PRAKHAR JAIN

I'm a final year - engineering student, who is more into music, photography and creativity.

From the very beginning, I've got music within myself. From breaking a xylophone to self learning keyboard, I finally got my guitar. My parents always supported me and after joining the college, the whole scenario changed and now it's not just my hobby, it's my passion.

I worked as the backing vocalist and acoustic guitarist in "ABHINYA BAND".
At present I'm the backing vocalist and lead guitarist in "ALCHEMISTS-The BAND".

Also it is a Multi-Genre Band, having a goal of covering most of the existing genres from soft rock to the death metal.
