Atlanta, GA — Thursday, March 17, 2022 — 11x-GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY Award-winning producer/artist Kabir Sehgal celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month 2022with a new collection of pop songs on his latest EP, Unfolding (Tiger Turn, eOne/Release Date: May 6, 2022). Unfolding features the Indian-American producer Sehgal in collaboration with BIPOC women vocalists including GRAMMY-nominated Nicole Zuraitis, founding member Ariana Savalas of Postmodern Jukebox, Sonna Rele (featured on Disney’s Cinderella movie soundtrack), and soul-singer Leah Harris. Sehgal releases four singles leading up to Unfolding with each showcasing the complexities of finding love and discovering one’s identity in modern times.
Kabir Sehgal is leading the movement for more Indian-American producers to break through in the pop music world with an inclusive mix of diverse voices represented on Unfolding. Few Indian-American producers are working in the pop genre, and Sehgal wants to change that. He comments, “Indian-Americans can often be pigeonholed and not considered part of the mainstream. But the Indian-American experience is part of the American experience. Unfolding is one step towards bringing Indian-Americans and BIPOC artists into the spotlight.”
Sehgal has three GRAMMY-nominated projects in 2022, including for the book he wrote with Congressman John Lewis: Carry On: Reflections for a New Generation (“Best Spoken Word Album”) — Sehgal co-produced the audiobook. He is also hard at work as an activist/writer advocating for the Indian-American community. He has written for MarketWatch on the importance of registering Asian-Americans to vote; written several books on immigration including Home: Where Everyone Is Welcome (with Deepak Chopra), a book of 34-poems inspired by immigrants and first-generation Americans; released four albums with Deepak Chopra as an artist; and has collaborated with Anoushka Shankar and produced works featuring Vijay Iyer and Rudresh Mahanthappa.
On Unfolding, Sehgal teams up with songwriting partner Greer Baxter (LINK) on three of the four pop songs. Unfolding includes four singles: “When We Fight” with Ariana Savalas (Release Date: April 7), “Out of the Blue” with Sonna Rele (Release Date: April 14), “Big City Pipe Dreams” with Nicole Zuraitis (Release Date: April 21), and “Collateral” with Leah Harris (Release Date: May 5).
