Nikhil D'Souza is an Indian playback singer, songwriter and guitarist. He was the South Asia Soloist Winner at SUTASI '09. He made his playback singing debut in Rajshree Ojha's Aisha (film).
Nikhil D'Souza was born and brought up in Mumbai. He majored in Geology from St. Xavier's College, Mumbai. He is a talented guitarist and singer-songwriter from Mumbai, India. Nikhil’s genre and musical style can be loosely defined as eclectic acoustic guitar based pop. His songs have a full melodic quality to them due to his use of alternative tunings (favored by such artists as Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley). Nikhil's major musical influences have been Sting and Jeff Buckley.
Rolling Stones Music Magazine in India has favorably featured Nikhil’s music several times: Neha Sharma from Rolling Stone said “D’Souza’s strength as a songwriter is well established in his numerous gripping compositions. Most of his songs shiver with this arresting melancholy as his falsetto glides over twangy guitar riffs”. Uday Benegal, the host and initiator of Tuborg Acoustic Adventure TV series (which Nikhil performed for) was quoted in Rolling Stone as saying “Any new artist performing at Acoustic Adventures, needless to say, will be the best.” India Today also included Nikhil as part of their “Faces of the Future,” and he was recently featured on MTV’s COKE Studio series.
