Shreya Ghoshal was born on 12 March 1984[1] in Berhampore, Murshidabad, West Bengal into a Bengali Brahmin family.[6] She grew up in Rawatbhata, a small town near Kota, Rajasthan.[7] Her father, Bishwajit Ghoshal is an electrical engineer and works for the Nuclear Power Corporation of India, and her mother, Sarmistha Ghoshal, is a literature post-graduate.[8] At the age of four, she started learning music.[9][10] She has a younger brother, Soumyadeep Ghoshal who is also a musician.[11]

Ghoshal completed her schooling up to eighth grade at the Atomic Energy Central School No.4 in Rawatbhata.[7] In 1995, she won the All India Light Vocal Music Competition, New Delhi, organised by Sangam Kala Group, in Light Vocal group in sub-junior level. In 1997, when her father was transferred to the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, she was relocated to Mumbai, with her family and studied at the Atomic Energy Central School in Anushakti Nagar.[12] She joined the Atomic Energy Junior College to study science. She dropped out from the junior college and enrolled at the SIES College of Arts, Science, and Commerce in Mumbai, where she took up arts with English as her major.[8][7][13]

Ghoshal's mother used to help her in rehearsals and accompany her on the Tanpura, starting with mostly Bengali songs. At the age of six, Ghoshal began receiving formal training in classical music. She trained with Late Kalyanji Bhai for 18 months and continued her classical music training with Late Mukta Bhide in Mumbai.[14][13] Her first stage performance was at a club's annual function. When she turned six, she started her lessons in Hindustani classical music.[7] In 2000, at the age of sixteen, she participated and won the television music reality show Sa Re Ga Ma (now Sa Re Ga Ma Pa) on the channel Zee TV.[15][16][17]

Career[edit]

Ghoshal's first recording was "Ganraj Rangi Nachato", which is a cover version of a Marathi song originally sung by Lata Mangeshkar.[18] Her first studio album was Bendhechhi Beena, which was released on 1 January 1998, with 14 tracks.[2] Some of her earlier albums are O Tota Pakhi Re, Ekti Katha (1999), and Mukhor Porag (2000).

2002–2004: Playback singing debut and breakthrough[edit]

Ghoshal caught the attention of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali when she participated in the 75th children's special episode of Sa Re Ga Ma. Bhansali's mother, Leela Bhansali was watching the show and during Ghoshal's performance, she called him to watch her performance, after which he decided to give her a chance in his next film.[13] According to Bhansali, Ghoshal's voice had the innocence needed for the character of Paro in Devdas (2002).[12][19]

In 2000, Bhansali and music director Ismail Darbar offered her the opportunity to be the voice of Paro, the lead female character of Devdas, who was portrayed by Aishwarya Rai.[12][20] Ghoshal sang five songs in the film, namely, "Silsila Ye Chaahat Ka", "Bairi Piya", "Chalak Chalak", "Morey Piya", and "Dola Re Dola", with established singers such as Kavita Krishnamurthy, Udit Narayan, Vinod Rathod, KK, and Jaspinder Narula.[21] She was sixteen when she recorded the first song for the film, "Bairi Piya" with Udit Narayan. Her Higher Secondary Examinations were nearing that time and she would take her books and notebooks to the studio to study during downtime. "Bairi Piya" was an instant success and topped the charts.[12] The film garnered her first Filmfare Award for Best Female Playback Singer for "Dola Re" (shared with Kavita Krishnamurthy)[22] and a National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer for "Bairi Piya".[23] Her performance also won her the Filmfare RD Burman Award for New Music Talent.[22]

I remember I was asked to rehearse the song once before finally recording it. I simply closed my eyes and sang without a break. When I opened my eyes, I noticed a lot of excitement and chaos outside the recording room. Then Sanjayji told me I had sung the song so well that they had recorded it at one go.

She was an immediate success and was called by various other Indian film industries for recording songs in her voice.[12] Ghoshal was next heard in Darbar-composed Desh Devi, where she performed three tracks for the film.[24]

Kreem's Jism, which prevented her from being stereotyped.[25] According to Ghoshal, "Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai" and "Chalo Tumko Lekar Chale" from the film "made everyone look at [her] in a new light", opening the doors to a "versatile image".[26] She was awarded with another Filmfare trophy for Best Female Playback Singer for the song "Jaadu Hai Nasha Hai".[27] She thereupon worked with Anu Malik, where she performed the female version of "Aye Meri Zindagi", "Seena Pada" and "Aai Jo Teri Yaad", along with the bhajan-styled "Har Taraf".[28] In addition to providing vocals for "Har Taraf", Ghoshal also made her first on-screen appearance in Saaya, as the school girl singing the song.[29][30] Apart from Inteha, Ghoshal provided vocals for Malik in two other films, Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and LOC: Kargil, where she recorded the song "Chann Chann" for the former and "Pyaar Bhara Geet" for the latter, along with Sonu Nigam.[31][32] Besides, Ghoshal made her first collaboration with Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy by performing the female version of the song "Tu Hi Bata Zindagi".

