03/5​Challenges of the journey

Every musical journey comes with its own fair share of challenges. Shedding light on the same, Gurdeep said, “It took me about 6 months. My EP has a unique twist since it has songs that cut across genres showcasing range and versatility, which is not usually the norm. The challenge was to align key stakeholders and make everyone understand that it’s not just a regular EP with one sort of music. My thought process is that if I can sing different genres, then why just go with one type of format? There’s no right or wrong. I guess when the EP drops, the audience reaction will tell it all. Fingers crossed!”
