Having spent a large part of his childhood in Calcutta, India, his guitar led songs are infused with the sounds of the Indian streets, giving his music a different flavour to the majority of current, cookie cutter rock music. By blending classic sensibilities with a twist of Indian culture, he has created a string of upcoming singles, the first of which will be ‘The Violence of Ice’ – out October 2nd.
Throughout those experiences, Rhett May continually turned away the excesses of the industry, choosing instead to write his own story as opposed to those who fell into the clutches of addiction. His is a positive message, song writing influenced by a wide and varied back story which took him from an orphanage at seven years old, to the streets of Calcutta in India, to settling in Melbourne, Australia as part of Lucifer.
It’s a lifetime of stories that shape Rhett May’s song writing, not to mention his work ethic – both musically and personally – which sees him answering every piece of fan mail individually.
And come the release of ‘The Violence of Ice’ on October 2nd, we suspect he’ll be answering plenty more.
