Born on March 8th in Long Island, New York, Wasi picked up the guitar at 19 and has never stopped writing. Wasi proclaims – “I want to be larger than life and then show people that we are all the same.” The paradox of greatness wrapped in humility is a theme that spans his writings. His first album “The first 5” in 2005 with band Snowshoe and Lewis introduced Wasi as a folk-rocker with every day journey charged lyrics with songs like “Breezy System ” Do Your Thing” and “It’s Going Down”. Soon after the band breaking in 2006, Wasi began studying audio engineering and production to release a solo body of work titled ” Dark Noise” which explored his need to confront and understand pain, fear and himself.
With soulful jazz rock rhythms and melody based guitar, the smooth lush chords and altered time signatures are his intriguing method to sound and movement. You must experience this artist!!
