The 1LuvMusic Label delivers a brand new artist for Bhangra lovers across the globe. Junior Maan was born to sing but took some time to realise it!
The Birmingham based artist began his life in the music industry as a lyricist. With numerous songs under his belt, this Punjabi poet has been supplying the words for some huge hits including DJ Sanj (Chugliyan) and Miss Pooja (Lak De Hullare) amongst others.
Although he has been singing since the age of 16, it wasn’t until very recently that he bowed under the pressure of family and friends and grabbed the microphone to record professionally. Employing the musical genius of Bee2 led to the birth of his debut single ‘Hasdi’.
An amazing high definition video accompanies the track and was shot in a house belonging to a very famous actor, although the identity will remain a mystery!
Junior was raised on a varied musical diet. His influences stretch across a number of genres from folk to dance and some of his biggest influences were Master Saleem, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Babbu Maan.
The multi-talented Junior spends much of his time listening to and learning from different styles of music and as a professional Harmonium player, he attempts to use his instruments to delicately fuse together these new sounds with more traditional beats. Keep your ears open for more news on Junior Maan, he’ll be coming to a venue near you soon!
‘Hasdi’ is released on the 1LuvMusic Label and will be available via iTunes from 25th October 2012.
