About the project

Upcoming Jazz vocalists Sanjeeta Bhattacharya's music video for her song 'You Shine' is an homage to artists Chester Bennington & Karan Joseph. 



A little about myself


I started singing at the age of 7, and recorded my first song in 2010. After graduating from Berklee, I returned to India in 2016, and since then I have been exploring my sound through Balkan, Latin and Jazz music.


What is the inspiration behind this song 'You Shine'?


The untimely deaths of Chester Bennington and Karan Joseph, both hugely talented musicians, is the main reason for me to write this song. It triggered something in me; a sense of reaching out and saying that it’s okay to be not okay. It is a tribute to artists and their art; a message of hope for those who put their most vulnerable selves out there. 




What is the video going to be like?


The video for You Shine is a story about a musician who is seemingly loved by everyone around him and looks happy. However, in the midst of a crowd he silently feels alone. Mental health is one of the central themes of this song and with this video, the aim is to put forth the message that even though there might be times when you don’t feel your best, you are loved unconditionally. I want to be able to reach out to someone who may need inspiration to not give up and succumb to depression through this video. 




The importance of indie music to me


I am only about a year old in the music scene in India. I am meeting more musicians and incredible people everyday. People who put their heart and soul, time and money and so much hard work into their music. The indie music scene is growing fast but it needs more attention from the masses, more sponsorship, patronage, listeners and support. For far too long, independent music has been pushed into a corner and musicians have had to play commercial radio music to please crowds. If someone is brave enough to be vulnerable and make you hear a chapter from their heart’s diary, give it a listen and spread the word far and wide.




Why crowdfunding?

I chose to raise funds from the crowd because just like my music, I would love for it to be a collaborative effort from my friends, family and listeners to help me make this a top notch video. I have never tried such a thing before but there is always a first time and I hope this will also help me garner more listeners for the future. As an indie musician, there is always a lack of funds and this is the best way I can think of completing my video.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 100000 in PR+Marketing

Rs. 150000 in Video Shoot

Rs. 100000 in Miscellaneous


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

I am currently working on this project and a few more. Funding all of this on my own is quite a monumental task. It would be a shame if lack of funds causes delay in the release of the music video. The challenge is that this is an All or Nothing campaign. So if I don’t raise the entire amount, everything will be refunded back to you and the work on the song and the video will get delayed indefinitely! So please do come forward and support me. You shine on!

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

I chose music over dancing, over becoming a historian and over photography. Those around me have believed in what I do which in turn drove me to make my decisions and emote through my voice. With this belief, I am hoping that I can get you to support me and fund this project as well!
