With his unique voice, punchy lyrics and rhythm-driven beats, singer and songwriter Inder Kooner announces himself as a solo artist. As a prominent member of En Karma since 2007, probably North America’s most successful Bhangra band, Inder has played at some of the top venues supporting some of the biggest names of Punjabi music including Shin DCS, Apna Sangeet, Heera, KS Makhan and Malkit Singh. In 2012, Inder and En Karma opened the ‘Maharajas’ tour for Jazzy B and Sharry Maan in North America to further cement their position as the best live band around!
Inder, who’s past projects include duets with KS Makhan (“Anakh Naal Din Katteye”) and H Dhami (“Tere Bina Nahi Nachna”), as well as the solo track ”Dil Khush Kardey” on the Kalikwest Connected Vol.1 album in 2012, has come a long way since he started his career singing ‘Boliyaan’ for the United Bhangra team in Vancouver. This in turn led to the recording of his first track “Lagdi Pyaari” for DJ Sanj’s ‘America’s Most Wanted 4’ album way back in 2006 which gave him the bug to become a Punjabi singer.
In the start of 2013 Inder released his first solo single ‘Gut Nagni’ which went straight to #1 in the Canadian iTunes chart. ‘Gut Nagni’ which has been recorded in Canada and England during the summer of 2012 finds Inder Kooner leading from the front as he showcases his versatility as a vocalist as well as his choice of lyrics and song for his own intimate project. “I’ve dedicated a lot of time, effort and energy to this album which I’m sure you guys will appreciate and have on repeat!” Confidence for sure, but just the thinking needed to make his mark on the Bhangra scene worldwide.
