November 16, 2015 – Mumbai, Maharashtra, India – Purplehed is the kind of label that often works for love, rather than the money. With no time for gimmicks, it’s a label that believes in one simple thing, “Create Beautiful Music” that expresses strength and freedom that resonate in the listener’s heart.
Founded by two brothers Ashutosh Upadhyay an alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur and Anurag Upadhyay an alumnus of National Institute of Technology, Warangal, Purplehed is an independent record label based in Mumbai, India, which began operations on May 14, 2014. Its single “Feel the passion” was recently released on July 24, 2015 on VEVO and MUZU. Purplehed was recently reviewed by an Indie Music Magazine “Jamsphere”.
Ashutosh’s advice to fellow entrepreneurs: “Creating something new is a time-consuming process and requires tremendous faith and perseverance. The process may entail a lot of iterations. So, it becomes important to choose something one is passionate about. If one enjoys the process, it becomes easier to get through the countless failures before the eventual success.”
Purplehed is also stage name for Ashutosh (Founder of Purplehed) who is also Song-Writer/Lyricist/Singer/Composer. His idea behind establishing Purplehed is to explore diverse music and dance art forms with the aim of inspiring people. Ashutosh started his music journey with live performances and later explored music production by creating background scores for Anurag’s dance musical productions.
Anurag (Co-Founder of Purplehed), on the other hand, went on to study contemporary dance on a full time basis. After adding several dance forms to his repertoire, he moved on to study acting, and even learnt film production. It took several years for the duo to understand the entire music/dance/film production process, and to build a team before Purplehed was conceived.
