Early life[edit]

Sid Sriram was born in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India to Tamil family. He moved with his parents to California when he was a year old, and he grew up in Fremont. His musical skills were nurtured by his mother, Latha Sriram, a Carnatic music teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area.[5] He started learning Carnatic music since he was 3 years old.

He simultaneously started picking up R&B. After graduating from Mission San Jose High School in 2008, he joined the Berklee College of Music and graduated in music production and engineering.[6] Since his graduation, he has been regularly visiting India and performing Carnatic concerts, including as a part of the December Music season - Marghazhi Utsavam. Since then, he moved back to India and currently resides in the Mylapore area in Chennai.[7]

Singing career[edit]

He also recently worked in some Malayalam songs like Uyire from Gauthamante Radham and also worked in some Telugu songs like Kola Kale Ila from Varudu Kavalenu. He also sang two songs from the Hindi film Jhund.

He also made his debut as a music composer where he would compose for ace director Mani Ratnam's production, Vaanam Kottatum, which is directed by Mani's former assistant and director of Padaiveeran, Dhana Sekharan. His Srivalli song from Pushpa: The Rise was well received[8]
