Melbourne based, Delhi raised,Tokyo born Singer-Songwriter-Multi Instrumentalist and Producer Avi Misra melds east and west, old and new into his own brand of 21'st Century Alternative Music. Driven by Bluesy grooves, Hindustani sensibilities and Electronic experimentations - Misra's songs are vivid, soulful and cinematic.
Starting out as an acoustic balladeer in India's underground music scene more than a decade ago, Misra shared the stage with a motley crew of musos that headlined as Avi And The Uprising. His debut album 'Eyes On The Radio' was released in 2014 to critical acclaim and the band hit the road for a 3 city tour partnered with MTV Indies and Blue Frog.
Misra has since hit the Australian music scene with nationwide radio airplay and strong shows along the East Coast from The Tote to The Brisbane Powerhouse. He released a retrospective solo acoustic live CD 'New Delhi Blues' in 2018 and his folktronica concept album album 'Usha' with a six city India-Australia Tour in 2019.
He released his Melbourne themed darkwave album 'Sketches By The Birrarung' at The Tote in February 2020 right before the pandemic hit. These days, he can sometimes be spotted with a Jumbo acoustic at Swanston Street when not teaching or producing commissioned works.
