum set, etc.). And this is exactly what happened to me in 2008, I had fallen down but I’m up again and I praise the living God for that, and also for curing me of my cancer in 2012. In October of 2017 I decided to write Hindi songs again and Jabse Tujhse Rubaru was the first song I wrote, just to try it out, which my wife and kids loved. So I decided to pursue it full time by taking the reign of my music and songwriting in my own hands. My motto is ‘Passion, Not Perfection’, so please don’t expect a movie like soundtrack as I work by myself and I don’t have the resources or a budget of a big producer. But that also means no one is telling me what to write about and what it should sound like. You can expect 100% raw, unpolished but also 100% originality from me – so no stealing of music or song ideas here. And unlike songs on the radio, where you listen to a song for the 37th time and then you think to yourself, “this song is not that bad!”, all I ask is that you listen to my song twice and I guarantee you will like them, if not, move to the next one. I choose and strive to write about love, but only what haven’t heard before, as opposed to hate and anger, which seems to be the favorite topics nowadays. I do hope that you’ll support me by giving my songs a listen and subsequently download or add my songs to your playlists. I would truly appreciate if you comment on the songs so I can be better at my craft. Search for me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google ‘Rajan Shah Music’ or ‘Rajan Shah’ in your music apps such as Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Google Play, Amazon, Saavn etc.
Thank you for visiting my website and all the best!
