DecibelLk: About you

Surith: I’m a product of St. Joseph’s College Colombo. I’m currently working as a Coordinator at iflix Sri Lanka while following my higher studies. I have a million hobbies and writing songs would be right at the top.

DecibelLK: Have you been singing for a while now

Surith: I have been singing for a while but I’ve never really had a chance to pursue the musician in me properly at least till now.

DecibelLK: Influences?

Surith: I listen to a lot of Classic Rock like Led Zeppelin, CCR, Rolling stones etc. I’m a sucker for good lyrics. So Bob Dylan is a favorite naturally. I also follow up on local artists and rock bands.

DecibelLK: Do you produce your own music or do you have a producer you work with?

Surith: I produce my own music at the moment.

DecibelLK: About your single

Surith: The song was written and composed almost soon after schooling somewhere in 2014. Finally found some time to perfect the song, get it recorded and do a simple video for it. The theme of the song is about War in general, with a little bit of history and a few metaphors to draw comparison.

DecibelLK: What does the rest of 2017 have In store for peeps who dig your music

Surith: I have two more songs that I’ve written that I would love to have recorded the moment I find time.
