Eeshan Tripathi is a Mumbai-based Pianist/Keyboardist, Composer, Producer, Live performer and one half of the composer duo Eeshan : Kaushik. Since 2015, he has been a part of Aditya Narayan & The A Team. With Narayan, who is also the son of venerated multilingual playback singer, Udit Narayan, Eeshan has played countless gigs from headlining IIT Mumbai’s Mood Indigo to performing sold-out concerts in the likes of London’s O2 Arena and Leicester's De Montfort Hall. Formally, a post graduate in Advertising and Marketing from Xavier Institute of Communications (XIC), Eeshan began learning the piano at the age of 5 and he is a qualified grade 6 pianist from Trinity College of Music, London. A self-described “musician for the song” who adapts his skills to support ambitious songs both in the studio and on stage, Eeshan's main musical intention is always “to sonically support the singer and do what's best needed for the song". His debut single "Khoye Pal" with his partner in crime Kaushik Ramachandran was not only regarded as an anthem of Positive Escapism by The Score Magazine, but it also became a part of the celebration of Royal Enfield's 120 yr old legacy. Eeshan has also lent his production and composition skills to both Udit Narayan & Aditya Narayan, crafting songs that have often racked up millions of views on YouTube and been featured on primetime television shows such as The Kapil Sharma Show. In addition to touring extensively with Aditya Narayan, he is also a keyboardist for music director duo Sachin-Jigar, composer Amaal Malik, singer Shruti Pathak and longstanding indie pop duo Colonial Cousins. Eeshan is also the only Indian musician thus far to have provided music for an improv comedy set performed by the legend Ryan Stiles at his Upfront Theatre in Bellingham, USA.
