Rhett May is a seasoned musician.
He has left musical footprints that lead out of India - to his current home in Australia.
Rhett owes his rare musical sound and style to the unique environment that he grew up in.
Born in Calcutta, India, he was immersed in a magical, musical melting pot. Carnatic and Hindustani music and instruments such as the Sitar and Tabla always providing melody and percussion against a daily backdrop of lifting and soaring voices of Ragas. Rhett May is a voice of experience in a rock world which has become increasingly shallow. He’s toured the world, seen the music industry from the inside, and watched the dark side of the business consume those around him.
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.
Rhett wholeheartedly tackles the issues of the ICE epidemic with his award winning single ‘The Violence of Ice’ head on.
It shows the dangers that come with the consumption and abuse of mind altering substances and how it wrecks families, relationships and ultimately pulls apart the seams of a stable society.
It is exceedingly rare to have a Rock Singer who has such a strong stance on the use of drugs, and that is exactly the point Rhett aims to make; that change is a necessity.
Rhett…. a singer songwriter of immense talent….has moulded his own unique sound over several decades in the industry.
Raw…and with beautifully placed guitar riffs, amazing vocals and stellar song writing infused with the sounds of the Indian streets.
Rhett’s music has a very different flavour to the current cookie-cutter rock music…or anything else around today.
