Coming off the back of his first live show on the Fair Day main stage at Mardi Gras, Sydney based artist ESHAAN (pronounced ISH-AHN), is starting to bring his world of music and art to life.
The name ESHAAN symbolises triumph through sadness, and understanding one’s purpose as they navigate their way through the world. The name brings forth the ability to destroy in order to recreate, and represents both the blessing and weakness in the ability to detach from defeat, and concentrate on what will physically, spiritually and mentally heal.
Using music as a platform to share his journey, ESHAAN seeks to create an alternate world, where one can visualise and understand their feelings in a new context. Inspired by all that makes up the universe, and how we react and engage to everything within, ESHAAN’s songwriting draws upon his personal experiences, whilst looking to further explore what many others have endured in a similar space.
ESHAAN’s lyrics display a candid vulnerability, whilst also employing a complexity that allows a deeper meaning to unfold upon each listen. Armed with over ten years of musical experience, ESHAAN has taken influence from artists such as Troye Sivan, Tove Lo, Khalid, BENEE, CXLOE, ASHWARYA, Tora, Vera Blue, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and FLETCHER. Utilising a melting pot of sound within his tracks, ESHAAN’s music blurs the lines between RnB, pop, indie, and electronic.
