New single ‘Is This The Way’ gives listenersa different perspective on life
SANTA CLARA, CA – Nischal Raj is a singer/songwriter currently based in Santa Clara, California whose first studio-produced single “Is This The Way” is gaining attention from people all along the West Coast.
Nischal has been involved with music for more than a decade, being a lead guitarist for various bands in India before moving to the U.S. Since coming to America, he has been further pursuing his passion exploring more on songwriting along with being involved in other music collaborations. He always had the dream to create his own music and over these years has dedicated himself to working on composing original music in his home studio. When he started posting some of those songs online, the response he received from people spurred him on to keep creating.
“I want my music to be known for changing someone’s attitude,” Nischal said. “Music can have a great impact and it has been my passion for a long time. I believe that if people stick to their passion, it can transform them and impact others too. Music has been a way of expression and a driving force in my life. I hope to create some good music and inspire others as well.”
His new single, “Is This The Way” is set to drop on Oct. 4 on all digital streaming platforms followed by a music video. Nischal describes it as a soft-rock genre song with a “positive, philosophical message that takes you on a journey and makes you take a hard look at the things about this life.” Billed as a “motivational” song, Nischal said he hopes it will inspire listeners to ask deeper questions on life rather than leading a mundane, superficial life without exploring the depths of their potential.
“People get caught up in their routines but this song asks them the question: ‘Is this the way you want to live?’” Nischal said. “Are you following your dreams? How do you want to feel about yourself and everything around you? Is there anything that you cannot overcome? There is always something wonderful happening each moment so live totally in the present. Realize your true potential and wholeness then nothing can stop you from leading a life of peace and abundance.”
True to his unique sound and style, the single is very guitar-forward and features a mix of unique melodies and some hints of his Indian influence. More than anything however, it features Nischal’s penchant for writing inspiring lyrics that are positive, uplifting and takes the listeners on a quest.
Nischal said this single is just the first of many to come over the next few months and promises that fans can look forward to more singles from him before the end of the year.
