Kristina Maria is not the only talented Canadian artist releasing an album on April 10. Calgary-raised Raghav‘s long-awaited third album, The Phoenix, will finally be launched thanks to Cordova Bay Records. Raghav’s first album, Storyteller, was released by The United Kingdom-based label V2. Five of its tracks peaked within the Top 15 of the official UK singles chart; in fact, Raghav was the only artist local or international to enjoy 3 Top 10 hits in Britain during the year 2004.
Being of proud Indian heritage, Raghav decided to release his second album in the second-most populated country in the world, India. The work was entitled Identity and included songs in both English and Hindi.
Now that Raghav had become a major name in Britain and India, he returned home to Canada to release his third album after a number of charting singles, his most successful being gold-certified “Fire” which made the Top 100 songs of the year in Canada last year and has the singer nominated for a couple of CRMA awards this year. “So Much” featured renowned Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall. Raghav’s latest single is “Top of the World”.
The Phoenix was produced by Labrinth (first artist signed to Simon Cowell’s label Syco) who produced the UK chart-topping single “Pass Out” for Tinie Tempah. Also producing on Raghav’s new album is Jim Beanz (Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears, Timbaland).
Raghav very smoothly incorporates elements of mainstream rock and roll, dance, R&B, rap, and Indian rhythms into his music and has fans from all over the world.
