RANJ + CLIFR
Meteorically rising with each collaborative release like ‘Conversation’, ‘UNO’, ‘Mutual’ and ‘593, Vol. 1’, RANJ x Clifr bring their full band live set to Chennai.
Ranjani Ramadoss is a Chennai-bred musician currently based out of Bangalore. After making music and playing several shows with her two bands – Kelvikkuri (jazz fusion) and Paula & the Associates (neo-soul/pop) – for a couple of years, RANJ is her baby solo project, launched in 2021. As she carves her identity into the indie music space, she tells her stories in English and Tamil, and tries to build her versatility with every release, each occupying a different musical and lyrical space than the last. She is influenced by wide range of artists from Jorja Smith, Yebba, Cleo Sol and Jhene Aiko to rappers like Little Simz, Smino, No Name and BIA.
Clifr is a Bangalore-based musician, playing the role of a music producer and multi-instrumentalist. For the past two years, he's been working with his band KELVIKKURI (jazz fusion) and on his solo music. Clifr released his debut solo project in 2020, ‘State ‘O’ Mind Feat. Lojal’ followed by collaborations with RANJ and Tintin. His musical identity is hugely influenced by hip-hop, trap and experiments with Indian instruments.
Based out of Chennai, STEVIE is a singer, rapper and songwriter whose music revolves around R&B, Hip Hop and everything in between. The winner of the Best Young Indie Artist award in the 2018 RCFA Freedom awards has a steady following with over half a million streams and counting with an EP and numerous singles to his kitty. As a live act, Stevie has performed across the board - playing and headlining at festivals and venues across the country—even sharing stages with international acts like Plini.
