Discovery: Neel Kumar

Neel Kumar is a Canadian singer songwriter whose new track Take Me Now is a simple but effective meditation on the moments when your life seems to stall.

By Graeme Smith

We all have times in our life when we’d happily curl up and die and we all handle it in different ways. Neel’s approach was to write a song about it. Take Me Now explores emotional exhaustion with delicate vocals, acoustic guitar and traces of twinkling percussion. It’s simple but powerful and really captures the mood.

Alongside writing and performing music, Neel is a film director who enjoys telling stories in different ways. Personally, I’d love to hear more of his music and hope you will too. Check out Take Me Now below.
