Sumit Sadawarti is a self-taught jazz, blues and soul singer/songwriter who is heavily inspired by the vocal stylings of Amy Winehouse and Nina Simone. He is an advanced vocalist with an ability to inculcate complex melismas and riffs in his powerhouse voice which soars along to the light, rhythmic sound of the piano that he plays. His soulful voice is gifted with a perfect pitch. Sumit is a sophomore at Ashoka University, where he also heads the Broadway
Society. He was one of the Delhi finalists at The Korean Pop Culture Festival 2016, has performed for Youtube Indie Music Outreach and has also performed with The Performers’ Consortium and Hammer Talents. He is currently signed to a talent management agency in Delhi and does jazz gigs across the city. He was also featured as one of the up and coming artists in Delhi. With an offer already in hand to study jazz at Berklee College of Music, he is considering the possibility of starting his professional education in May 2017.
