More .Born in Karachi, Shehzad is an instrumental rock guitarist based in Doha, Qatar. It all started in Karachi where he developed his musical taste and interests, and it wasn’t long after picking up a guitar that he was experimenting with different genres including classic rock, blues and melodic rock, all of which have had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey has taken. His first foray into learning an instrument himself came when he started to play the bass guitar. Later, at age 14 he began to play electric & acoustic guitar, and he hasn’t looked back since. After realizing that making music was ultimate calling, he formed a band with his cousins and started playing at various gigs locally in Karachi and making sure that their name and music was being heard by as many people as possible. As their confidence grew, they soon saw a loyal following begin to grow and they became a popular local hit in the music scene. The band took a long study break with a promise to make more music once they were back from their educational sabbatical. But with professional and life commitments, it seemed impossible when some members moved to different countries. Shehzad is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include Joe Satriani, David Gilmour, Eric Johnson, Neil Zaza, Eric Clapton and BB King as amongst his biggest influences. His instrumentals provide a combination of soulful guitar playing and melodies, with a rhythmic undercurrent that bears testament to his own style, punctuated throughout with elements of classic rock, soft rock, blues and pop rock. A banker by profession, he always wanted to share his style of music to the world, a music which is melodious, touches the heart, without any words. It started with a new year resolution which he and his wife made to each other, who is his strongest supporter and critic. He embarked upon his album project in January 2015 with an intention to finish the recording by end of the year. So here he is, picking up his dream where he left off, about to release his debut album, much to the excitement of his already sizeable army of fans. With the album expected to be a success and fame imminent, the exciting, newfangled sound that he has made his own is certain to gain interest from across the world. Finally, after honing his unique sound over recent years, he is now preparing to release his debut album, ‘Never Say Goodbye’, which underlies the changes and experiences that Shehzad has gone through over the years. The biggest of these was the switch from Karachi to Qatar, which has allowed him to develop as a person, and has in turn profoundly aided his musical development. The album has been produced by Shehzad and recorded at his studio in Doha Qatar.. Edit
