Gandhi releases debut album, “Anjali”

Singer-songwriter Gandhi releases debut album “Anjali”

Singer-songwriter Nimesh Gandhi writes, produces and performs songs of melancholy, angst and hope. The Brooklyn, NY musician has been honing his skills for a decade, and now he’s ready to show the world what he’s learned.


“Anjali” is the result of that decision. A lofty, melodic album that soothes and croons its way into your heart. “Anjali” is a passport to a private world, one full of beauty that’s as unconventional as it is genuine.


Gandhi’s personal inspiration behind his new release is the desire to communicate hope for an intimate and meaningful relationship with a lover. Gandhi wants to present a concept where “the meaning”
of the song touches persons of any ethnic background, while at the same time, present it in a way that actually honors his own ethnic personal experience as a first generation American.


Gandhi’s songs beckon listeners to join him on a journey to new worlds and alternate possibilities. His songs are delivered on a bed of classic rock and roll riffs, folk melodies and minimalist electronica. A veteran of the New York music scene, on stage he is regularly surrounded by a rotating cast of familiar New York musicians. He is also a proficient musician with many different instruments. But no matter what he’s doing, Gandhi’s own guitar is never far away. Those experiences have helped him grow as an artist, and he is equally comfortable behind a guitar, or even singing alone.


Gandhi’s influences are of course other great singer-songwriters like John Lennon, but he also credits musicians like David Bowie, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, and U2 for helping shape his sound and vision.


The title track “Anjali” shows that influence. It’s a sweetly-melodic love letter, full of hope and optimism. Clever lyrical twists flit over a sonic dreamscape that’s earnest and touching. One listen, and you’ll wish the journey of “Anjali” would never end.
