Kabir’s musical prowess and unshakeable self-assurance stem from his upbringing in a close-knit and musical family. His paternal lineage includes the world-renowned group of Indian artists, the Partap Brothers, and growing up surrounded by their sounds inspired Kabir to pursue his own musical path. Over the course of his adolescence, he discovered the power of his singing voice and developed an eclectic taste in music, ranging from the classical Indian styles of his family heritage to American classics and contemporary music—all of which inform the Pop and R&B sounds that define his style today.
Following college graduation, Kabir moved to New York City to work as a Financial Analyst for Bloomberg LP. But the pull of his dream to pursue music only intensified with time. At the age of 25, he decided to take a life-changing risk, quitting his job and turning all of his attention to his art. Kabir’s mission is clear: to introduce his distinctive look and sound to the world, and expand public conceptions of what modern Pop and R&B can be. He aims to surprise and enthrall his audiences, infusing each moment with music and rhythm. Today you can find Kabir in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, single-mindedly striving towards his goal, carrying the venerable Partap musical legacy into the future.
Watch out for Kabir’s first single, “Got Me Hooked,” written and produced by Damen Heyward and Juan “Majik” Peters, and set for release on Friday, May 18th, 2018.
