BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

I don't prefer to confine the description of my music in terms of any particular genre or something; simply because I'm influenced by a wide specturm of styles, of so many artists around the globe and more importantly, I like to leave it to the audience to decide.

Biography

21 year old Rahul Bhatt plays the guitar, writes, composes and performs his own songs. Phew! So what's the big deal about that? He was one of the finalists at the ‘Unisong International Song Contest', initiated by the top songwriters in the music industry. Out of the 5000 entries from over 50 countries, Rahul did India proud with his pop ballad Sailing Away.

Rahul also received a letter of appreciation from the Great American Song Contest, who rated him 8 and above, out of 10, for his song. So how did he hear about these contests? "I wanted to go to Berkley College of Music, Boston which is like the dream college of every musician. So I enquired what can I do to get a scholarship. They forwarded me this mail and after browsing through the various links I came across songlink.com." And the rest as they say is history.

A student of the School of Audio Engineering, Mumbai he began formal training in Indian classical vocals but later his inclination started shifting to Western music. How so? "It was Bryan Adams. I listened to “Heaven” and that just did it for me."

Future plan includes a singing and songwriting course at the Musicians Institute, LA beginning in September. He owes it to his parental support. "They have more confidence in me than I have in myself." So next time when you are playing around with your toy guitar in front of the mirror, take it seriously as Rahul did.

Lyrics

" Sailing Away "

Written By: Rahul Bhatt

Sitting here, and the sound of silence,

Fills the room and the emptiness in me,

I've strived to be, a man with a vision,

There's something more .....

I think I'd rather see ....

I'm Sailing Away .....
Day after Day .......

But I'm just Drowning .....

Walking through, the passages I've strolled,

I came across, the child I lost years before,

He said to me, shedding all those tears .....

Break Away ......

The walls that you Behold !!!

I'm Sailing Away ...
Day After Day .....

But I'm just Drowning ....

But ..... I'm just Drowning ....

" Divine Majesty "

Written By: Rahul Bhatt

Verse :

On his transcendental throne,
He sits to pluck the strings of gold,

in the key of revelation,
they oscillate a resonation ...

... of the cosmic melody,
that hides the notes of humanity;

Oblivious to the consciousness,
Silenced by the mortal deafness;

Too Blind to see what he knows,
Bewildered are his zillion souls !

Chorus :

He created the Clef of Mankind,
We drew the Lines of Religion

Yet; in the spaces, he tries to find,
the consonance of our cognition.

Verse :

On his transcendental throne,
the eyes capture a spinning stone.

He Falls upon a snowy cushion,
Shocked beyond recognition.

O .... he dreamt to take them higher !
but they stained his only sapphire;

Haunted by their wicked wisdom,
He knows, will taint his celestial kingdom,

Takes, at once, a firm decision,
to leave them upto their condition.

Chorus :

He created the Clef of Mankind,
We drew the Lines of Religion

Yet; in the spaces, he tried to find,
the consonance of our cognition.

" Wasted I feel !!! "

Written By: Rahul Bhatt

Verse :

Shades unfold; of black and white,
As delusions mould; the rays of light.

The lamp keeps burning,
but I'm still blind .....
locked in cages of time !!!

Screams of the unspoken,
sleep inside a grave;
Castles of truth sunken,
in depths of the demon's wave.

Chorus :

Waking up for something that's unreal,
Wasted I feel .........

Spins a life around the liar's wheel,
Wasted I feel ........

Verse :

I've been told, all roads unwind,
to his door; I knock to find ...

There's no answer,
No one to hear !!!
Still we live in his fear !!!

Mantles of myth darken,
the path to a heathen trail;

Where blood stained with vows broken,
Pours down the Holy grail !!!

Chorus :

Waking up for something that's unreal,
Wasted I feel .........

Spins a life around the liar's wheel,
Wasted I feel ........

Bridge :

Wounds of betrayal would heal in time
but its scars won't disappear,

An abused faith cries to avenge the crime ....
but the tears cease before they could hear

Chorus :

Waking up for something that's unreal,
Wasted I feel .........

Spins a life around the liar's wheel,
Wasted I feel ........
