Bollywood playback singer, composer, recording artiste and actor Thomson Andrews who has managed to impress us with his unique voice in songs like ‘Bach Ke Bakshi’ from ‘ Detective Byomkesh Bakshi’, ‘Shehar Mera’ from ‘One By Two’ and ‘Rumani’ from the movie ‘Akaash Vani’ has a new release ‘Un Paarvayil’, from the upcoming Tamil film ‘Nisabdham’. This is Thomson’s second Tamil song after the superhit track ‘Saridhaana‘ from ‘Amara Kaaviyam’ and he is really excited about the same.
‘Un Paarvayil’ is a romantic track and Thomson is glad he got an opportunity and is receiving a lot of love from South India where the song is already becoming popular.
Sharing the experience of workin,g on the song, Thomson says,
“My song, Un Paarvayil, in the film, Nisabdham, is a romantic duet between a man and a woman and how they meet, fall in love, become a family and their love for their daughter. Shawn Jazeel (Music Composer of the film) and I finished dubbing the song in a few hours. I love learning new languages and trying out their unique dialect. I have been fortunate to sing 40 advertising jingles so far in as many as 12 languages for various brands globally. Also, I’m half Tamilian and half Malayali, raised in Mumbai with relatives in Chennai. Tamil, being one of my native languages from my mom’s side of the family, is an added advantage. I am always exposed to Tamil television channels, which surely helped me in the familiarity of the speech and dialect of Tamil songs”.
Thomson recently dubbed for Pritam on the background music of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees and has sung additional vocals for upcoming movie Rangoon. He is about to release his 1st International music video that was shot in LA, his Funk Pop single ‘I got your money’ and has also released a debut single with his band ‘SPUNQX’. Thomson currently travels and performs with Sunidhi Chauhan globally on her concerts.
Apart from Tamil, English and Hindi, Thomson can sing in Malayalam, Kannada, Tulu, Marathi, Bengali and has sung several International ad jingles to his credit for products in Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, West Indies among others.
Well, isn’t he quite talented!
