Released at the tail-end of August, Sidharth is an identity-confronting project framed by Sid’s moving vocalizations and experimental production that tows the line of genres such as R&B, indie rock, and American Pop, that surrounded him growing up as an immigrant kid in Fremont, CA, in the ‘90s and 2000s. The album’s creation process was unlike any other he had undertaken before, with a significant difference being that the vocals are delivered in English. In the summer of 2021, he took a leap of faith and hopped on a plane to Minneapolis to work with producer Ryan Olson (Poliça, Gayngs, Bon Iver), whom he had previously only met on Instagram. The project was recorded during an intense week in the studio, with most of the songs being tracked live by a small team of Olson’s associates, including Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, a longtime inspiration for Sid. Sid’s sincerity and passion bleed through his recordings, offering a one-of-a-kind, compelling live performance fit for the world stage.
