Think of Lionel Richie, Santana & The Eagles blended together with the Indian tabla and sitar thrown in every now and again for spice. Interesting enough?

Biography

“You know you’ve connected with your listeners when you hear them humming your song, tapping their foot to the beat or singing along to the lyrics. That’s what it’s about isn’t it?”

This new exciting artist’s debut album: ‘Welcome to my world,’ relates to us all as it speaks of life and the things we experience. “Life can be pretty awesome but sometimes it’s just a bloody nightmare and at times all we want is a little understanding or for someone out there to know what we’re going through”.

His music has a combination of genres and styles. Certain songs feature the Spanish guitar as well as the Indian Sitar and Tabla. The piano backed ballads take you on a journey to the 80’s, with the guitars reminding you of the 70’s. “I missed most of the 80’s. I grew up listening to the Eagles, Bee Gees, Santana, Bad Company, Simon and Garfunkel, just to name a few. I listened to pretty much whatever my Father listened to. The little 80’s I did listen to was from the girl next door that was about ten years my senior…that didn’t stop me from having a crush on her!”

With regards to his music, Vishaun is very humble. Being the new kid on the block he realizes he has a long way to go, “I started writing as a hobby and it somehow flourished into an album. I’m by no means the greatest singer or songwriter out there. I’m just a guy doing his thing. I figure if I like my songs, then there will be others who may like them and if I can make a buck out of it, then why not? I’d like to keep on writing and singing. Life is such that there are so many interesting things to write about.”

Lyrics

A Place Called Home

Written By: Vishaun Kistan

A Place Called Home

Verse1

Been around the world, haven’t found a place that feels like home
I guess it’s time to be on my way, search another place for my own
Never been in one place long seems I always up and carry on
Haven’t felt the need to settle down coz I’m searching for a place to call my own

Chorus

But it’s alright, it’s ok, doesn’t matter if my search goes on
It’s never too late, too state, I finally found a place called home

Verse2

Think I’ll go and walk about in a place down under north to south
Ain’t sure what the future holds, I guess it doesn’t matter so I’ve been told
Searching to fill this empty hole coz my hearts turned hollow so is my soul
So I’ll search till I’m old, ain’t got no where else to go
And I’m sure I’ll find what I’m looking for as I keep on searching door to door

Chorus

But it’s alright, it’s ok, doesn’t matter if my search goes on
It’s never too late, too state, I finally found a place called home

Verse3

Walk down these dusty roads searching for a place to call my home
World is getting smaller day by day, soon they’ll be place that I could to stay

Chorus

But it’s alright, it’s ok, doesn’t matter if my search goes on
It’s never too late, too state, I finally found a place called home

I just need a break in my life a chance to make it in this world
Don’t tell me you don’t feel this way , I know I’m not the only one
How long must I live this way, I wish to see a better day

Looking up at the heavens wandering when will I be blessed for all the good

I just want to take things nice and slow tonight
Feel like things are getting out of hand it ain’t right

You gotta understand, before it’s too late

Missin your face and holding you feeling your close warmth

If you could only see how much I loooove you

Just how I love you
Filling my heart with joy

Show you I love you
I’d make your knees grow weak

Secrets of Love

Written By: Vishaun Kistan

SECRETS OF LOVE

Verse 1
How can a man like me ever be with you
Secrets of love is what’s unknown to me
Ways of the world reveal no simplicity
Molded by moors of our society

Chorus
Now what is a man to say
Whisper little lies to make you stay
Now what is a man to do
Spend a ton of money just on you

Verse 2
How can a girl like you ever be with me
Is this the love that’s meant to set us free
Let the words we stay stand true to be
Unlike the empty lines we’ve grown to hear

Chorus
Now what is a man to say
Whisper little lies to make you stay
Now what is a man to do
Spend a ton of money just on you

Bridge
Somebody tell me now
Somebody spell it out
Somebody let me know
Reveal the secret now

Chorus
Now what is a man to say
Whisper little lies to make you stay
Now what is a man to do
Spend a ton of money just on you

Bridge
Somebody let it out
Reveal the secret now

Chorus
Now what is a man to say
Whisper little lies to make you stay
Now what is a man to do
Spend a ton of money just on you
