Dhruv Visvanath is a Singer-Songwriter, producer and accomplished acoustic guitarist from New Delhi, India. Having spent a large part of his childhood in various parts of the world like London, Zambia, Hong Kong, and Mumbai to name a few, Dhruv uses the collective experiences from his past to craft his songs and stories. In 2018, Dhruv was India’s only entrant to South By South West, Austin, Texas USA, and the Canadian Music Week in Toronto. His uniques style of playing the guitar led him to be mentioned as one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s 30 Great Guitarists Under 30, alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Laura Marling and many others. Under VLT records, Dhruv released his Debut album “Orion” in 2015. His sophomore release, “The Lost Cause,” released in 2018, was crowdfunded and released independently, debuting at #2 on iTunes Apple Music’s top 50 albums at the time of release. His unique style of playing the guitar allowed him to develop a relationship and an endorsement with the Dehradun Guitar Company in 2018, resulting in his own custom guitar he so lovingly calls, Willow.

The inspiration behind Dhruv’s music stems from a deep connection with his past experiences, often retelling his childhood experiences in colorful and inventive ways through his songs. At the age of 16, Dhruv lost his father to a heart attack, an event that flipped the fortunes of his entire family. Having since moved back to India, the pain of his father’s loss led him begin his journey as a songwriter. Through the love and support of his family, Dhruv has seen himself grow leaps and bounds not just as a performer, but as a musician and songwriter as well. His songs speak of the innocence of being younger, and the excess baggage we all carry as adults.

Dhruv continues to evolve as songwriter and producer, which is especially showcased in the work he’s done for numerous independent and mainstream films in the Indian cinematic landscape. In 2019 alone, Dhruv has written and produced for two independent films, as well as worked with the likes of Vishal Bharadwaj for his film “Sonchiriya” and A.R. Rahman for the exclusive Netflix release “Blinded By the Light”. He has also been involved in the production an upcoming video game by independent game developer Prashast Thapan, which is to be released in the coming year.

In 2020, from April onwards, Dhruv is set to release a brand new song every month for the next 6 months, and bringing with it the next step in his evolution as an artist.

“His latest album, The Lost Cause is an Independent effort, released on the 19th of April 2018, is rich in the colours of the world, often shifting between traditional folk music, rhythmic pop and tribal-based work of his home country of India. It’s earthy, accessible and dazzling” – Jason Scott.

“Everything Dhruv writes hits you straight in the feels, and ‘Wild’ is no exception. Absolutely brilliant.” – RandySlaugh (Composer, Arranger and Producer)

“Dhruv Visvanath’s ‘The Lost Cause’ is a true coming-of-age spiritual and emotional journey, a powerfully immersive acoustic folk-pop experience you won’t forget” – Atwood Magazine

“Dhruv plays guitar in a way I had only seen very few people play before. Plus, he is a songwriter and a singer, which always works for me. He has a unique voice, and a style that is all his. Also, you need to hear all 14 songs on Orion to really understand his thought process and story-telling! I love that in an artist.” – Vishal Dadlani

“Dhruv Visvanath’s story is an inspiring one… and you can feel and hear it in his music. His new song ‘Wild’ is an inspiring ballad that’ll leave you quite… speechless. It’s absolutely incredible. A world fueled by gentle, melodic guitars and moved by a vocal style that’ll send chills up and down your spine” – Gemsandsecrets

The Lost Cause is not just Visvanath at his diverse best , but it’s also growth at its finest. Whether you’re in a small room or at an open-air festival, this one’s going to hit just as hard – RollingStone
