Ankur is a Sydney, Australia based hip-hop artist with pop/rock influences. Not one to shy away from wearing his heart on his sleeve, Ankur has a natural talent for creating emotionally authentic songs that resonate deep with his listeners. Blending thoughtful lyrics, catchy melodies, and rock-infused vocal lines, Ankur paints beautifully dark emotional soundscapes that capture both the power and vulnerability that can be found in all of us.
Ankur’s strength as musician lies in the depth of his lyrics, which he bases on a foundation of ideas inspired by self-improvement, introspection, and the desire to empower his listeners to move forward from the place they are standing still. For Ankur, music is a conscious journey through a dark place with a guiding light at the end of the tunnel; a hopeful place filled with warmth.
Ankur’s interest for writing lyrics sparked at a young age, but he only rekindled his connection with the process later in his life after feeling like something was missing within the daily grind of trying to succeed in today’s progressive-minded world. By writing lyrics, he found a way to process his struggles, and started the journey of crafting his own sound. In 2015, Ankur released his firstEP Inner Reflections. The highlights of the album include the bouncy hip hop banger ‘I’m Here,’ the heavily lyrical-minded ‘Free,’ and the spacey ‘Mind Made’.
Ankur has since been working on brand new music, expanding his signature sound with a fresh influence of elements from both rock and pop music. His brand-new single ‘Last in line” off his most recent EP release titled ‘Shades’ has been gaining in popularity due to both it’s smooth production and authenticity of the message being given.
Currently booking shows, creating new music to share, and working overtime to reach out to the masses of awakening minds, Ankur has his eyes set on connecting with as many listeners as he possibly can; all in the hope that he can share his message of never letting go of your hope, and stay true to finding your own guiding light.