During the time, Nadeem–Shravan composed Tumsa Nahin Dekha: A Love Story was considered to be the biggest album for Ghoshal, as she sang all the numbers with an exception of one song.[39] She performed a wide variety of songs—from a jazzy number to soft romantic tunes—in the album.[40] According to Ghoshal, the album allowed her to "experiment with the entire range" of her "singing capabilities".[40] Besides, Ghoshal lent her voice for Malik, where she sang "Tumhe Jo Maine Dekha" and "Gori Gori" for Main Hoon Na apart from the title track.[41] Mid-Day affirmed that Ghoshal provided "perfect accompaniment" for the track, while Rediff.com was "impressed with her rendition".[42][43] The year marks her first collaboration with Rajesh Roshan and Pritam by singing the melodious track for the former composed "Saansein Ghulne Lagi" from Aetbaar and performing the track "Shikdum" from Dhoom, for the latter.[44][45]

Artistry[edit]

Influences[edit]

Voice[edit]

Ghoshal has performed songs with a lower vocal range.[365] However, Metro Times calls her voice a "sweet and smokey soprano".[366] Her voice has been described as "sweet" with "slight huskiness".[367][368] The Recording Academy (Grammys) described her voice as "honeyed soprano" and also noted Ghoshal for her versatility.[369] In an interview, Ghoshal noted that her voice has transformed from the "girlish tenor" of the earlier days to a more matured texture.[365] Her voice is characterized in the media for being most suitable for higher-pitched renditions, although some critics have said that her voice tends to screech when she reaches a higher note of scale.[370] Similarly, in the book Confession of a Coward – an Indian Adventure, it was stated that Ghoshal's high-pitched vocals are interesting and impressive, but "certainly take some time getting used to it".[371] Ghoshal has voiced against correcting pitch with Auto-Tune.[372][373] About her singing and rehearsing style, she has said, "I have a special way of writing the lyrics when it is dictated to me. No matter what the language of the song, even if it is Bengali, I write it in Hindi. I have certain notations and markings to indicate the way it should be pronounced. I feel the Devanagari script is the closest to the phonetics of the language. English letters are not very good for that purpose. Moreover, I listen carefully and try to grasp as much as possible when the lyrics are read to me".[374]

Ghoshal is noted for her wide vocal range,[375][376][377] and versatility.[378][379][380][369] What makes Ghoshal remarkable among her contemporaries, according to The Indian Express is, the "serenity in her voice" and the "enviable range".[372] Further complimenting her versatile vocal range, they noted: "The honey-dipped inflection of [her voice], which once put in the recording studio, can turn into naughty, sensuous, serious, sad, comic and pure classical, depending on the requirement of the job".[372] Naming her as the "most versatile singer of this generation", India West remarked the smoothness of her voice when flowing from "lower registers to higher notes".[381] According to The Times of India, Ghoshal maintains the "touch of versatility" with her music by singing different style of songs from classical to pure commercial music.[382] Ghoshal is also noted for her voice quality, expressions and incredible ability to master pronunciation across different languages.[383][384][385][386][387] Ghoshal has admitted in various interviews that language has never been a barrier when it comes to her craft and she is particular about her diction and expressions in every language she sings.[388][389][390][391][392] In 2003, Ghoshal admitted that she modulates her voice well, hence "none of the music directors have yet been able to label me".[382]

Ghoshal took vocal lessons and did workshops with Kalyanji Virji Shah, where she learnt the technique about "throw of voice, straight notes, vibratos."[26] She considers classical music training as an asset in playback since it "keeps one's voice fit and fresh."[26] Music director Shekhar Ravjiani praised Ghoshal for her singing versatility.[393] According to Sonu Nigam, the best quality about Ghoshal is that the expressions come perfectly along with mannerisms.[394][395] Music director and singer M. Jayachandran praised Ghoshal by saying, "It is amazing how she writes down the lyrics in Hindi and then gives her signature nuanced expressions to Malayalam words".[396] During her interviews, Ghoshal mentioned, "I cannot sing double meaning songs or the songs which have vulgar lyrics".[397]
