Staying true to yourself and breaking into the music biz might just be two of the toughest things one can attempt to do. Try to add both together simultaneously, and you’ve got one heck of a lethal combination. Cue Sid Sriram, this Bay Area native will catch your attention with his smooth vocals, catchy pop hooks and overall ‘easy’ vibe.


Sid’s EP, ever-so appropriately titled, “Be Easy: The Acoustic Sessions,” dropped this week and he’s talking with THE POP FIX about how he is carving out his niche in the music world.

On what listeners can expect from his EP

Genre wise it the album is completely stripped down acoustic with just guitar and vocals. My vocals are R&B. My writing is indie pop with catchy hooks, but with more depth than club songs. I classify myself as an urban indie pop writer. Bringing together different musical genre’s, coming together in a really simple way, it is urban music meeting indie flavor.

On comparisons to Bruno Mars

I appreciate the comparison and he’s an amazing singer, but every artist has their own voice. I’m more urban and indie.

On doing covers and original music

There’s so much more of you in your own music. It’s genuine. I can put so much more into the song that way.

On music and social media

Social media gives you the ability to reach out to thousands of millions of people. It completely opens up the market place for you to perform to an audience.

On the meaning behind the name of the EP “Be Easy”

“Be Easy” is initially a song I wrote at my college dorm. My friend started playing a guitar line and I started writing to it. I had the term “be easy” stuck in my head for a while. “Be easy” is a term that I use calm myself down, relax and just be easy. It means taking a step back and not being so caught up. The song, “Be Easy” goes well with the flavor of the EP because it’s all acoustic songs with a really chilled out vibe.

On reviving pop music

Every song that I’ve written has a story behind it. I want to revive music, making pop music amazing again, going back to the Michael Jackson vibe.

On where he draws inspiration for his music

Everything is open – life is an open canvas and you can paint anything you want on it. Every single song on the EP is about an emotion I’ve felt. They are all specific emotions coming together to show who I am as a person.

If you need some new tunes infused into your musical collection (which we all do) be sure to download Sid’s five song EP, “Be Easy: The Acoustic Sessions” on Bandcamp now!
