Born and raised in Penang Malaysia, Shree brings together the rich influence of his ethnic Malaysia and a deep-rooted connection to South Indian music in a collaborative genre all his own. His thirty-one years in Hawai’i have also introduced him to Classic American Blues, Jazz, and Funk. His biggest influences in music are the legendary Carlos Santana, Ravi Shankar and the stylings of Police guitarist Andy Summers. Putting this all together, he creates a psychedelic guitar sound that is picked, strummed and bowed. This is the signature sound he has brought to the touring band Quadraphonix and as the current lead of his own band BSOS or Brighter Side of SOL.
