Indrachapa Liyanage was born in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on January 13, 1982 and educated at Ananda College Colombo. His music career started in the year 2000, with his school mate Kasun Kalhara in their own project. They released an album called Haritha Nimnaye, and it was a very successful release, and the album introduced them to a huge fan base. But in the years of 2004 and 2005, they closed down their project and went on to each make their own music, though they continued to work together on occasion.
Lately Indrachapa has moved on to rock music and doing experiments in order to create a "Sri Lankan Identity" rock style. His main aim is to popularize rock music among the majority of the country. He has released a single called "Ginidal" which was his first single.
In 2010, he entered the movie industry by composing the theme song for the movie How I Wonder What You Are.
