Here is Harish Budhwani in a conversation with GOGO Magazine.

1) When did your journey as a musician begin?

5 years back, when I joined a band as a rhythm guitarist. We used to perform all over Pune as well as in outstation gigs.

2) Which was your first song?

I started songwriting/ composing almost 10 years back but I released my debut single, “Saari Umar”  in January 2020.

3) Which has been your most memorable live performance? 

26th January, 2019 – My first Motojojo Gathering. The reception I got there is still unmatchable. It’s more special because it was the first time I was playing a whole full set of my own songs and till then I wasn’t really confident about my music. But that day changed everything for me.

4) How do you manage investment for your music productions?

I work as a software engineer in a startup. Basically a 10-7 job and then 7 -12 is my music time 🙂

 5) Who has been your inspiration?

Well, not particularly one but to name a few, A R Rehman, Damien Rice, Coldplay even Sachin Tendulkar. I admire people who are hard-working and honest with their work.

6) Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?

I see myself making better music than now 🙂 I just always want to keep learning and making new things. That gives me the ultimate happiness 🙂

 7) Tell us about your latest track.

Saari Umar is an old school love song. It’s written by someone who still believes in writing letters/ cards than an email. Meeting someone far away rather than a video call. Basically who still believes that an “innocent relationship” can still exist in this fast-paced digital world. 🙂

8) Which is your most preferred genre?

I like semi-classical, pop, indie, blues, little bit of jazz and rock too.

9) How was life in quarantine?

Ohh its been very different but good. Learned a lot new things in general, apart from learning all the household chores(obviously ;). But yes it made me realize that we can’t take life for granted, its valuable. Also, made some new music, which I am excited to share soon 🙂 But yes missing performing live, stage shows and traveling.
