About Arun Chaturvedi
From CBG Artist Development, the same incubator that has nurtured some of the planet’s most prolific songwriter/producers and artists - including Chantal Kreviazuk, Luke McMaster and Chris Burke-Gaffney, comes Arun Chaturvedi.
Some may remember Arun as the front man for Canadian modern rock group “Driver”, who performed the 2006 radio hit “She Laughed at Me”. Since that time, you’d likely find the classically trained pianist behind the mixing console as the “go – to” record producer/songwriter for a host of up and coming artists including Darrelyne Bickel (YTV's Next Star), Don Amero (Male Artist of the Year and Best songwriter at CDN Folk Music Awards), Juno nominated Little Hawk and many more.
Now, Arun is set to release his first solo recording, a beautiful collection of sparse, piano based songs about real people with real lives who share their most inner secrets and souls.
“My musical influences are vast and many”, says the easy going Canadian. “Obviously the classic songwriters, Carole King, Leonard Cohen, James Taylor...but I also can't help but borrow from the great composers, Debussy, Beethoven, and Chopin. I'm constantly being inspired and challenged. For me, music is all about communication. My ultimate goal is to convey the emotion of the song. As human beings, we have so much in common. I think music is the perfect vehicle to express the emotions we all share. The hopes, dreams and fears...they are the common thread that runs through us all.”
Watch for Arun's Self Titled EP, Summer 2010.
