There is much more to this singer-songwriter than meets the eye. A software engineer by training, he put in his papers a year into his first cushy job to pursue his passion- making music. He went on to study at the Audio Media Education wing of A.R. Rahmanâ€™s K.M. Conservatory and thereafter, at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune. Pratyul was adjudged the Best Rock Vocalist at the Delhi International Music Festival in 2009. Now based in Mumbai, Pratyulâ€™s skills as a sound recorder and mix engineer fetch him his living. Music got him through the monotony of engineering college for sure, but soon enough became the calling of his life.
A self-taught musician, Pratyulâ€™s music comes straight from his heart, drawing upon his wanderlust trails across India and flowing through his disarmingly emotive self. The smooth talker belies his intense core that embraces the artistâ€™s struggle contentedly and follows his passion with courage.
“An opportunity to listen to good music.. Thanks ”
“आज 10 बजे के करीब टिकट आरक्षण के लिए बोरीवली स्टेशन गया था. छोटे भाई मनोज का लोकल टिकट काउंटर पर इंतज़ार कर रहा था, तभी ढोलक के साथ किसी के गाने की आवाज़ सुनाई पड़ी, वो भी सुरीली, बरबस मैं उस ओर चला गया. देखा एक छोटा से मंच पर दो कलाकार बैठे तल्लीन गीत-संगीत की गंगा बहा रहे हैं.बहुत ही अच्छा लगा....हर तरफ शोर-तनाव के बीच सुरीला, मन को आनन्द विभोर कर देने वाला सगीत...बहुत ही दिलकश लगा. NSAP को इस आयोजन श्रृंखला के लिए बधाई!!!”
