Arjun is a London-based singer, songwriter & music producer of Sri Lankan origin. After completing a BA in Architecture from the University of Cambridge, Arjun took the plunge into the world of music. In 2011 his English remix of the cult hit ‘Why This Kolaveri Di’ put him on the international map. This inspired him to develop his signature R&B Fusion formula, combining influences from his Asian heritage and Western upbringing. He has built a global following amongst Asian youth, and has toured on every continent.
In 2014 he became the first artist outside India to sign a record deal with India’s largest music company, T-Series. His first single for T-Series, ‘I’ll Be Waiting’, has over 25 million views and charted at #1 on the iTunes India Chart. He has performed alongside some of the biggest stars from East and West, including Chris Brown and Arijit Singh; on iconic stages such as Wembley Arena and Times Square; and made appearances on major UK platforms including BBC Radio 1 and Blue Peter. An enthusiastic follower of cricket and the Sri Lankan national team, he also collaborated with Bathiya and Santhush on the 2012 World T20 theme song.
Arjun is currently the most viewed UK Asian artist on YouTube with nearly 200 million views and over 1.4 million Facebook fans. His work has been recognised by the UK Asian Music Awards, Eastern Eye Awards, and the GIMA Awards in India.
