Gaurav Anand’s musical journey is a testament to passion, dedication, and the pursuit of dreams.
The Humble Beginnings: ‘Nirabata’ and Beyond
Gaurav Anand’s musical journey began six years ago with the release of his music video, ‘Nirabata.’ From there, he steadily climbed the ladder of success, collaborating with some of Odisha’s most prominent music composers. In an exclusive interview, Gaurav shares his thoughts on his newfound success, the ups and downs of his journey, and his vision for the future.
Gaurav Anand shares, “I am pleased about all the buzz and hype around, but at the same time, I am trying to remain calm and focused on my next work so that I won’t disappoint the audience.”
A Dreamer’s Path to Success
For Gaurav, convincing his parents to allow him to pursue music was the first significant challenge. Like many Indian parents, they had dreams of a secure job and a settled life for their child. However, Gaurav’s passion and talent eventually won them over as he started receiving consistent work opportunities.
Gaurav reflects on this hurdle, “Helping them understand was a bit difficult, but ultimately they understood when I started getting work.”
Curious about his musical influences, we asked Gaurav about the singers and composers he looks up to. His response emphasizes his respect for the rich tapestry of musical talent that has inspired him throughout his career.
Gaurav Anand shares, “There are many singers and composers I look up to, and I have learned something or the other from each and everyone. The list is too long to name.”
Winning Hearts with Music
The process of composing a song, as Gaurav describes it, is a fascinating journey. It begins with the narration of the story and a creative brief. From there, the melody is either composed first, with lyrics following suit, or the lyrics are provided, and the tune is crafted around them. Once the melody and lyrics are locked in, the music arrangements and programming take center stage.
When asked about the secret recipe for creating a hit song, Gaurav has a simple yet profound message: there’s no formula. Authenticity and honesty are the keys. “All one needs to do is the thing which one is given, with proper honesty, and nothing else; that will automatically click with the audience,” he says.
A Supportive Family
Gaurav’s family has been a constant source of support. His grandfather’s prowess as a songwriter, playwright, and dramatist, and his father’s musical talents, have undoubtedly influenced his own journey. This nurturing environment helped him pursue his passion for music fearlessly.
The rise of digital platforms has played a pivotal role in Gaurav’s career, helping him reach a global audience. “The prevalence of digital media has definitely helped me reach people and bring forth my talent to the world,” he acknowledges.

That excites me,” he reveals.
