Dipendra Bagchee

Don’t let his hard rock and metal roots fool you, singer–songwriter Dipendra Bagchee has a softer side as well. Better known as the lead vocalist and guitar player for the Monterey Bay Area based hard rock band Asyst, Dipendra has always worked on his own personal music that explores a wider variety of his musical influences.

The darker tones are still there though. Interspersed with soaring choruses and whispered refrains are lyrics that are tempered by pain, heartbreak, and loss. Sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric, sometimes surrounded by a myriad of musical devices like loopers and drum machines, Dipendra doesn't leave any door closed when it comes to songwriting and performing.

Whether it is at an open mic, busking on a street corner, or in a dark corner of a dimly lit bar, Dipendra delivers the same earnest and heartfelt performance, inviting the listener into his world.
