The Meteoric rise of Jaz Dhami

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 5.00 (1 Vote)

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.

JK has a punjabi folk style of singing. Jaz Dhami is definitely not folk and tailors his style to appeal to the UK crowd. Folk singing is true punjabi singing. JK has greater respect amongst people who know REAL punjabi music. Btw, the average kid from the uk doesn't know real punjabi vocals these days.

To ChinaJatt:

How the [censored] can Tru Skool teach a singer when he can't even sing himself. Released one song were he IMITATED a vocal style.

That's all JK does.. IMITATE a vocal style, all his songs are the same singing style, sad, slow or dance.

JK will never be big in India if he sticks with these one dimensional people around him.

Jaz Dhami has already sung in more different styles than JK can dream of, because JK has only been taught in ONE WAY.

Dumbass.

if jk sang this track it would of been a banger jaz dhami does no do it for me hs vocals are not folkish enough for this track beside i thought jazdhami was trying to hit bolywood as a play back singer did that plan fail???


Lets be real. JK aint fit to wipe Jaz Dhamis shoes when it comes to VOCAL Ability & Versatility.

JK sings one straight style. He's basically a very good imitator, but thats just the way he's been taught.


jk is a trained singer i dont hink you know much about him he was trained classical by sukhjit olk aka tru skool and by pritam singh i found this by finding it out jaz dhami is sounds a little girl singing lol if there was a singing contest jk would beat jaz dhami anyway but that my opinion not ever has the same so ...


Uh oh here come the tru skool fan boys

People dont understand he is working with lots of different producers so each single released will be different he is just showing he can sing any type of song and the album should prove this when it releases

The guys pronunciation of punjabi is not all that. He has a lisp also D sarb does also hs even worse. I dont know how anyone can listen to so called UK born artists like Jassi Sidhu Jaz Dhami etc. Jaz Dhami live is cut out by his backing music. Saw him at a wedding we all were shouting speak up we cant hear you to whci his face went red really embarassed. I cannot understand what he is saying on the High Heels track. Its the music that bacame a hit and Honey Singh being on the track not Jaz Dhamis Vocals. Please Jaz give up i cannot take this assault on my ears anymore.

Not enough people know him yet. He's making the right moves/collabora tions but he still has a long way to go.

I wish him luck. Definitely a talented UK singer that deserves the recognition.

I loved his track "Mein Punjabi Boli Ah". While his track "High heels" is mainly build on Honey Singhs star-power the "Mein punjabi boli ah" is solely Jaz Dhami and great production from the producer of cause.

I liked "High Heels" but not Jaz Dhami's vocals on the track. But man i love his latest track.

As Realist mentioned he was made out to be a finished product. I personally feel his "sadi jind jaan" is probably the most overrated song ever. Never liked it and it didn't show what he was capable of. There is another track by Jaz Dhami on a punjab based album, he really shows what he is capable of on that track as well.

I'm definitely looking forward for his next release :-)

When he released his first single he was made out to be the finished product; like he was the perfect artist, now after his last single he's once again being made out be the finished product...what i see is that in the start he was good (better than most) now hes very good (still better than most)hes improving after every release (like an artist should) what he needs to improve now in my opinion is his pronunciation and also test his vocal capabilities to be classed as great...no hate, i bought his last single love the positive message and i respect how hes made big smart moves in the industry...he just needs to stop being put on a pedestal after every release
