He ventured into music by singing and playing in church choirs. His keen interest in guitar playing introduced him to different genres of music. After joining the band Schickados, Sylvester had the opportunity to work with other budding musicians, thus giving him space to write original material.
His father was a musician and composed 500 songs during his time, which is why Pradeep was always inclined towards music. “I was exposed to all his material since childhood. But, it was only after growing up I realised that music would be my career. However, my primary inspiration did come from my father”, he says.
The singer, who plays in three bands- Solder (Alt Folk), The Windoze (Blues) and The Sylvester Trio (experimental), started his journey as an instrumentalist and is currently working on material for his upcoming album, which will be a collaborative effort of all his bands. And while he is busy working on independent music, he also wants to foray into Bollywood. “Being a singer was not my primary focus earlier, but things have changed post ‘The Stage’. Now I want to be a singer-songwriter. So, I would like to work for Bollywood as well,” he added.
