From UK singer to a worldwide brand, Jaz Dhami has now become one of the most well known UK Punjabi vocalists around the globe. We go through his career up to date - going through the key songs which have to this meteoric rise!
Jaz Dhami first came into the public spotlight working with no other than Aman Hayer on the massive album Groundshaker 2! The album featured the likes of Jazzy B, Hardkaur & Apache Indian, however it was the song 'Sadi Jind Jaan' which captured peoples' imagination. The song was Jaz Dhami's debut vocal performance!
From the release of Sadi Jind Jaan, Jaz quickly went to work on his debut solo album - which released in summer 2009. The album was preceded by a number of videos & singles - one of which was the long awaited 'Theke Wali' - 'Theke Wali' was the dancefloor anthem that many singers try to achieve throughout their careers. Produced again by Aman Hayer, Theke Wali quickly became Jaz's most popular song.
'Bari Der' was a single that broke barriers for Jaz Dhami as it highlighted not on his excellent vocal ability, but showed he could also sing slower numbers, rather than rely on upbeat-dancefloor singles. 'Bari Der' became a personal favourite song for many people and it's hard to argue why!
Once Jaz Dhami's album was released, he went on somewhat of an hiatus for a few years, not content with simply conquering the UK market, Jaz went away to work on a follow up album that would launch him to a much larger audiance..
Almost three years after the release of his solo album, Jaz delivered the now iconic 'High Heels' featuring Yo Yo Honey Singh. The single catapulted Jaz Dhami into a worldwide artist, ensuring he was booked out from Canada to Delhi to Australia seemingly every week! Having now accumlated 13 million youtube hits, and becoming one of the most watched videos in India of 2012, it's fair to say 'High Heels' was a massive hit!
2013 has already seen Jaz Dhami announce huge collaborations with French Monatana, Steel Banglez & Dr Zeus just to name a few. It's fair to say his forthcoming album is to be one of the most anticipated releases of recent times. Alongside this, the single 'Mein Punjabi Boli Ah' with music maestro Jatinder Shah has further shown the versatility & growth as an artist of Jaz Dhami, which will surely be further highlighted on future releases.
