Prosody is a 5 member band based out of Pune.
The band comprises of –
• Abhay on Rhythm Guitars / Vocals
• Kirti on Lead Guitars
• Sumit on Bass
• Andy on Vocals
• Angad on Drums
Each of us came down to Pune with the purpose of studies and hence ended up in the same college – Symbiosis. Common interests clashed and our band was formed.
We have been together for over 4 years now and find ourselves on a motivating growth trajectory.
Like most other bands we started playing a variety of so called “popular” bands and hence went through covering extreme genres like that of Metallica to Pearl Jam. However Over the time as we started creating our Own Composition. Things were much more clear as to where we were Heading. This was the sound of Prosody, a unique mix of Subtle, Funky restless Rock with a pinch of blues in it …. So we came to be
However, Post the Finals of Campus Rock Idols 2008 was when we felt a need to explore the World Of studio Recordings and Got some of our songs Recorded from The Best of Sound Geniuses in India. Nitin Joshi – (Sound Ideaz - Pune ) helped us a great deal in the Studio and not to mention Rajesh Nair (Man Behind most of the Delhi Rock Scene) for Mixing the songs to perfection . With their Help we could come out with some descent stuff.
One of our songs – “Morning View” was featured in the Rolling Stones Feb 2009 issue as a must have artist song.
Some of our influences are Pearl Jam, JJ Cale & Zee Avi( our lyrical influences), John Mayer( from where our blues and funk has been inspired), etc.
All in all, with the kind of commitment Prosody has put into making music, we are confident of going a long way.
