(!) Could you tell us about your training in Music and how you decieded to choose singing as a profession?
=> I have never taken any singing training. I was so influenced by the music to an extent that in childhood I spent all of my play-time rehearsing my favorite tunes and this is how I have developed my vocals. I choose this profession because I have been very much passionate for music from my childhood. Firstly I am good listener and whenever I listens songs I goes deep into it.
(!) Which type of Music you love personally?
=> Basically I love Smooth music and R&B i.e. Rhythm and blues.

=> I like “Ik Supna” the most, it’s a latest track and I have worked on it about six months.
(!) Things you love to do except singing?

=> I am working on a Single track, which will be release in between two months.
(!) Is there any reality in ‘Ik Supna’?
=> Yes, ‘Ik Supna’ is a real song.
(!) Any message to your fans out there?
=> Firstly, Thanks for your love and support. You made me what I am. Our team tried something unique in terms of music, in terms of video also and you all loved it. I want to change the face of Punjabi Industry. Like other Punjabi songs we haven’t used cars, we haven’t tried other techniques. From my songs I want to make changes in our industry. And from my fans I only need love and support so that I can work like this in future also.
(!) Is there anything else you’d like to say?
=> I only want to say that, when I sung ‘Akhiyan Nu Akhiyan Ch’ from movie ‘Jatt & Juliet 2’ at that time the response was good but public relates it to Superstar Diljit Dosanjh. But in “Ik Supna” there is no established model, no famous lyricist penned the lyrics, no renowned director helmed this project, inspite of all this ‘Ik Supna’, got such a wonderful response from the public. It’s an achievement for me, this response was unexpected. Our team work made this track successful. And in the end thanks to all my listeners 🙂 🙂
‘YoungIndia’ wishing “Amber Vashisht” good luck for his bright future.
