When Saagar Ace stood in front of a microphone in a sound proof studio to record his first song, there was no nervous anticipation, his heart was not racing, his palms were not sweaty. The music echoed in his headphones and he was off singing with his pure, classic voice. This was home! Saagar has always wanted to create music and record songs. “Singing comes naturally to me. My Mom tells me that I could sing before I could talk.”
Ever since he was a kid, people have remarked on his singing talent. “My kindergarten teacher told my parents after my first performance as a 5-year old that I was going to become a singing star.” His parents enrolled him to Suzuki violin classes when he was 5. The Suzuki “mother-tongue” method of teaching music trained Saagar's ear to discern musical notes and made him appreciate the wonder of music. “I was humming Bach and Mozart melodies before I knew who they were.”
Throughout high school, Saagar sang in multiple choirs, chorals, and a capella groups. He also performed solos in various local coffee-house shows and musicals, as well as nationally. In January 2013, Saagar was signed by Rocket Records, the record label under which he released his debut album on July 1, 2013. The 6-song EP album was fully produced by Atlantic Hill Music and its Founder & CEO, world-renowned music producer Tim Coons, who is the original music producer of famous artists such as the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, JoJo, and a multitude of others.
Even though Saagar likes all kinds of music, what he really enjoys singing the most is Pop and R&B. “I want to create music that blends the sounds of Pop with the beats of Contemporary R&B. Just give me a haunting melody, soulful lyrics, and toe-tapping rhythm, and I’m in the groove.”
Besides singing, he enjoys playing tennis, swimming and hanging with his friends. He is optimistic about his chances of getting recognition for his music, as he states: “I am sure once people hear my songs, they will enjoy them and support me to create more beautiful music.”
