Biography

Toronto, Canada (2003 – present)

Raghav Mathur (born April 2, 1981 in Toronto), known professionally as Raghav, is a Canadian singer, currently signed to Cordova Bay Records. He is best known for his single “Angel Eyes” which peaked at number 7 in the UK in 2005. His singles “So Confused”, “Can’t Get Enough” and “It Can’t Be Right” reached the UK top ten in 2004 making him the only artist that year to have three top ten hits in the UK chart.

Raghav was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to Hindu parents from India. His parents soon moved to Calgary and Fort McMurray, Alberta, where he grew up. At the age of 15, music became a heavy feature in his life and alongside the Indian influences at home, became heavily influenced by R&B. By the time he was 16, he wrote a song that was awarded by the National Songwriters Association of U.S.A. At 17 he moved to Los Angeles, California, United States to develop his vocal skills by Seth Riggs who has trained, amongst others, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. A year later he moved to Liverpool, England where he studied at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. During his time in college, he joined R&B band 11/7 which was nominated for a Mobo Award for best unsigned artist.

Raghav signed for A&R/V2 Records in 2003 and started working with the DJ and producer, 2Play. This led to the production of his breakthrough single: “So Confused”.
