His first album was titled Buraans, after a flower found in the hills. He has sung over 1,000 songs.

He has also given his voice in Garhwali movies such as Chakrachal, Gharjawai, and Meri Ganga Holi Ta Maima Aali.

Songs like "Naya Zamana Ka Choron" which shows generational disparity, "Bol Chitthi Kile Ni Bhezi" depicting the innocence of adolescent love and "tehri doobhana lagyun cha" which shows the pain of people losing their homes because of the tehri dams are some of his hits.His song "Nau Chami Narayana" about government corruption created quite uproar among that times congress government led by Narayan Dutt Tiwari.n Most of young singer are singing Narendra Singh Negi song and make mashup
