Acknowledging that each of us has a priceless gift that we must harness and share with the world, Bashiri has come to define his sound as “Indy-Soul”. From shoo-wop style singing groups and classical vocal training, to performances local and abroad, his vocal prowess has been growing into the soul-stirring entity it is known as today. The influences of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding echo in his performance, and those coupled with his own strength and passion have come together to create soul music. Seeking to join the ranks of other indie-soul artists looking to breathe new life into the scene, Bashiri has begun to make a name for himself not just in the Circle City, but around the country. Bashiri’s infectious passion for the art of music and authenticity in performance is making him a familiar name on the independant music scene. Bashiri stops by on Wednesday, 11/7 at 7pm EST to discuss his latest release, "Living the Dream" and smash single, "Looking Back".

Up-and-coming soul crooner Bashiri Asad reveals how he went from a mere hired musical hand to full-fledged artist. “I started off in a couple of party bands in my hometown of Indianapolis. I was at a show once and I’d just come offstage and was sitting in the bar talking to some friends when someone came up over to me and whispered in my ear, ‘You know, they’ll respect you more if you write your own music,’” he tells Jammin Jukebox Radio host Delta Dawn. “That stuck with me. I’d never written a song before, but over the next few months I wrote 10—and they all went on my first album.”
