Essex born R&B Singer, Rajiv is rapidly making waves on the UK music scene, with tracks such as ‘Back & Rewind’ which became very popular with fans online in 2011.

Rajiv’s love of music and his exotic good looks are owed to his Mauritian Father and Trinidadian Mother. His parents prided themselves on making sure Rajiv had a good education here in the UK and were very proud to see their son earn a 1st class honours degree in Multimedia at University.

During his time at University Rajiv honed his skills, not only as a singer, but also as a skilled producer. Soon after, the Asian Network Radio DJ Bobby Friction invited Rajiv to Birmingham onto his show and labelled him as Future Artist Of The Week.

Rajiv was later discovered by Audio Music Star, who hooked him up with Mis-Teeq and Nate James‘ producer, David Brant of Vybrant Music. Rajiv found himself locked in the studio, writing track after track. Together they penned the breakthrough track – ‘Back & Rewind’ – which whirled around the social networks, gaining over 50,000 views on Youtube alone and created a buzz with major labels. In late 2011, Rajiv was asked by GayTimes magazine to pose in support of Elton John’s AIDs Foundation and appeared within the pages of their ‘Naked Issue’ edition.

Already over half way through his debut album, Rajiv has been hooking up with other songwriters such as Doris Pearson (Five Star), Katerina Bramley (MadCon), Marvee Woods, and Funkiipapa (Ianna Harvey), alongside his producer David Brant, with a strong team of influential people behind him mixed with his own talents his Musical career is looking pretty exciting throughout the rest of 2013.
