Jasraj Singh, aka Jerry Singh, is no ordinary guy. In a career that only lasted a few years, he has already managed to make a name for himself in the industry, while remaining completely behind the scenes as a producer and songwriter. He’s probably one of the most accomplished 23 years in music you’ve ever heard of, and he’s just getting started. Singh is heavily inspired by a long list of artists ranging from Skrillex to Quincy Jones. But the person who introduced him to the world of music is a big part of the music himself. Being the son of singer Jasbir Jassi, one of India’s most famous Punjabi singers, Jerry Singh got a taste of concerts and studio sessions when he was just 14 years old.
I’ve always been a creative person, but music was never something I thought I wanted to do. But in ninth grade my dad gave me music production software and I ended up liking how I felt. I think that was the start of everything. Singh decided to take music professionally and studied music production in London. As a producer, it can take years to land a big project or earn a name in the industry. But Singh was fortunate enough to meet famous veteran producer Jeff Bhasker, winner of a Grammy. “I met him [Bhasker] in 2017 at the MTV India Music Summit. He is also a very good friend of my father, and they have worked together before. He heard my music and liked it. While staying here we went to Dalhousie and just spent the day making music.
Bhasker plays a key role in Singh’s career. Singh’s highlight in his current music portfolio includes a credited contribution on Dua Lipa’s latest album, Future Nostalgia, and the production of the HBO show, Betty, which took place thanks to Bhasker and of course, to Singh’s talent. “Last summer I was in LA. he [Bhasker] invited me in and let me stay with him for a few months, and showed his whole process. You could say I was working as an assistant. He gave me tasks to do, but in between, I used to spend time with production. One day Jeff was working on the Dua Lipa project, and we were discussing what should be added or changed. At that point he looked at me and said, “Do you want to try it?” It was a big deal, but I enthusiastically said yes. He then left and left me time with it, without intervening or supervising me, letting me do my thing on the track.
While with Bhasker, Singh also met the famous Japanese composer Aska Matsumiya, who is popular for her TV series soundtracks. Bhasker introduced her to Singh’s production and she asked him to contribute to the soundtrack she was composing for HBO’s Betty. “I used to meet Aska Matsumiya when I was working with Jeff. One day she heard clips of what I was working on and she loved it, so she asked me to participate in a few projects. This is how it happened. On the home front, the highlight of Singh’s career is his work on Akshay Kumar star Kesari. Singh worked with his father and produced Ek Onkaar, for the film.
Singh has also worked with his brother, Simba Sing, on a single called 80s Love, and is in the process of releasing more. “During the lockdown, my brother and I worked on music. As a result, we have four singles in a row, which are totally different styles than what we usually do. I am excited about it. “Jerry Singh doesn’t want to be in the spotlight, at least not right now. He wants to use his momentum to move it forward, explore new sounds and collaborate with unique artists, aiming to be a producer and writer- A respected composer who defends and creatively enhances the artist’s concept and ideologies, but he’s also one of the young producers you should keep an eye on and a listening ear for.
