(Los Angeles, CA – January 27th, 2023) – Today, rising singer/songwriter Paravi releases her new single “Broken English” via RCA Records. The beautiful, piano-driven ballad is anchored by Paravi’s confessional-style lyricism and soulful vocals. Listen HERE.
Speaking on the single, Paravi says, “”Broken English” is about growing up as a child of immigrants and watching the gut-wrenching reality of how immigrants are treated in this world come to fruition from an age that should be too young for that. It’s watching their accent get heckled, it’s seeing them being treated as “dumb”, knowing that their counterparts are getting promoted instead of them because they are “easier to understand”. It’s about every excuse that this version of America can sometimes make in an effort to ensure that no immigrant feels at home or accepted. But the thing is, this is still their home. That’s what this story is about. Regardless, this is still your home.”
2022 was a banner year for Paravi as she released her first original song “Golden Child” followed by the powerful pop anthem “Angry”. She was featured on the official motion picture soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster film ELVIS for her rendition of the iconic “Suspicious Minds”. Paravi played a run of show dates supporting NIKI on her North American Tour which included a sold-out show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. Deemed a “…musical force to be reckoned with” by NYLON, Paravi continues to carefully craft a style of her own, alternating between moments of vivid vulnerability and vocal vitality above organically warm production.
21-year-old Indian-American singer/songwriter and artist Paravi has built an audience of over 3.1M followers and has amassed over 260M views and 42M streams to date. From a young age, Paravi has always gravitated towards art and performance studying Indian theater and undergoing training in classical Indian dance and singing through high school. Now a graduate in Musical Theater at UCLA, Paravi originally turned to social media during the 2020 lockdown. Initially, she posted a short vocal cover of BØRNS’ “Electric Love” from her bathroom. Gaining traction, she recorded a full version on GarageBand and uploaded it to DSPs without any expectations. It eventually garnered over 7.3M Spotify streams. Maintaining this momentum, she continued to build an audience with her covers and in the summer of 2021, she officially released her viral rendition of Beach Bunny’s “Cloud 9”. Her debut EP Thank You For Being Here featured all covers.
