HOW IT ALL BEGAN
With the release of his much awaited debut album, In Tokens & Charms, in January 2015, India born singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad firmly established himself as one of the frontrunners in the Indian independent music scene.
Having toured extensively around India, he has also performed in New York, Nashville, Austin, Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, Toronto etc playing festivals such as Midem (2017), SXSW (2016), CMW (2016), BIGSOUND (2016), Music Matters (2016), Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix (2016) and as the support act for Alt J and Mike Posner’s India tours. Live, Prateek recreates a warmth and vulnerability that has become his signature, effortlessly blending his folk-pop sensibilities with heartbreaking lyrical irony.
He has focused on the environment his music is experiences in by booking intimate auditoriums and amphitheater’s for the launch of his album, In Tokens & Charms. The album and shows were received with rave reviews including being picked as the Indian Indie Album of the Year by iTunes. The last year has seen him sell out venues across India, be awarded the Best India Act at the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards, win first place in the singer songwriter category of the 2016 International Songwriting Competition, and finally sign a publishing deal with LA based company Cutcraft Music where he joins the likes of Nick Murphy (Chet Faker), Izzy Bizu and CP Dubb as part of their roster.
