So just where do you put Singh’s music? What kind of music does he play? Is it Folk, Acoustic Rock, Americana, Country Rock or something along those lines. The fact is, you can’t put it anywhere. Navi Singh has created his own style. His absorption of multiple genres has fused together. It’s the type of music you can listen to and reflect on yourself through innovative musical theory and imaginative lyrical poeticism.
Singh’s music is not complex. It’s original. And because it’s not complex, anyone can appreciate it. He uses basic chord progressions but allures the listener with his talent in deep verse. As far what makes him distinctive goes, I guess it would have to be his voice, or maybe his guitar style. It’s really hard to decide. That’s what makes him so intriguing. You can attempt to compare him to other artists, but really he has a sound all of his own. His music is for everyone. There is no one who won’t appreciate it.
When days are pretty stressful and people get on your nerves, Singh’s music is a great choice for chilling out. Sometimes it is good to take a break from electric distortion and screaming vocals and just take a second listen to how beautiful a guitar can sound and enjoy the chill factor of this music.
He is so relaxed, but takes nothing for granted and it definitely shows through his music. Those who don’t see the genius in Singh’s soulful simplicity are missing the point. What appears to be a bunch of somewhat repetitive chords and basic rhythm structures is really a collection of unique textures and moods that are conveyed so beautifully, they’ll move you. Navi Singh’s songs are raw and genuine goods – no additives thrown in! He is the real deal. He pulls no punches and he ain’t faking it.
