Self-taught piano singer/songwriter. Kashy was named after a close family friend, the name is Persian meaning the soul. A quiet child, focused and driven from a young age, he grew shy and tired of competing for playground attention or popularity at school. Quietly determined, he began pitching ideas to magazines to try and further his writing and entered competitions in the hope of gaining recognition. The result was successful, and by the time he was fifteen he had interviewed most of the big pop stars of the time and even got the chance to interview famous film director Steven Spielberg. His biggest musical inspiration was being taught how to sing gospel music when he was 15. He attended a 12 week singing workshop run by The London Community Gospel Choir and was from then on hooked. For Kashy it’s about continuing to be a self contained artist. Being 100 percent involved in every aspect of writing and performing his songs. Above all, he believes that good songs are those that bring out the real person in someone, break down inhibitions and encourage the confidence in people to let go and be themselves. Using music to help empower others or to try and provide some form of hope, comfort or healing has always been at the core of what has driven Kashy to write songs. Recently Kashy's most successful song to date 'This Is My Dream', which was used in 2012 as a London Olympics song, has also topped the charts in Hong Kong reaching number 1 on the iTunes download chart and outselling international artists like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. His songs have achieved high ranking in many songwriting competitions, including the National UK Songwriting Competition and Songwriter Universe’s Best Vocalist and Best Song Of The Month competition.
