Raza A. Bashir - artist and producer
Growing up, I was exposed to many genres of music and multi-national influences. As a teenager, I always wanted to learn more about music and audio production; but my parents discouraged me from taking music courses or joining a band because they wanted me to focus more on my academic subjects. I always felt that there was a part of me that yearned for music creation; but I never got to express that desire until a few decades later. That is, well after establishing my career as an automotive designer. Having strummed a guitar for many years, a friend convinced me that I ought to consider having a home studio for myself. I fell in love with recording using the latest techniques and that resulted in "Razzy Bash". I'm a Metro-Detroit based one-man-band and producer. Detroit has a rich heritage in both music and cars. - I love both and that's why I consider Detroit my home.
What's up with the name:
Razzy Bash (tm) is a nickname derived from my actual name, Raza Bashir. I figured I was razzed all my life and thought why not make a big bash of it.
Got anything recorded?
"Loitering in the Left Lane" - the debut album was release last year. It's all about having cool driving music, music for sketching, crafting, working and working-out.
Tell us your future?
Razzy Bash will be producing new releases - both audio and video in the upcoming months.
Next Show: Every weekend, I jam on the next big thing. Video footage will be available on YouTube.
Comments: On a very personal level, I love when music helps me think and reminds me of old times and acts as a soundtrack to my life. I believe that instrumental music is the universal language. Inspired by musical scores for car chases, 70s spy and action movies, 80s rock, 90s dance beats, and many sounds of my youth, I offer this debut album, "Loitering in the Left Lane", to you for your listening pleasure. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have producing it for you. Thank you.
