“It was a great experience with Qayaas. I’ve been a fan of every single member of that band and it’s been a joy ride. That band was a journey in itself; of self-exploration and discovering our music, sound and roots through music. It was, in fact, a very important part of my career; being a part of the band, being the lead vocalist, the frontman, lyricist and songwriter,” says Umair in an interview.
However, the solo journey wasn’t easy and has explained that it was indeed necessary as well.
“It was becoming very hard to sustain, especially in a county like Pakistan where there were hardly any shows,” he explained.
While comparing his current music with Qayaas‘ music, he described his thought process to be quite different than when he was in a band and thus, leaving was necessary for him to find his identity. Moreover, he added that the sound of his original music is something new, pure and very close to his heart.
“I had to go out there and find different musicians, I had to jam and rehearse with them, I had to audition them and see what works for me. It’s been a long journey, but fruitful nonetheless.” he said.
“It’s something very original and I’m sure no one has ever heard that kind of sound in Pakistan ever before.” he further added.
Umair Jaswal has been working on his solo album for over 1 and 1/2 year now and has written other songs in the process as well. What’s amazing is that some of them have been written 10 years ago!
However, this does leave some Coke Studio fans concerned. He was also asked if he was going to be a part of the next season of the music show and the rock-star explained that he needs sometime off for discovering more about himself.
“I will continue taking a break for another year because I really want to discover myself and invest time in making original music.”
