Talented, unique and modern are just some of the words being used to describe this new band on the streets. Bedford based ‘The Loft’ are young, ambitious and passionate musicians which are definitely something to look out for. The Loft have just hit the industry with their debut live cover of the Gurdas Mann’s all time classic, Sajna Ve Sajna.

Their sound is like no other, fusing traditional Indian beats with western flavours. Unafraid to try something different, this unsigned Asian band comprise of six members all bringing their own ingredient to the table.

The Loft have just hit the industry with their debut live cover of the Gurdas Mann’s all time classic, Sajna Ve Sajna. The cover, filmed and recorded at home, has got many people talking including some of the industry’s finest artists. Their take of the cover showcases a slice of their versatility with a fresh, new and vibrant composition. Opening with mellow arrangement and then twisting the groove into a vibe which can only be described as ‘Desi Jazz’.

Vejay (Drums) said ‘Performing a cover of a timeless classic such as Gurdas Mann’s Sajna Ve Sajna was always going to be risky. But the response we’ve had from it has been amazing! We didn’t think we’d have such a good reaction. The support has been great. The track is just a sample of numerous items we are working on. We’re looking to release more live session videos and hopefully, before the end of the year, an EP. We’d like to thank those who are supporting us and hope for your continual support as more songs are released’.

All band members; Davz (Vocals), Vejay (Drums), Sanjeev (Bass), Luke (Keys), Andy (Tabla) and Stephan (Guitar) were introduced to music at a very young age. Individually, they have many years of experience under their belts but as a band they have just begun their musical career. Being friends before forming the band, they are all passionate about live music and love performing. Andy said, ‘We have learnt so much over the last year from our performances and rehearsals.

We always appreciate constructive feedback and always try to improve on that feedback’.

2012 is looking to be a busy but enjoyable year for The Loft with many plans in mind. You can catch The Loft on Facebook, ‘The Loft - Asian Music Experience’, Twitter ‘TheLoftBand’ and Youtube ‘TheLoftExperience’.

Is it me or does Jevi, San2 and this guy have the same vocal teacher? San2 is obviously the best of those 3, but too much UK-ness in all of their voices.

Just can't along with the UK-voice.

Pronounciation is one of the most difficult things for British artist to deal with. Even artists of today still get things wrong. Keep at it. You will get there slowly. Band has got talent and singer got a sweet voice. Just needs to clean up on pronunciation. Well done

Vocalist has got good potential just needs to work on punjabi otherwise. Good tone. Music compliments each other

Awesome music -- but very poor Punjabi. Many words incorrect, and mispronounced. A new vocalist would do the trick.
