Words by Nirmal Sidhu himself :
I was born in village Tehna, District Faridcot and I also grew up there. I belong to a middle class Jatt family with strict up bringing. I used to live near Gurdwara and I got inspired by listening to Kirtan/Gurbani. Since childhood I was interested in music. At the age of 12 Master Naginder Singh Chahal inspired me to learn more music and educate myself. Finally I finished Masters in Music. In 1987, my first song was broadcasted on Doordarshan, Jallandhar. That song enabled me to establish myself in the field off commercial music. Then onward most of my music was in the capacity of music director for various singers. In 2000, Lux Zee C Cine Award asked me to perform.
Since then, I have composed many audio, video albums and TV serials, as a Singer/Music Composer. A wide range of hit albums have covers under my direction.
I would to carry on making music bearing in mind, representing wider Indian culture, however not forgetting Northern culture at the same time. I would like to interact with wider audience because music industry and audience’s taste is changing rapidly, and I don’t want to be left behind. I would like to see that younger generation is connected with today’s music as well as enjoys classic, traditional and original music.
