DEBUT SONG - JUDAI
Concept / lyrics / composition / arrangement / mixing / guitars and vocals – By Kamran Ahmed.
The song is based on the story of musician, who turns away from his love to pursue his musical career, reaching a point of fame and success but absolute loneliness. Slumbered nights at the mixing desk would often bring nightmares of his abandoned love, when one night he puts out his feelings musically.
UPCOMING – 82ROCKER – ALBUM TRACKS
There is a lot of material and all I need is time to blend all that together. Being a rock guitar player, I have a rock version of my debut track “Judai” in store, but probably my next session would be an unplugged version of “Judai” as per listener’s requests.
Producing guitar tracks and arrangement for certain Dubai based bands and artists, along with international foreign music groups.
