Today Deep Jandu is not merely a name but a brand in itself. A brand with whom every big name of the industry wants to work at least once because the entire industry believes that Deep Jandu is not merely a musician but a magician with musical instruments, who can make anything happen.
But you might think that how come a youngster who was born and raised in Canada is now ruling the realm of Punjabi industry?
Well, it all started at the age of 14 when teenager Deep became part of a local Bhangra group ‘Sonay Gabroo Punjab De’. It was here that he developed a keen interest in Boliyan.
While performing with ‘Sonay Gabroo Punjab De,’ ‘Deep’ developed a deep inclination towards music. All thanks to the legends like Kuldeep Manak, Labh Heera, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Dilshad Akhtar who planted that tiny seed of music within him.
His obsession for music can be understood very well from this instance when he went all out to meet Jazzy B. Teenager Deep who was then a die-hard fan of Jazzy B, waited for more than 5 hours just to get a glimpse of this superstar. This passion eventually took him to Pandit Mahesh Mulwani and Ustad Jagdish Singh Virdi from whom he learned music for a while. By then he had firmly made his mind that music will be his ultimate destination. However, his family wanted him to complete his studies and settle down with a decent job but Deep Jandu was in no mood to listen.
Therefore, he went ahead with his musical dreams against the wishes of his family and moved to the UK for a while to try his luck in singing but sadly this move didn’t work for him. After spending some time in the UK he returned back to Canada.
During this phase, he released many songs but none of them could garner success. However in spite of getting repeated failures, Deep didn’t give up on his efforts. His efforts finally paid off when he released his first hit track ‘Affair’ with Elly Mangat, which was viewed more than 17 million times on YouTube. And needless to say ever since then his career has been cruising like Usain Bolt.
