Chirag was born and brought up in New Delhi, India. During his last few years at school, he developed an immense interest in music – first singing and gradually playing the guitar and keyboards. Some of his early musical influences were mainly Hemant Kumar and the Beatles. In fact the sole reason he ever picked up the guitar was the John Lennon poster in his room, who he fanatically idolized at that time. Chirag formed his first rock band at the age of 15 with a bunch of musically inclined friends. They called themselves POP or Plain Ordinary People – the good boys of rock n roll who played a few local shows at fetes and school farewells. Then Chirag went on to join a few other bands as guitar player and bassist before finally settling with Krossbreedz as a keyboardist. This was a 6 piece classic rock outfit that played several rock shows, won many coveted college competitions all over India and got occasional media coverage. Those were the days of long hair and playing to head banging, screaming crowds running in thousands.
Chirag now lives and works in Seattle area. He is married to a loving wife and they have two adorable daughters. From a dark corner room which he calls his den, he produces all of his music using his home studio setup.
