Mumbai, 5th October 2021: Sahil Dhandhia is a singer-songwriter in Hindi and English based in Mumbai. He graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University following which he worked in the family diamond trade for 10 years.

The honest lyrics based on Sahil’s own musical journey, along with the catchy melody, are deeply relatable to people who have faced similar struggles. 16th September was Sahil’s birthday and was also the day he officially announced himself as a professional musician 3 years ago, hence this release has a special place in his heart.
Sahil got together with the super-talented music producer, Tallz, to create this motivational piece of music. It was only after the entire song was recorded in the studio that Sahil realized that Tallz was his next-door neighbour!
While talking about the song Sahil said, “I was stuck in Jaipur for a month in April 2021 due to the pandemic getting crazy in Mumbai. I figured I should be productive whilst there, and was lucky enough to get in touch with a talented group of film-makers led by Ashwat Mathur, who captured the essence of the song so meaningfully with the beauty of Rajasthan in the backdrop”.
About the song Sahil further adds, “Apart from getting a music video and album art made to portray the humble message of the song, I have brought on-board some mental health professionals to publically discuss what upcoming musicians can do to overcome feelings of depression, anxiety and rejection in their early music days”.
4 years ago, Sahil decided to drop everything and pursue his passion for music and hasn’t looked back since. It has been a roller-coaster ride thus far and he looks forward to all the adventures that are yet to come on this musical journey.
