Underscore Live Presents Dhruv Visvanath & Nowhere Station
Date: 11th March
Venue: Mic Drop, Delhi
Dhruv Visvanath is a Singer-Songwriter, producer and accomplished acoustic guitarist from New Delhi, India. Having spent a large part of his childhood in various parts of the world like London, Zambia, Hong Kong, and Mumbai to name a few, Dhruv uses the collective experiences from his past to craft his songs and stories. In 2018, Dhruv was India’s only entrant to South By South West, Austin, Texas USA, and the Canadian Music Week in Toronto. His uniques style of playing the guitar led him to be mentioned as one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s 30 Great Guitarists Under 30, alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Laura Marling and many others. Under VLT records, Dhruv released his Debut album “Orion” in 2015. His sophomore release, “The Lost Cause,” released in 2018, was crowdfunded and released independently, debuting at #2 on iTunes Apple Music’s top 50 albums at the time of release. His unique style of playing the guitar allowed him to develop a relationship and an endorsement with the Dehradun Guitar Company in 2018, resulting in his own custom guitar he so lovingly calls, Willow.
Born as a busking project, Nowhere Station was formed in 2017 when the band members were at architecture school in New Delhi. As architects and urban planners, the band members attempt to use their understanding of space, urbanity and design to engage with different contexts, with the idea of taking music beyond the stage and closer to the audience.
A large part of this involves the reclamation of existing public space for performance and interaction; the band has been involved in a number of public campaigns for the same.
