Roshan Varghese, a compulsive Do-er, likes to express himself through his words and music. He has been writing since the age of 12 in both English and Hindi and discovered the joys of playing music at 19. He finds both lyrical and musical inspiration in the works of Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Jack White, John Mayer, Pink Floyd, and Gulzar, amongst others. His first book, a graphic novel titled City of Dreams and Nightmares – Volume Zero, was published in Dec 2015. The second book, a collection of poems titled Obolus, was released in Jun 2017. Both books have been well received by their niche audiences. Musically, Roshan started his journey as a bass player, composer, and lyricist, performing with several bands in Bombay and Pune. His recent venture as a solo artist, wherein he not only composed and performed but also recorded and mixed, resulted in an instrumental album Turn Right to go Left, which was released in Jun 2017. It was lauded for its melodic compositions and underlying melancholy. The second album, Time Bound Wings, was released in Feb 2018, which was appreciated for it's diverse influences and completeness.
Music is my outlet. It is the voice inside my head. It takes me to a different plane and offers conversation and solace.
To offer the same companionship to my listeners that my heroes offer to me.
Smiling more often... Taking more chances... Forgiving...

My inability to express my most honest emotions
Lose yourself to find yourself.
It's a really nice platform where musicians tend to reach out and communicate...
Lack of professionalism in the music industry
I attend most local gigs and try to connect with the musicians around me.
Professionalism... most bands/musicians are too busy being cool to be respectful and courteous. There is a serious lack of time and people management skills amongst musicians which is detrimental to their growth.
